Top Gear: Albania, RR Ghost, Merc S65, Mulsanne & Jonathan Ross

Top Gear Albania

Top Gear arrive in Albania to test cars for plutocrats who like to drive

This week sees the 3rd Episode of the latest series of Top Gear, with a luxury car shootout – Mercedes S65, Bentley Mulsanne & Rolls Royce Ghost – and Jonathan Ross.

As we said last week when Top Gear played host to Boris Becker as the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car – he can’t hit the top of the leaderboard.

In Boris’s case it’s not a lack of talent that stops him achieving a top time, it’s his size. He’s just too big – and too heavy – to notch up a really quick time. And this week’s star will have the same problem.

But in this case it’s not because he’s big and heavy – although he is – it’s because he’s blind and can’t drive. Yes, tomorrow night on Top Gear sees the return of Jonathan Ross – the only SIARPC ever to get lost round Dunsfold.

On the ‘What’s being driven on Top Gear this week’ front, the gang are off to Saranda in the south of Albania to play with cars aimed at plutocrats who like to drive – the Mercedes S65 AMG, Rolls Royce Ghost and Bentley Mulsanne.

Back in Blighty we get the low-down on the run-out Focus RS – the Focus RS500 – the Cosworth Impreza STi and the Volvo C30 PCP Polestar (which has around 400bhp).

All sounds promising. Usual time – Sunday 8pm BBC2.
