The Executive/Luxury Series was also sold in Europe, rebranded as the Lancia Thema from 2011 until 2014. The producers set up a series of obstacles at a tank test track to simulate a full year’s worth of wear and tear. A tire dragging test involved a steep hill, followed by a suspension test through a series of bumpy dips, and a water splash test through 3 ft of water. At the tire test, Freddie initially tried to have a go due to his car having a tow hitch; however, his Volvo didn’t have enough torque, forcing him to receive an additional push from Chris.

The T8 got a new Cadillac-style nose and a new rear end; however, the rest of the design remained more or less unchanged from the standard Chrysler 300. The only change to the interior was a revised steering wheel with an updated logo. However, due to legal reasons, Beijing Auto did not have the right to continue to use the platform or engine necessary to produce the vehicle, and therefore the continuation of the T8’s development and production prospects came to an end in 2009. Their first challenge is an economy run in a quarry, where they have to beat The Stig’s record of 11 laps in just over 6 minutes in a Vauxhall Corsa – one of Britain’s most popular first cars, using £1 worth of petrol.
Since the two-door Wrangler is arguably better off-road, our choice is the ultimate Rubicon model. It still comes with a standard manual transmission, but the jury is out as to whether a manual or automatic is better off-road (it’s largely a matter of comfort, skill and preference). But for now, we have two engines and two transmissions to play with, as well as a few trim levels and special editions. Many of these luxury saloons are the flagship for the marque and include the newest automotive technology.

The three presenters went on a trip to Vietnam where they were each given 15 million Vietnamese đồng (about US$900) to buy a “set of wheels” able to drive 1,000 miles from Ho Chi Minh City in the south to Halong Bay in the north. However, due to the car prices and the money they were given, the task was completed using cheap motorbikes. The goal was essentially to do in eight days what the Americans failed to do in the ten years of the Vietnam War.
