ABOUT THE SHOW

Memorable Top Gear moments

Can you build your own amphibious car? Can you make a space shuttle from a Reliant Robin? Can you destroy a Toyota Hilux pick-up? In the course of finding out, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have risked their limbs, their lives and what little is left of their dignity.

Top Gear: Ambitious But Rubbish re-lives many of the greatest and boldest endeavours in all their splendour. Richard Hammond presents each of the famous creations from the past 21 series of Top Gear, introducing memorable Top Gear builds to fans old and new, including the Train-Cars, James' Caravan Airship, the Hammerhead Eagle-i Thrust and the Hovervan.
