The guys head to Italy for a road trip, with Clarkson bringing an Aston Martin DB11, May a Rolls Royce Dawn, and Hammond, being the odd one out, in a Dodge Challenger Hellcat.

Also, Hammond and May make good on their promise of demolishing Clarkson's house after he lost a bet in the first episode.
