Channel: BBC Brit (DStv 120)
TX Time: 17h30
Genre: Motoring, Magazine

What's the best new family estate car on the market? According to the Top Gear producers, it's the very competent, very spacious, very practical Skoda Superb. But Matt and Chris reckoned there were a couple of better solutions to the family estate car question. Namely the 208mph Ferrari GTC4 Lusso, and the 190mph Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo.

Sure, they might cost a combined, um, £350,000, but they've both got boots, they've both got proper rear seats, they're both four-wheel drive. How much more practicality do you need?

So to prove just how sensible and family-ish their Ferrari and Porsche really are, Chris and Matt headed to the fjords of Norway for a nice sensible road trip.

Incorporating chainsaws, tunnels, BASE jumpers, and a strangely persistent Viking.
