Top Gear 30

Top Gear is back and is utter carnage...

In the fourth Season Freddie Flintoff, Chris Harris and Paddy McGuinness hit the road again in a series of challenges designed to push them and their cars to the limit.

Season highlights see the trio tackling the thorny issue of 'mid-life crisis' cars, heading to the Scottish Highlands on a punishing off-road adventure, celebrating and driving some of the most iconic cars from the James Bond films, and taking a nostalgic trip down memory lane as they drive their dads' old cars.

Plus reviews of the new Toyota GR Yaris, Lamborghini Sian, Ferrari Roma and more.

In the Season 30 premiere:

Dad's Car

What's the most memorable car in your life? The car you passed your test in? The first one you bought with your own money?

Wrong and wrong.

The most memorable car in your life, according to Freddie, Chris and Paddy, is your dad's car. The one you sat in the back of as a kid.

So, to discover what memories it might dredge up, the presenters headed to the Lake District for an emotional reunion with their own dads' cars – or at least the very closest thing the producers could lay their hands on.

Cue a sepia-tinged, redolent trip down memory lane, and a celebration of the universal joy of Dads Cars.

A trip including, inevitably, some proper dad motorsport – with Stig's Dad at the wheel – and, of course, a final dash for the ferry.

Because no dad's road trip is complete without a dash for the ferry.

The Supercapacitor Supercar

There's a new hybrid supercar out, and it comes from Lamborghini.

Yes, Italy's craziest car company has embraced electric, and, as you might expect, it's very much gone its own way.

The Sian doesn't use batteries, but instead something called supercapacitors. Which, let's be honest, sound much cooler than batteries.

Chris Harris heads out on track with two noble aims.

One, to see if he can tame the most powerful Lamborghini of all time. Two, to see if he can understand what supercapacitors actually are, or indeed do.
