The presenters head to Spain for a road trip in three "budget" convertible sports cars in order to reflect the countries poor economic situation. Along their journey the presenters saw just how devastating the global financial crisis has been on Spain; they saw ghost towns, empty motorways, unused airports, and roads to nowhere. Through various tests the presenters found the Audi R8 Spyder to be the best "budget" supercar however, despite this, the presenters unanimously agreed that the Ferrari 458 Spyder was better.
Because of the three-part Spanish supercar film, there was no power test in this episode.
