Power TestEdit

Jeremy hit the track in the Mercedes SLS Black and it's electricity-powered cousin the Mercedes SLS Electric Drive. While Jeremy was impressed by Electric Drive it's cost and impracticality meant he concluded that overall the Black was the best car to buy. The SLS Black was also faster around the Top Gear test track than the Electric Drive.


Hugh Jackman drove the Vauxhall Astra around the track in 1:46.1, the third fastest at the time.


Noticing that flooding is a common disaster the presenters once again attempt to create the ultimate amphibious vehicle, having already tried in series 10 and 8, by converting a van into a hovercraft. After an initial failure the presenters recreated their Hovervan  and tested their improved creation on the River Avon.

The NewsEdit

Perhaps the shortest news segment ever featured on the show.
