Power Test Edit
Richard Hammond heads to the test track for a review of Lamborghini's Gallardo replacement - the Huracán - to see if it lives up to the exceptional reputation of its predecessor. The Huracan placed fifth on the Top Gear power time leaderboard, clocking in at 1:15.8.
Ed Sheeran was the first celebrity in series twenty-two to take on the Kia Cee'd and the Top Gear test track, posting a lap time of 1:54.3 using automatic transmission, the second slowest.
The presenters travel to Saint Petersburg to recreate their race across London from series ten. James raced in the space-age Renault Twizy, Hammond on a race bicycle, Clarkson on a professionally built hovercraft, and the Stig took advantage of Russia's public transport system.
