Episode 3 will feature Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond finding second-hand bargains for the price of Britain’s cheapest brand new car, the Nissan Pixo. James May will test the Range Rover Evoque and chauffeur a megastar through Las Vegas. Other cars to be reviewed are the McLaren MP4-12C, and its rival Ferrari 458.
