Plot Synopsis

In TOP GEAR: AMBITIOUS BUT RUBBISH, Richard Hammond presents unforgettable moments from the TOP GEAR archive, guiding viewers through eight episodes that highlight stunts, challenges and outrageous moments from past episodes, while featuring the ineptitude of all three TOP GEAR hosts. The premiere episode includes the creation of the world's first convertible minivan, James May attempting to drive up an Icelandic volcano with an unpronounceable name, and the boys having a go at building some budget police cars. Subsequent episodes feature these highights: an attempt to cross the English Channel in homemade amphibious cars; building off-road mobility scooters; an attempt to find the best bus for London's streets; building a caravan airship; creating a dual-purpose combine harvester-based snow plow; building the world's first hovercraft van; attempting to solve the thorny issue of CO2 emissions from cars; having a go at launching a Reliant Robin into space; and many more disastrous projects and inept moments.
