The new season/series of Top Gear continues this weekend on BBC America, and this time, Matt LeBlanc and Chris Harris are waging an epic race across the Arabian peninsula. For LeBlanc, money is no object in this race. And he can use almost any travel method that he likes, from a luxury car to a private jet, a motor boat, or even another high performance vehicle. But we can’t count Harris out of this race, because he’s got the new Bugatti Chiron, a $2.5 million car that has fifteen-hundred horse power under the hood. Do you think you know speed? Harris is about to get an intense demonstration of just how fast the Bugatti Chiron is compared to its predecessor, the Veyron.
In CraveOnline’s preview from the fourth episode of Top Gear series 24, Harris tests out the capabilities of the Bugatti Chiron on a long stretch of runway. And by the time it’s over, even Harris can’t believe how quickly this car can pick up momentum.
At the Al Maktown International Airport in Dubai, Chris Harris and the $2.5m fifteen-hundred horse powered Bugatti Chiron attempt to cross the Arabian peninsula faster than Matt LeBlanc and a roster of money-no-object transport solutions. Back in Britain, Rory Reid constructs a life-size arcade game to test the Renault Twingo GT and its city car rivals, while rap star Tinie Tempah tackles the Top Gear track in the Toyota GT86.
Top Gear Series 24 episode 4 will make its North American debut on Sunday, April 2 at 8pm on BBC America.
