Back in the UK, James May pays a rare visit to the Eboladrome to try the Alpine A110, a French sports car that hopes to succeed where most French sports car fail by getting more than two people to buy it.

Based on an all-aluminium construction, the A110 is powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged direct injection four-cylinder engine mated to 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission. Developed by Renault-Nissan and reworked by Alpine engineers, the engine has an output of 249 bhp (185 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque.

Also in this episode, Richard Hammond profiles Scottish racing driver Jim Clark – a quiet and modest man whose achievements on track made him arguably the greatest of all time, before his life was tragically cut short.

The A110 that James tested was James’ own car.He bought one as the car of year to himself

When Jeremy called the montage for the best of season three, I didn’t knew exatly about what the classic Lotus F1 car would fit in, but I were already interested. I thought that it would be the story of Lotus at the first place, but his story is as interesting as well. I’m really enjoying that bit of automotive story that the boys have been placing in the series and I thought that as May and Clarkson already did their parts, Hammond would do something Nascar-ish… Looking foward to this one!

The DeTomaso is likely to be involved in a classic TG style road trip of the new Citroen C3 Aircross by Clarkson.
