- The boys buy interesting used cars for Dacia Sandero money and face a series of challenges
- Star in a Reasonably Fast Car: Matt Baker
The cheapest new car you can buy in the UK is the Dacia Sandero. It costs a very reasonable six thousand pounds, and is indubitably a very reasonable car. But, reckoned our presenters, for that sort of money, you can have something with so much more character. So, each armed with a Sandero-sized amount of money, Matt, Chris and Rory each set out to buy a car of genuinely aristocratic bearing. Something from the likes of Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Mercedes-Benz.
Purchases secured – purchases that, in some instances, even moved under their own steam for a distance of several metres – our presenters were told to report to the Top Gear test track for a series of challenges. Against the Sandero. Driven by The Stig. Who, it’s fair to say, isn’t a great fan of budget Romanian hatchbacks. And, as if that wasn’t enough to kill their ‘classics’ once and for all, there was then the small matter of a six-hour endurance race at Silverstone.
Episode 4’s Star in a Reasonably Fast Car is Matt Baker.
