On excitment-packed Top Gear, Jeremy meets something Australian that doesn't make him want to stick his head into a pit of angry snakes. James drove the best car ever. And Richard looked at the CoupÃ© Cabriolet's from Peugeot and Renault. Jeremy took to the mean streets to mingle with people called Kevin and find out why the CitroÃ«n Saxo was such a popular car. He also looked at the successor to the Saxo, the CitroÃ«n C2, which is set to be the new favourite of the boy racer. The good news is that the diesel C2 does a whopping 78 miles per gallon, which is beard-strokingly good. Sanjeev Bhaskar went for a spin in our low-cost Suzuki. The resident of No 42 was surprisingly nimble too, managing a lap time of 1.51. We sent James out to drive the Aston Martin Vantage. They got on famously, with the Aston proving once and for all that it truly is the king of the world. Then, in stark contrast to the civility of the Vantage, Jeremy took an Australian car, the Holden Monaro, out on the Top Gear test track. It's a 160mph supercar equipped with a 5.7 litre V8 engine taken out of a Corvette. It does 0-60 in 6.5 seconds, so it's quicker than an Australian making up excuses about poor sports performance.
