The tent is on the quayside of Whitby harbour. Jeremy Clarkson and James May plan to undertake a Grand Tour across Italy, driving an Aston Martin DB11 and a Rolls-Royce Dawn respectively. Their plans are interrupted by Richard Hammond arriving uninvited in a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. The tour starts at the Palio di Siena, passing through the Piazza dei Signori, Vicenza and ending up in the Venetian Lagoon. However, the scenic cultural tour is constantly interrupted by Hammond's loud Hellcat, his constant need to refuel, and his insistence on performing donuts whenever possible.
Jeremy Clarkson presents his take on automated vehicles, designing a car that can be controlled by speaking into a phone. In reality, the vehicle is controlled by a Romanian on a bike, as Clarkson dislikes the idea that automation would rob people of jobs.
Hammond and May destroy Clarkson's house at Diddly Squat Farm in Chadlington, Oxfordshire. However, first they have to remove the roof by hand to give a bat who lives there the chance to leave. They then teat down part of the house will mechanical wrecking machines, before blowing it up.
