It'll be his. The Esprit will be James May's and the fat one the Hamster's. Let's just hope that they got one without too much deferred maintenance.

Esprit will be a tight fit for May , but not RH. But RH might have trouble reaching the pedals in the Mustang.
As long as the alternator isn't ripped off by the first rock, the shark stands a fair chance.

My pick is
Hammond in the Mach 1 as he loves American muscle.
Clarkson in the Esprit as he's biased to either English cars, Ferarri's or Mercedes
May in the 928 as he's the educated connoisseur, has some taste.

This would be good. However, Clarkson has a history of driving (and liking) 928's.

Looks to be a 1990 GT from the number plate.. so I'm expecting PSD/ABS warnings

All three of those cars seem to nice for their typical car tests.

The 928 GT does have some junk in the trunk though.

Update:
Top Gear at Tierra del Fuego
Looks cold filming there. At least the 928 generates cabin heat fast.
And headlights are up on the 928. So the circlip holding headlight actuator arm is good and there is no hole in the radiator.

Wonder how hard Clarkson is going to throw the 928 under the bus. Should be entertaining, at least.

I just saw the pictures and they cut up the back of the 928 to make a pick up out of it.
