Episode 2 of 7

Motoring show. Jeremy, Richard and James build an electric car, the Corvette ZR1 goes up against the Audi R8 V10, and actor Michael Sheen is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.

Jeremy, Richard and James attempt to save the planet by building their own electric car and then put their latest 'green' creation through the rigours of the new car testing process.

Meanwhile on the track, it is the battle of the continents as Europe takes on the USA and Jeremy pits the Corvette ZR1's muscle against the finesse of Audi's R8 V10.

The Star in a Reasonably Priced Car is Frost/Nixon and The Damned United star Michael Sheen.
