Top Gear America - Find something that offers more luxury than the Orient Express - Netflix
Series Twenty-Three, Episode Four Evans, Sabine and Matt were given a maximum budget of £3,066 - the price of an Orient Express ticket - to buy something equally luxurious, while Eddie boarded the Orient Express itself. Evans opted for a 2002 Jaguar XJ8 which set him back £2,100, Sabine bought a 2002 Audi A8 for £2,750, while Matt bought a 1989 Honda Goldwing for £2,500. The presenters raced against each other with Eddie boarding the Orient Express from London to Venice. On the way, Matt, Evans and Sabine were presented with a challenge: pick a Michelin star chef in Paris and allow them to prepare food to be presented at a chateau along the way. Evans and Sabine found the challenge to be a relatively easy one, since their cars' cabin space allow the chef to prepare the food and the heat from their cars' engine (and from the exhaust pipes in Evans' case) allowed the food to be cooked along the way. Matt, however, had to make several stops to allow his chef to prepare and cook the food, slowing down his progress. Sabine was declared winner of this challenge. During the next leg, Matt was hindered by his motorcycle's small fuel tank, and Sabine ran out of money, forcing her to reach the destination on foot. Evans on the other hand had enough money left from his purchase to hire a water taxi until Venice's water speed limit hindered him. Eddie made it first to the finish, joined by Sabine, and soon after Evans. Matt was still on the road, but he believed himself to be in the lead. Once back in the studio Evans, Sabine and Matt pointed out that they still had their vehicles (although Matt decided to sell his Goldwing,) while all Eddie had as a souvenir was a pair of spoons from the train. Winner: Eddie
