Top Gear hosts take a convertible roadtrip through all four seasons

Cape Town - In episode 2 of  the new season of Top Gear Matt LeBlanc and Chris Harris embark on an all-season US road trip in the latest convertible supercars from Lamborghini and Porsche, journeying from broiling desert to snowy mountain. 

Convertible supercars: very glamorous, but only really suitable for those handful of days each year when the sun’s shining and air is balmy-warm. Not so, according to Matt and Chris, who reckon the modern crop of convertible supercars make magnificent company, whatever the weather.

So, armed with the very fast Lamborghini Huracan Spyder and Porsche 911 Turbo convertible, the pair head to Las Vegas, the starting point for a road trip that would encompass four seasons of challenges – and climate – in just two days. 

Back at the test track, Rory Reid sets the toughest of driving challenges for Chris and the Alfa Romeo Giulia, while actor Davis Tennant takes a spin in the new Reasonably Fast Car.
