The three have been tasked by the production to find the stig who have been lost somewhere in Japan.
The non automotive bits have a lot of " Lost in translation "vibes in it , and the three wander in Japan acting generally lick dicks.
For the auto part , they were given 5000? each for buying a roadster : so they get a MX5 for Le Tone , a MG F for Lellouche and a BMW Z4 for Bruce.
The first challenge was to drive from Tokyo to the mount Fuji and the second was from the moun Fuji to the pass of Iroha Zaka , an alpine like road which was the pretext for a race won by the BMW Z4.
The first episode is about destroying "indestructibles" cars:
Each member was assigned a car famous for their longevity :
a peugeot 504
a lada niva
and a volvo break
After trying to put 3 tonnes of weight on the roof ,pushed them from a cliff or buried them in the sand , the three cars were running so a race was done with the oil purged from the cars , soon the lada and the volvo stopped in a cloud of smoke meanwhile the 504 still works.
The 504 was crushed and put on fire and like the top gear episode of the toyota hilux , the car was shown on stage and an attempt to restart the engine was successful .
The news section was about Bruce jouanny ranting about the new Porsche carerra S which was given a turbo and of course as a purist he preferred the 911 R with no turbo and a manual gear box .
The lap track was done with the 911 turbo S which top the leaderboard beating the Radical.
The guest were two actors : Bruno Putzulu and Tcheky Kario who know how to entertain a public.
