"Fastest car in the world" vs Yacht - New Zealand Race - Top Gear - Series 20 - BBC
Jeremy and James head to New Zealand to take part in a race from the Coromandel Peninsula to the northern tip of the North Island. James had to cover 220 miles (350 km) in the America's Cup yacht Oracle, whilst Jeremy had a much longer 410 miles (660 km). The Oracle's crew was made up of James, Olympic gold medallist Sir Ben Ainslie and several America's Cup winners. Jeremy's Auris is a rental, thus "the fastest car in the world", and he has little regard for its safety... Taken from Episode 1, Series 20.
