wait, if you search for patagonia you get two live options, one I'm assuming is SD, one 720p

SD: http://kickass.so/top-gear-special-patagonia-part-1-hdtv-x264-fov-vtv-t10010978.html

720p: http://kickass.so/top-gear-2014-special-patagonia-part-one-720p-hdtv-x264-fov-t10010963.html

There was one shot of the Mustang where it clearly had a skidplate attached under the motor, so yeah, they were definitely prepped a bit.

I wouldn't expect a 40+ year old car using even older tech to survive Patagonia, and the 928 electronics taking a shit is expected, but there is some going on with the Lotus to fit with their narrative of it being the "most unreliable" before they started out..

Yeah, I know that's the way this show goes...the Lotus will probably have a "catastrophic failure" near the end while Hammond and Clarkson cruise to the finish.

Not gonna rewatch but did they say anything about "oh we had $x.xx" to spend on these cars? Were there any specific limiting parameters like that?

They didn't say anything in the actual episode about cost. I imagine Esprit V8s have to bring at least like 10 or 12k...

Good.

I prefer that they have more freedom to select higher buck cars... They've chosen ones which are hugely failure-prone, that'll make for better tv.

Bolivia special... I mean... OF COURSE a $4000 70 billion mile FJ from south american craigslist purchased sight unseen is going to be shitty and awful... How could it not be...
