Crossing the channel in a battered pick-up truck. Cruising the streets in a convertible people-carrier. Firing up a snowbine harvester to clear a runway for a plane to (crash) land. Just some of the examples of engineering prowess displayed by the Top Gear team as they push the boundaries of what's possible with three blokes, a garage and an otherwise quiet afternoon.

In this celebration of the many weird, wonderful and frequently disastrous creations to emerge from the Top Gear garage, we finally offer these vehicles the thorough examinations they deserve. Discover the finer points of constructing a three-storey modernist motorhome; learn exactly how not to build a home-made electric car; and marvel at the hidden complexities of strapping a blimp to a caravan and seeing what happens.

With an unflinching analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of each vehicle, Ambitious but Rubbish is an indispensable guide to a plethora of useless motoring creations, and a frankly terrifying glimpse into the minds of Clarkson, Hammond and May.
