Top Gear is aiming to sign off the current series in style, with an exotic trip to Monaco where Rory Reid and Matt LeBlanc attempt to turn the 'world's ugliest car' into a luxury yacht.

And it seems even Chris Harris has been won over by the transformed SsangYong Rodius hybrid.

A new clip shows Chris take the yacht for a drive on the seas, with Rory next to him as a passenger, and he is surprisingly complimentary about it.

"I have to say that it is much better than I expected," he said. "And it is better to drive than the SsangYong Rodius.

"And I will begrudgingly concede that it's not utter crap."

That's a massive win for Rory and Matt, then.

Eddie Jordan will also be back for the yacht feature, while in the remainder of the show, Matt drives an eight-wheeled rescue vehicle, and Chris reviews the new Porsche Cayman.

This week's studio guest is none other than Jamiroquai's Jay Kay.

Long-time fans will know that Jay Kay topped the Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car leaderboard back when the car of choice was the Chevrolet Lacetti.

He'll be aiming to knock Chris Hoy off top spot in the Toyota GT86.

Top Gear airs Sunday at 8pm on BBC Two.
