Wreaking havoc on the tranquil streets of Edinburgh, smashing classic cars into each other on a flimsy floating bridge, and royally compromising a caravan... well, those were all accidental. 

And if all that wasn't enough, the trio even find time to stage a Cold War shootout between some of the worst Soviet and American cars of all time.
