Teams must fly to Turin, Italy. Upon arrival, teams must choose a Ford Focus and drive themselves to Lingotto, where they will find their next clue.

The Fast Forward instructions were given to them after receiving their clue at Lingotto.

One team member would have to pilot a remote controlled helicopter and land it on a replica of the Lingotto building's helipad placed on a helmet worn by their teammate. Once the helicopter has landed, that team would win the Fast Forward. Art & JJ won the Fast Forward.

The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to rappel down the spiral ramps of the Lingotto building within a time limit of two minutes, stopping to retrieve a clue on the way down. If time expires, the team member would have to start all over.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Museo Nazionale dell'Automobile and use the active car park on the Focus to park their car. Once finished, teams must head inside the museum and search for the 1916 Tin Lizzie to find their next clue.

Teams must figure out the building on the 2 cent euro coin is the Mole Antonelliana. Once there, teams must ride the elevator to the top, where they find their next clue.

Choice A: Clean That Statue
Teams would have to go to L'Arte Marmi and use the provided equipment to completely and properly clean a marble statue. Once it is back in pristine condition, they will receive their next clue.

Bopper & Mark, Joey & Danny, Nary & Jamie, Rachel & Dave, and Vanessa & Ralph chose this task.

Choice B: Taste That Salami
Teams would have to go to the Gastronomia Salumeria to taste and memorize the names of fourteen different kinds of salami: piccante, cacciatorino, tartufo, mucca, toscano, 'nduja, aglio, cotto, cinghiale, finocchiona, felino, noci, barolo, and mandola. They then have to travel to the Piazza Vittorio Veneto and find the designated salami vendor to correctly identify and name all fourteen types of salamis they tasted. Once they get all 14 correct, the salumiere would give them their next clue.

Brendon & Rachel and Kerri & Stacy chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Piazza Castello to check in.

For coming in first place, Art & JJ each won $5,000.

For coming in last place, Bopper & Mark will have to perform a Speed Bump at some point during the next leg of the race.
