Top Gear's India Special to premier on 1st February

In this year’s Top Gear special, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May set out to boost the British economy by embarking on a trade mission to India. Equipped with classic British cars- a Rolls Royce, Mini Cooper and a Jaguar, they set off on an epic road trip across one of the world’s most fascinating and challenging countries, devotedly promoting Britain with distinctly mixed results.

Their great Indian adventure starts in Mumbai where they give the local dabbawallas a hand at delivering lunch boxes. Will Mumbai traffic get the best of them? The verdict lies in the hands of the dabbawallas. Next stop is Jaipur, where the boys host a rally to test the mettle of Indian vehicles against their British wares.

From a tuk-tuk or auto-rickshaw, to a Nano, an elephant and even the local policemen, the Jaipur dash has a array of racers all set to win the inaugural Top Gear India Hill Speed Climb Event. In Delhi, the boys host a gala with the who’s-who of town in attendance. In typical Top Gear fashion, nothing goes as per plan! With their trade mission going downhill, the boys head uphill to the mountains of Shimla. Will the boys finally get lucky and accomplish what they’ve set out to do? A game of ‘Straight Six Cricket’, a reinvention of cricket by Jeremy, might do the trick!

The world’s biggest car show comes to India for the first time, and you can catch all the action first and exclusively on BBC Entertainment.
