    Top Gear shooting supercars in Italy this weekend

    The boys were spotted in Lecce, Italy, yesterday (29th October) filming with a Lamborghini Aventador, a McLaren MP12-4C and a Noble M600 (driven by Jeremy, James and Richard respectively). According to the footage that has surfaced on YouTube, they subsequently went on to film at Nardo proving ground.

    That's a whole lot of red going on there. Maybe they were trying to make a point: In Italy, in three supercars, all of them red, none of them Ferraris...

    im surprised at them using the Noble, it isn't the supercar i would have instantly chosen for that film. but it will be good to see how it fairs against the others, and how it is to drive on normal roads. i can see Hammond driving it just because of his defensive look on supercars.

    Looks like they made it to Roma, but with a different M600 (look for more clips in the suggested videos):

    Italy + Three epic supercars = Double awesome.
    I hope it will be as nice as EV roadtrip they did on S17E06.

    I think it's a really good mix. The snarling Playboy, the Pentium Processor and the Garden Shed Lash Up. I think the Noble will be a big surprise as they are renowned for making cars that can both ride and handle. For relatively little money.

    I've never smoked in my life, but eating ice cream and smoking at the same time..... That must be gross!

    The guys are back in the UK by the way. Someone on Twitter mentioned being on the same flight as them earlier this evening.

    They all smoke. At least Richard did a while back. Not sure if he finally gave up but he certainly used to.

    He's given up a few times, but was definitely smoking during the filming of S17.

    I didn't spot it when I was there. James was chuffing away happily in the green room for certain.

    Now can we stop talking about smoking please? I only gave up 3 days ago.

    They actually brought a great selection of cars. The Noble is the fastest car (223mph), the McLaren is the most agile (round the TG track) and the Aventador is the best looking and fastest accelareting car. And I think it will be quite a Challenge for the McLaren becouse on the Top Gear test track the Aventador was right behind the Mp4, and lets not forget that the Mp4 was developed there, so I'm sure TG got a Car specificaly set up for that track. I think the Aventador will be the be
    st car after all, but then again they might say its the Noble and I will understand becouse its the most demanding car for the driver. Seriously I can't wait.

    Richard tends to stop for a while, then start up again.

    I think all three of them have tried to stop at least once. Ambitious but rubbish.

    Some pics from Rome that aren't here yet:
