          James mentioned on the Christian O'Connell show today that they are off to India soon to film the Christmas special. Could be next week already!

            It's going to be epic. Probably the most epic Top Gear special ever.

              Yes! Finally the TG crew goes to India. Clarkson in an Ambassador, May in a Tata Nano or some cheapo commuter vehicle...and Hammond in a Mahindra Jeep or some old school Indian 4x4...that will be an epic show

                    You mean the Hindustan Ambassador, Which was/is a basically a rebadged Morris Oxford. Some of them came with a BMC B series diesel engine which only had about 35bhp, They later switched to a 2000cc Izuzu diesel, Which was still underpowered(50bhp). The best Ambassador would be the 1800cc Izuzu petrol engined version, Which has 75bhp!

                    The other british car that was popular here was the Triumph/Standard Herald, But they are quite rare now.

                      One of them should drive Standard 2000! And doors going to fall off again ...

                        I wouldn't be so sure that they actually buy the cars from India... if they do I hope they get some old Rover Montego diesel and other boxy rubbish like that which helps enjoyment of the climate to the fullest )
                        I need more horsepower.

                          I do hope they buy Indian cars. Will be more fun to watch them rant about them.
                          Apart from the Ambassador, other popular car from 70s to 90s was the Fiat 1100D which are inexpensive, but under powered. I hope one of them gets it. Might be Hammond coz it resembles his Oliver. Another luxury car of those period was the Hindustan Motors Contessa based on Vauxhall Victor VX

                            If the car that inspired the CityRover is still around (Tata Indycar (?)), it should be the punishment car.

The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold onto it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.” ?

                              I'm kind of hoping for a 'guest appearance' from everyone's favourite plastic deathtrap, the Reva G-Wiz...

                                I hope they make a quick stop by Royal Enfield, since the company was originally British, and since they are still making very similar motorcycles to what were made 50 years ago.

                                  Maybe -- if a terrified, trouser-wetting, soprano-screaming Clarkson is worth recording on British television.

                                  Now c'mon. You *know* Clarkson's attitude on motorcycles. The other two might go for it (a Royal Enfield Military Classic would suit May down to his historical leather rompers) but motorbikes aren't going to be a TGUK focus any time soon.

                                    Maybe you could explain why you thought that I wanted them to ride the motorcycles instead of stop by the factory? Was that because you know the inner workings of my mind? I suspect that you don't, and that I should be insulted.

                                      There are always parts of specials where two of them get a bit of time together away from the third person. James and Richard going to the Royal Enfield factory could be something they do together while Jeremy does something else.

                                        There are?

                                        Well, there was last year, but it was a bit of an accident!
