There have been talks about Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May visiting India late last year. Well, now you can see for yourself what that story was all about.

TopGear special, which will air on Wednesday, 1st February at 11:00pm will have the trio 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 our country, devotedly promoting Britain with distinctly mixed results... to put it mildly.

Their great Indian adventure starts in Mumbai where they give the local dabbawallas a hand at delivering lunch boxes. 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 TopGear India Hill Speed Climb Event. In Delhi, the boys host a gala with the who’s-who of town in attendance. 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.

Be sure to tune in on Wednesday 11:00pm, only on BBC Entertainment.
