    The fellas over at Top Gear have been to just about every nook and cranny in Great Britain and criss-crossed continental Europe in all manner of train, plane and automobile. They've driven to the North Pole, scaled an active volcano, crossed the Sahara and traversed South America. They've driven through Vietnam, Dubai, Japan, the southern United States... nearly everywhere we can think of, really. Except Israel. But now they can cross the Holy Land off their collective bucket list as reports and photos come in from the tiny Eastern Mediterranean country showing Clarkson, Hammond and May taking in the desert sun.

    Apparently filming a new episode in their epic series of cross-country adventures, the Top Gear crew was spotted crossing westward over the border between Jordan and Israel in a dingy trio of roadsters: Richard in a Fiat Barchetta, James in a BMW Z3 and Jeremy in a Mazda MX-5, complete with retrofitted hookah. (Just for tobacco, of course.) The cars appear to be accompanied by a convoy of support vehicles for the production and camera crews, and undoubtedly had to jump through a lot of hoops to get there as the border is typically open only for foot traffic.

    We'll be ordering up some fallafels and tuning in to Arutz Shtayim just as soon as we know when the episode will air to see how James, Richard and Yirmiyahu manage to get themselves out from in between the Dome of the Rock and a hard place. In the meantime, check out the spy shots (courtesy of forum member Dark-Shadow) in the gallery below and the (translated) report from our friends over at Walla! Cars for a closer look at how the blokes are single-handedly re-instituting the British Mandate. Ashrecha for the tip, Nat

    FinalGear.com say Top Gear returns January 23rd With At Least 1 Special In December

    There will be a filming on December 15th for a special, but it is unknown when it will air. Since they don’t usually do news segments for specials, it’s completely possible the special won’t air until later rather than that weekend. I’ve heard rumors of there being two specials around Christmas time.

    Looks like were going to be in for some Top Gear action very soon :D

    YAY at last another special! Hope it lives up to the Vietnam one (my favourite of all the specials they've done so far). Last series felt a little lacklustre to me, they obviously had their budget cut so there weren't as many stunts and what not but my hopes are high for this :D
