The hosts of Top Gear have grown into veritable celebrities not just in their native UK, but around the world. So good luck showing up in any country without being seen these days, fellas. After spy shots tipped us off to Clarkson, Hammond and May's presence in Israel a few months ago, we now have visual confirmation that the boys have been to Albania.

The news comes courtesy of Albarent, a local car rental agency that apparently picked up them and their crew at Tirana Airport (Albania's only internantional airport) and drove them south to Saranda on the "Albanian Riviera" in a rental fleet that reportedly included a Mercedes-Benz S350 and a pair of minibuses made by Hyundai and Fiat's Irisbus/Iveco.

We can only imagine what sort of shenannigans took place during TG's time in Albania, but we'll no doubt see the end result during an upcoming episode of the show. Thanks for the tip, Memli!

      James May was in a Rolls Royce Ghost and Jeremy in a S65. They apparently had a race with the Albanian Police in their Chevrolet Aveo. I think it will be a very funny episode

        Dude in Saranda they have some of the best beaches
        it's paradise there, and I highly doubt it they went there for the show..more like a nice relaxing vacation in a place where

      Can't wait for that episode. I wonder if there will be references to Enver Hoxha, and Radio Tirana (the most unintentionally hilarious of the old Eastern Bloc radio stations)?

        I think it's an improvement over the pink and purple jumper he seems to love so much.

      Will Top Gear America be going to different countries like Top Gear UK or is it gonna be U.S only like 90% of American shows?
