Jeremy Clarkson has let slip what viewers can look forward to in terms of this year's Top Gear Christmas Special. As it turns out, James May, Richard Hammond and the curly-haired host are taking to India for filming this year. At this point, it's unclear exactly what the trio will get up to in the Asian country, but given that Clarkson hasn't had kind things to say about the area in the past, we're all but guaranteed some sort of multi-cultural dust up. Previously, Jezza has called the country's roads a "war zone." Clearly, he hasn't seen what passes for a network of streets in Detroit.

Last year, the Top Gear crew drew the ire of both Muslims and Christians after the trio were filmed wearing the traditional Muslim hijab and depicted the birth of Christ with a baby Stig in a manger. At least they're an equal opportunity offender. Head over the UK's WitneyTV to watch the full Clarkson interview talk about India, along with what stars he'd most like to see in the show's Reasonably Priced Car.

      Nice. I have been thinking India would be an awesome destination for some time and was waiting for TG to do a special there. I'm of Indian heritage and there is nothing more entertaining than a drive on some Indian city roads. The Vietnam episode came close, but India is definitely king.

      I've been to India here is somethings they can expect from India: Men/women wiping their ass on the street with their left hands( mostly in the morning), smell of poop everywhere, food look like poop, funny English Indian accents, horrible drivers, the honing every second of every god damn minutes, and hairy women.

        Do you really think all 1,210,193,422 Indians are acting like the way you discribe them to be?

        China and India may eventually have more money than the US, but it will be divided horribly unevenly over 5 times as many people, and India will still be a developing nation.

      I would like to see Jason Statham give it a go in the Reasonably Priced Car. Let's see what the Transporter really has.

        Umm Nope. While not bad, the US one will always be second rate, so long as the Big 3 (JC JM RH) are still in power across the pond.

      Well, I heard Chrismas is really nice in India.... But I guess this will be one of the least politically correct Top Gear ever and my advice to the BBC is to hire extras for dealing with complaints from the Little Island's Indian population :-)

      There's no comparison between Detroit and India in terms of roads and especially on in terms of the driving. Come on. See the BBC show "India on Wheels", there is a section about 2/3rds the way through that explains it well. For example, people will drive the wrong way on a divided highway and think nothing of it.

      I don't want TOp gear to go to India because white people will just make fun of Indians and nothing else. Instead they should come to America and make shows about what happened in Alabama....Nascar sucks, hiliary clinton for president, man lave is ok.
