Spied – Top Gear filming in New Delhi; Spirit of Ecstasy gets Ganesha’s blessing!
If you’re not avidly following every step the Top Gear UK team is taking in India we must inform you that the trio, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May with their camera crew have covered Mumbai-Jaipur and arrived in the capital, New Delhi a few days ago!
IAB captures them beautifully for you.
The trio is driving an old (but oh-so-beautiful) Jaguar, an old Mini Cooper and an old Rolls Royce. This indicates that the Christmas special will have a vintage touch in relation with India.
On the funny side, which is so obvious with Top Gear, we see the cars carrying musical instruments over them and a lot of Indianization like flower garlands, clay elephants, tricolor stickers and amazingly the Spirit of Ecstasy on the Rolls Royce has been replaced by an idol of Lord Ganesha!
Along with the 3 cars we also spotted an old Austin Allegro 1300 Super. Mark it as this could just be some sort of surprise on the show!
