The Top Gear Season 16 Episode 1 called the ‘Three Wise Men’ has made its way up on YouTube, so be sure to follow the jump and watch the video as fast as you can, as it can disappear in any second.
In the Three Wise Men Christmas Special we have Clarkson, Hammond and May embarking on a seasonal road trip across the Middle East, which tries to reproduce the same path as the actual Three Wise Men from the Bible took.
We also have a series of photos with the three cars that have been used in the Top Gear Season 16 Episode 1, which are a malfunctioning BMW Z3 for James May, A Fiat Barchetta missing its ‘buttock’ for Richard Hammond and a Mazda MX5 fitted with the ‘axle of evil’ for Jeremy Clarkson.
Beaulieu press release :
Fans of Top Gear can now see three new cars from The Three Wise Men
Christmas Special, in the World of Top Gear exhibition at Beaulieu.
For the 2010 Top Gear Christmas Special, the show’s producers sent
presenters Jeremy, Richard and James on their most dangerous challenge
to date; following the path of the three wise men, starting – rather
worryingly – in Iraq and finishing some 1200 miles later, in Bethlehem.
It was a journey of remarkable scenery, fascinating culture and a
reasonable amount of massive scariness. It also did some terrible things
to Richard Hammond’s bottom.
Jeremy Clarkson’s car of choice for this epic journey was a Mazda
MX5. Special features include a unique ‘car of many colours’ paint job,
evidence that the car was once fitted with an ‘axle of evil’ and holes
in the bodywork left behind by Clarkson’s rubbish ‘bulletproofing’ plan.
Don’t bother looking for the hookah pipe though – that fell off. If
this car was running you might be able to hear if it was spluttering on
three cylinders again. But it isn’t so you can’t.
James May’s malfunctioning BMW Z3 had a cunning camouflage paint
scheme, inspired by the work of the Africa Corps and the Luftwaffe. This
car does not contain the frankincense James bought in Bethlehem but if
you’d like to recreate that particular gift simply steal a small bottle
of shampoo from a hotel. 
Richard Hammond was pleasantly surprised by the reliability of his
Fiat Barchetta although the missing ‘buttock’ didn’t make for
comfortable driving. Note the bits of actual desert carefully applied to
the front of the car by smearing it in glue and then throwing sand at
it, and the remnants of the Bedouin tent to the rear of the vehicle.
“We like to keep the exhibition as up to date as we possibly can and
what could be better than for fans to see the show on TV and then the
cars just a few days later,” said Stephen Munn, Commercial Director at
the National Motor Museum.
World of Top Gear features a collection of cars created by the
presenters for some of their most ambitious challenges on the TV show
over the years. Exhibition highlights include the Top Gear ‘Enormodrome’
which recreates the feel of the Top Gear studio, where the TV show is
filmed in front of a live audience.
Regular features from the programme including the Cool Wall and the
Celebrity ‘Lap Times’ boards are kept up to date in line with the show. 
Visitors can also watch behind-the-scenes footage of the T G production
zone and clips of some of the best Top Gear moments.
