Can you be specific on which? Was it during SIARPC section? I have all the S17 episodes and didn't notice such a statement. If I'd be more specific, I saw only two instances this season on TG which had something to do with India, in the Nissan Pixo drive and a panning shot of the Indian Empress (Mallya'a yacht). I've always wanted Jezza, along with the homeboys to do an India Special. Not like the old, driving test video, but a proper one!

Can't exactly remember, my memory has gone pretty bad and I've watched 3 episodes at a time that day. Will watch it again and let you know. Now I just hope that I was not actually dreaming

Clarkson mentions coming to India for a special episode in this interview: Jeremy Clarkson WitneyTV Exclusive 2011

A cheap car challenge in India would be epic.

Thanks for sharing this awesome news!

What could be the usual suspects? Nano, other Tatas, Mahindras, Buddh track, GQ drive?

I so can't wait!

The best one for me was Episode 4 ...where they build trains .JC comes up with a sports train powered by a Jaguar while the other 2 come up with a train having 3 bogies ( first class,pantry and a Scum Class)...this train has an Audi as its engine

Finished watching Jezza clarkson's: Powered up. Nice Team Lotus Formula 1 reserve driver Karun Chandhok taking on Clarkson's challenges around the Paul Ricard circuit in the south of France as he tests skyline GT-R, Lambo, Jetta and Porsche on which car can go the fastest round a corner and which is the best small, fastest hatchback around a track.

^^ Undeniably, one of the best works from Jeremy.

I thoroughly missed exploding cars and usual nonsense that Jeremy does on his shows though!!

This DVD is a pure no-nonsense car programme. Serious enthusiasts might like it. Thriller was also a bit on the same platform. Test-track and testing cars.

Of the recent ones, I absolutely loved Duel. Best so far, since 2005.
