That's actually from Jeremy's individual Christmas-special DVDs.

This one is taken from Powered-Up, latest work from him. Released earlier on 7th of this month.

It must be all over the You-Tube by now, you can check for the entire length show there...

The guys were on a serious mission this time, they came here for business purposes. If that's the kind of business they do, we need more of it, every year

Here's the official word from Andy Wilman: Transmission – BBC Top Gear Andy Wilman on Top Gear’s India special: Wednesday 28 December, 8pm, BBC2

In link shared above by Shivank the image shows all three of them near ice capped mountains. Hope it was a Leh trip. That would be an epic.

Yes, it is indeed Leh my friend. Bhpians all across the country were closely following TG team's itinerary when they were here shooting.

It started from Mumbai to Jaipur to Delhi and till all the way up to Himalayas.

You bet it is going to be epic! Can't wait...

Thanks Scorcher. The clip/promo is not even put on TG's official yet. I am saying it like for the thousandth time but this is going to be one heck of a trip.

Loud horns + Haryana Roadways + Trucks + Dual carriageway. It's a thing of absolute terror for any driver in North India. And the clip starts with that scene only. Superb, they have understood Indian roads in a very short time.
