There is a Top Gear 'Bond Special' that is going to be aired on BBC tonight at 9pm(British Time)

Richard is going to be driving some of the iconic bond cars and a amphibious lotus built by TG!! Not a typical Top Gear episode, but I am certainly not complaining!!!

Seems it is not for India :-(. Tata Sky does list this in program list for any of BBC channels.

Saw the Bond special last night. Was the invisible van also featured earlier in TG? I am not able to put a finger down on episode/season, but I have a feeling, I have seen this before!

Come to think of it, these were some of the most impractical cars and it would have been immensely more enjoyable if the world's most impractical man were to host it.

Invisible ? I havent watched the Bond special yet. But, an invisible car was shown in the "Topgear at the Movies(2011)" by Captain Slow. Is it that one you mean ? The one with cameras on the other side .

It was a Ford Transit with Plasmas and Cameras on its sides. The image from the left camera was shown on the right side panel and vice-versa.

You mean Ford transit was shown in Bond special or ?
As far as i could remember, in the 'Topgear at Movies' , it was a car rather than a van.

Yes, Ford Transit was there in the Bond special. If it was a car, then I guess we are talking about different ones here. Let me try to dig a little and see if there was anything of this sort earlier or I am mistaken.
