Middle East Special
In their biggest adventure yet (until next year’s DVD), Jeremy, Richard and James attempt to recreate the journey of the original Three Wise Men as they bumble their way across the Middle East towards Bethlehem.
But this high octane nativity play is fraught with danger and incompetence. Will they survive the hair raising landing in a Russian transport plane? Will they get out of Iraq in one piece? Will Jeremy’s bullet proof door actually stop bullets? Will their clapped out hairdressers’ convertibles survive the tortures of the Syrian deserts? Will James recover from his head injury? Will Mary and Joseph be happy with their gifts? Will they even find the right manger? The answers are yes, yes, no, sort of, sort of, no and no. But you’ll find that out for yourself in this extended length film.
•Exclusive audio commentary with James May and Crew
The USA and Albania Road Trips
In their not quite biggest adventures yet, the boys visit the good old US of A and former Eastern Bloc Albania for two action packed road trips. In America our trio, armed with the hottest new supercars - the Mercedes SLS, Ferrari 458 and the Porsche 911 GT3RS – head through NASCAR Country and enjoy a dancing Mayor, a Stig on a drive by shooting range, and the white knuckle Virginia Raceway, with their adventure climaxing in a race across New York.
But that’s nothing compared to Albania, where they are summoned by a MAFIA Boss to pick a winner from the new Rolls Royce Ghost, The Mercedes S Class, and the new Bentley Mulsanne (sort of). Keen to please, the boys embark on their most comprehensive test ever, including the Dead Fat Man in the Boot challenge, and a bank robbery to find the best getaway car. Will James be killed in the resulting car chase? The answer is yes. Definitely.

The Middle East. That's what they decided last Christmas for a Top Gear Special. The mere idea was shocking, and it just so turned out to be one of the best they've ever done. So for this year's Great Adventures box set, expect delightful Directors' Cuts of both the Middle East special, and the special challenge Road Trips to Albania and (again) America.
The trek across the Middle East doesn't quite match up to the greatness of the legendary Polar Special (the definitive edition of Top Gear), but it certainly is outstanding, and definitely the most controversial. Jezza and Hamster wearing burkas(!), Jeremy Clarkson realising he has the initials "J.C.", the lads following the path of the `Three Wise Men', the second coming, loaves and fishes, walking on water, giving presents to Joseph and Mary etc. But what can you expect? Boys will be boys, and to journey from Iraq to Bethlehem as `the Three Wise Men", they were obviously gonna incorporate the nativity, religion and the Middle Eastern culture into their humour!
But all the humour is innocent and harmless fun, really. And absolutely hilarious, which couple with the rest of the adventure's content, makes the Middle East Special one of the best Top Gear episodes ever. It immediately kicks off with a bang as the lads scream in a hair-raising landing in a Russian transport plane...with the cargo ramp OPEN! And from there you can again expect amazing discoveries, modifications to the cars, races and all kinds of happenings, like Richard's scary stop at customs, James' scary accident in the Syria desert, and Jeremy's attempt to make a bulletproof door.Read more ›
Middle East Special;
The presenters are challenged to re-enact the journey of the Three Wise Men by travelling from northern Iraq to a stable in Bethlehem, using second-hand two-seater convertibles bought for £3,500. As Israel will not allow cars registered in its surrounding neighbours to enter its borders, they must buy cars from Georgia before flying to their destination in an Ilyushin Il-76TD cargo plane. Jeremy buys a Mazda MX-5, Richard a Fiat Barchetta and James a BMW Z3. As in previous challenges, a spare car is provided to any presenter whose car breaks down. For this challenge, that car is an Opel Astra convertible - a car loathed by all three presenters.
After landing at Arbil International Airport in Iraqi Kurdistan, the three decide that it is too dangerous to drive directly to Bethlehem as it would involve travelling through the Mosul. Instead,they try and cross into Iran and then doubling back into Turkey and down into Syria to avoid the dangers of Iraq.
They have a number of incidents on the way, and Captain slow has a nasty bang on the head, but thankfully he is ok.
This is one of the better adventures and fitted well in with the Christmas period it was first shown (26 December 2010)
U.S. Road Trip;
The presenters head over to the US for a road trip. Jeremy brings a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, James a Ferrari 458 Italia, and Richard, predictably, a Porsche 997 GT3 RS.Read more ›
Featuring plenty of mad antics, recommendations for the mafia on what the best car is, a shocking fate for James May, revenge drive-by shooting on the Stig, among many more highlights and wonderful special features, this is a set no fan can do without!
