Latest Top Gear cars on display

The World of Top Gear exhibition at Beaulieu is showcasing the three cars from the Christmas special adventure.

Presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May were sent on their most dangerous mission to date for the special edition of the popular car show.

The adventurers were dispatched to Iraq in roadsters to follow the path of the three wise men. They ended their journey in Bethlehem.

Stephen Munn, commercial director at the National Motor Museum, said: "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."

World of Top Gear flaunts a number of vehicles used by the three presenters on the BBC show. The exhibition features the Top Gear 'Enormodrome' which replicates the feel of the Top Gear studio.

The event also highlights the Cool Wall and the Celebrity 'Lap Times' boards, while visitors can also enjoy behind-the-scenes footage of the TG production zone as well as videos of the best Top Gear moments.
