Just a few more days until Top Gear’s Christmas special airs. It’s a big favourite for any car fan – and especially TG fans.

The Top Gear Christmas special airs in two parts. The first half of the episode airs Saturday December 27 at night at 8:30 p.m. The second half airs Sunday December 28 at 8 p.m.

Top Gear released a video trailer of the special, and it looks as epic as any TG special would.

In this episode, James May, Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson attempt to drive three older sports cars on an epic 1,600-mile trek through Patagonia to the most southern city in the world.

Anyways, watch the Top Gear Patagonia Christmas special trailer here:

Where is Patagonia? It is a region at the southernmost tip of the Americas, shared between Chile and Argentina.

Already, Top Gear was in trouble because of a controversial license plate on a car which pissed of some locals. The plate, H982 FKL, beckons back to the Falklands war.

According to the show’s executive producer Andy Wilman, the number plates were coincidentally offensive and the production team never planned to have it that way.
