Best Top Gear Specials


The Top Ten

1 Africa Special

This was like the best special yet. I mean playing Toto Africa on that same continent describes the land a lot and the way some of the shots are shown with the 3 cars moving near the cameraman feels like a 70s exploration movie.

Absolutely hilarious two-part episode! Best special, no, best episode yet! - PositronWildhawk

This is the episode that made me realise that I desperately wanted a Subaru impreza

Pure brilliance

2 Bolivia Bolivia Bolivia, officially known as the Plurinational State of Bolivia, is located in western-central South America.

Death Road made my heart skip a few beats especially when Clarkson had to go around that guy by the waterfall and when James had to use torches to see where he was going. The funniest parts were Jeremy sinking, Hammonds fear of insects and when his Donkey died - Danielsun182

They actually acted as a team and were quite suprised themselves because of it. The high altitude mountains brought the team spirit up... not to mention James' "Please don't leave me" to Hammond while on the Death Road

It is more tense compared to all the others

Probably one of the best specials alongside Botswana and maybe Patagonia

3 Vietnam

Watching Jeremy suffer for a whole hour while riding a terrible scooter was one of the funniest moments not only for the viewers but also the other two who love bikes - Danielsun182

Loved it was would say that this and the Africa special are in the same league. Always loved Top Gear, never gets old- hope the new series can fill some big shoes.

4 Botswana

Botswana gave Hammond his favorite special car of them all, Oliver - Danielsun182

This is in my opinion the best episode as I think it, s so funny the way that richard hammond forms such an attachment to his little friend oliver all the while the others were laughing at him.

This is clearly the best one!
"Oliver" and crossing the salt lake was legendary

5 Middle East Special

The episode we were introduced to the new Stig in one of the funniest ways I can imagine - Danielsun182

One of the most interesting specials.The final bit with the presents especially.


The best part was when Jeremy removed the cow from his Camaro - Danielsun182

The best part is when they are buying their cars and Clarkson encounters the "Persion" with the guns so funny!

I really enjoy watch the programme and ther r lots more to come

7 North Pole

Another episode where Top Gear pushing motoring onto another new level when Clarkson and May were the first to drive to the Pole - Danielsun182

What was that plane that May and Clarkson found

My favorite part was when Hammond riped apart his front end of his Mini with the winch - Danielsun182

A lot of people say this isn't good. I literally don't get that! - PositronWildhawk

Easily the best one, so funny

Sooo funny

The Contenders

11 Top Gear UK Winter Olympics
12 Australia Special

The last topgear special, and one of the most exciting, 3 amazing cars, the m5, continental gt and a Gtr, raging across australia while they eat BLOODY HOT RING BURNERS Lol

13 Patagonia

Probably the best, we know the tense finale but the scenery all round was stunning

One of the best top gear ever. it was ashram about the misunderstanding but apart from that very good.

The cars were great the guys were at there
best the journey was one of the most challenging yet. People seem to use the ending and 'misunderstanding' to criticise the episode when actually it just added to the epic choas this special was. This is easily my favourite!
