Top Gear Botswana Special's Lancia Beta has been found
The Lancia is still in Botswana
The Top Gear Botswana Special is famous for Richard Hammond and his Opel Kadett - which was named 'Oliver' later. In the midst of the Hammond-Oliver love story, people have forgotten about what happened to the cars driven by Jeremy and James.
In the special, May drove a Mercedes-Benz 230E and Clarkson chose a Lancia Beta for the challenge. Avid Top Gear fans will remember that Jeremy removed many parts of the Lancia (including the doors) to make the car light. Now, Clarkson's Lancia Beta has been found.
Youtuber Ryan Ball has found the Lancia lying in Botswana without any wheels. Before leaving the car in Botswana, the TG team did put the doors back on the Beta. The number plate of the car confirms that this is the Lancia Beta driven by Jeremy Clarkson.
