The boys are back for a two part Christmas special. Theyre off around the world again, on a road trip of American and then through a war zone! The BBC have released this trailer, which gives a sneak preview of whats to come.

The first episode airs on Tuesday 21st December. Clarkson, Hammond and May are taking a trio of supercars on a road trip up the east coast of America in a bid to find the worlds greatest sportscar.

The cars theyre testing are the Ferrari 458 (buzzScore 9.6), Mercedes SLS AMG (buzzScore 8.9) and the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (buzzScore 9.6). There will be the usual challenges along the way, one of which will be finding the fastest way into New York.

The second episode will be shown on Boxing Day. Top Gear are doing their own take on the nativity play, by recreating the journey of the 3 wise men. Its a 1,200 mile trip, crossing countries including Iran, Syria and even Iraq!

Dont expect them to be driving 4x4s through the desert, theyve been given old convertible sports cars, a Mazda MX-5, Fiat Barchetta and BMW Z3.

What a nice Christmas treat!
