Top Gear filming in China

Top Gear filming in China

Chinese media are going wild because BBC’s Top Gear has landed in China. Jeremy Clarkson and James May arrived in Beijing for filming a new Top Gear episode which will be on TV in next year’s season. On pics the shooting of what appear to be two items: the first with May in a JAC Binyue and Jeremy in a Greatwall Haval M2.

The second item is about copied Chinese cars with a Shuanghuan Noble (Smart), a Shuanghuan SCO (BMW X5) and a Lifan 320 (Mini). On some other pics Clarkson and May are looking curiously at an old Chinese 3-wheeler but that one does not seem part of the show.

A Land Rover Discovery camera-car has Shanghai-plates on it, this could mean that Top Gear also filmed an item there.

See all pics below:
