The trio's trip across the Okavango Delta is one of the greatest pieces of television ever, and it's scary to think that it has been 14 years since that crazy special. You'd think that Jeremy Clarkson's Lancia Beta Coupe would have been lost forever after the crew left Botswana, but a ISworldsr currently living in the country has found the car, and has since completed the trio as well...

  • You know if old top gear was still going right now, Hammond or James would buy the thing, import it, paint it red, tow his alfa, switch the plates, and put it in his parking spot with the wheels off for him to discover it in the morning, and then all of england would wake to a very angry clarkson yelling where the F is my alfa?!!!!

  • Am I the only one who is sceptical that it's really the same Lancia? I very much doubt the crew would have refitted the doors, bumpers etc. Why would they bother if it's to be scrapped? Assuming the crew didn't simply leave the parts somewhere during the journey, then they would have to have been retained by someone and refitted afterwards. Then someone would have to go to considerable trouble to dig up all the other missing parts that were smashed by a hammer or burnt. Finally the rear plate looks suspiciously new too.

  • If the Lancia comes to the UK without a thorough rustproofing, it'll probably last about 3 weeks before falling apart. I'm surprised that jaunt they did across the salt flats didn't do for the thing. It's a pity, because of all Lancias, the Beta is my favourite - it has sentimental value, as my uncle used to have a sandy yellow one. Mind you, that was on Jersey, so, not being far from the sea, the car lasted about a week and a half.
