Top Gear UK has released preliminary details about the Patagonia special programmed to air this Christmas.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will be back this Christmas in the Top Gear Patagonia special in which the trio will embark on a 1,600-mile journey through Patagonia to the southernmost city in the world. They will be driving the Porsche 928, Lotus Esprit and Ford Mustang through swamps, beaches, forests and ski slopes while at the end there's going to be a car football game against Argentina.

Top Gear Patagonia Special part one will air on BBC Two / BBC Two HD on December 27 at 8:30 PM while part two will follow a day later at 8:00 PM. Top Gear promises there will be "broken bones, mechanical calamities and even some cows. Plus, a climax that wasn’t really on the cards."
