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 FIworldr currently living in the country has found the car, and has since completed the trio as well...

    • Manscaped is the sort of thing the hosts would've shown on a Christmas episode to laugh at. Like NordVPN or Ridge Wallets, it's something you'd never want to buy on your own, but because so many youtube channels advertise them, you're tricked into thinking they're actually worth it. I'm sure if you were paid $500+ and/or given the product for free you'd be willing to read off a script to, but ask yourselves how many of these people would've bought the thing on their own.

  • Seems like a waste of money to restore this car that, to me, just looks like scrap. I suspect it would be cheaper to build a vehicle from scratch. How many of the original parts are still serviceable. I guess you get into the Ship of Theseus problem but after all the necessary repairs are made I doubt it will be the same car at all.

  • 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?!!!!
