The team from Top Gear have just been spotted filming an upcoming episode of everybody’s favorite BBC based automotive television series in Romania. The new episode will be only one of many that will promote popular driving destinations around the world in the upcoming season. The boys from the BBC were spotted in front of the Romanian Parliamentary Palace with a trio of drop top super cars. From what we could tell Richard Hammond was behind the wheel of a new Ferrari California, Jeremy Clarkson got his hands on an Aston Martin V8 Vantage roadster which left the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder for Captain slow James May. We even get a good look at the Top Gear film car, a matte black Volkswagen Passat.
Based on what we learned from the Romanian news reporter, the English television crew had been making their way across the southeast corner of the country on their way to the shoot in the capital city of Bucharest. Aside from the steps of Parliament, the trio of automotive journalists trekked across Romania’s major highway, the Transfagarasan road that bisects the center of the country running north to south, along the Black Sea coast down into the Danube delta and a few other select locations in and around Bucharest which should make for some extremely impressive shots, especially after the post production specialists at Top Gear are done working their digital effects magic.
