It’s been almost a month since BBC announced they will go on with the Christmas special Top Gear episode the crew filmed in Argentina, even though the license plate controversy is not quite over. The British national broadcasting corporation just released a short trailer of the Patagonia special and there is one subtle line that makes us believe it’s going to be really interesting.
Sliced in two, the first part of the Top Gear Patagonia Special will air on Saturday, December 27th, and it didn’t seem there was any setback created by the whole license plate incident.

Fans are once again teased with what could be one of the boy band’s best footage taken so far. Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May take three V8 sportscars on a crazy 1,600-mile journey through the spectacular landscapes of Patagonia, Argentina.

Along their adventure, they encounter rough roads, collapsed bridges, broken bones and a cow as they press onwards against the odds in a quest to reach the southernmost city in the world.

We all know how that ended, of course, but what we were quite interested in seeing is whether they decided to skip the scandal or not. And the answer at that question is no... Well, sort of.

"Who are those guys?"

Aside from Clarkson’s funny “1,600 miles in a Lotus?” remark the Top Gear lead singer delivers at the beginning, there is one more thing worth mentioning before you click the play button. At the end of the trailer we can see Jeremy looking through a binocular asking his fellow team players “who are those guys?”.

The reason the Top Gear team had to abandon their cars and flee the South American country earlier than planned was the fact that they were reportedly attacked by a crowd of Argentinian veterans. Those men felt offended by the license plate Jeremy Clarkson’s Porsche 928 was wearing, which reads H982 FKL, a possible reference to the Falklands war between the United Kingdom and Argentina.

We have the slight feeling that those were the guys Clarkson was referring to in the video below.
