Fans of the BBC's Top Gear television program will be pleased to know The World of Top Gear Exhibition has opened its doors at the British National Motor Museum.

The new exhibition is held at Beaulieu in Southern England. It features a collection of the actual cars created by presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May for some of their most ambitious challenges on the show over the years.

Fans will be familiar with challenges such as their attempt to cross the Channel with their home-made car/boats, as well as the Stretched Limo Challenge, where they set out to turn used cars into luxury stretch limos, and chauffeur three celebrities to an awards show.

Visitors will also experience the Top Gear `Enormodrome' which aims to recreate the feel of the Top Gear studio in which the TV show is filmed in front of a live audience.

As well as regular features from the program, including the Cool Wall and the Celebrity `Lap Times' board, visitors can watch an exclusive video presentation from behind the scenes at the Top Gear HQ with Jeremy, Richard and James, plus clips from the show featuring the cars on display.

"It makes perfect sense for the National Motor Museum to be working with BBC Worldwide on the launch of World of Top Gear. While the National Motor Museum is primarily about historic vehicles, this exhibition shows that cars can be entertaining and accessible to the whole family, not just the car enthusiast. We are delighted with the response it has received from Top Gear fans," said Stephen Munn, Commercial Director at the National Motor Museum.

"It's fantastic that Beaulieu is preserving for posterity so many of the cars Jeremy, Richard and James have built for the show, and we are delighted to make the cars accessible for Top Gear fans to enjoy," said Adam Waddell, Managing Director of Top Gear, BBC Worldwide.

World of Top Gear can be viewed during a visit to the Beaulieu attraction that includes the National Motor Museum with its collection of over 250 vehicles, Palace House (home of the Montagu family since 1538) and the 13th century Beaulieu Abbey, plus rides and drives for all the family. Open every day, except Christmas Day, from 10am. For more information visit www.beaulieu.co.uk
