Richard Hammond's Vauxhall Nova SRi on display at Beaulieu’s World of Top Gear

Richard Hammond’s Vauxhall Nova SRi, which we saw in the opening episode of the latest Top Gear series, is now on display to the public at Beaulieu’s World of Top Gear.

Hammond drove the Nova SRi as part of Top Gear’s retro hot hatchback challenge, which saw the presenters manoeuvring through the aisles of a supermarket, and testing the cars as getaway vehicles in an especially dramatic police chase.

Hammond’s Vauxhall Nova SRi was wrapped in ‘authentic’ arctic camouflage, however, this new pristine look didn’t last long, thanks to the large amount of time the car spent sliding along on its side.

If you are heading to Beaulieu, don’t expect to hear the engine running as it is broken.

In addition to some of the cars from the show, the whole ‘Enormodrome’ has the feel of the Top Gear studio with regular features from the programme, including the Cool Wall and the Celebrity ‘Lap Times’ board.
