New Top Gear Trailer Shows Vehicular Mayhem

Grand Tour fans have been enjoying a significantly improved second season but the show is about to get some competition in the form of an all-new series of Top Gear.

Headed to television screens shortly, the latest season will feature Chris Harris, Matt LeBlanc, and Rory Reid as well as some of the hottest vehicles on the market. The trailer doesn’t reveal much but we can see several high-performance models including the BMW M5, Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 LE, and McLaren 720S.

The hosts will also get behind the wheel of an assortment of other vehicles including the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Ford Mustang, and Kia Stinger. The series will also showcase off-road vehicles and have the Stig test drive a high-performance tractor in a field.

As usual, the hosts will travel to a variety of different countries and the clip suggests Chris Harris will be in Japan to test out the Lexus LC and Honda Civic Type R. Harris can also been seen in a four-wheeled flying vehicle which looks like something out of The World Is Not Enough.

Last but not least, the hosts will try their luck in a handful of second-hand Bentley and Rolls-Royce vehicles. This doesn’t appear to go very well as Matt LeBlanc’s Bentley breaks down and Rory Reid can be seen crashing a Rolls-Royce.

    Went to the filming of the first episode – all I can say is it’s great and worth watching!

    I feel sorry for the Jezza/Hamster/Slow trio but they lost it. The new (new new) Top Gear is now the good Top Gear.

    • No need to be sorry… I enjoy both. So I still have the 3 guys that gave us TG, and since 2nd season, a different Top Gear also good. It’s like Top Gear never ended, and we have a franchise that is actually good.

    3 old British twits, or a breath of fresh air? I like the new Top Gear too.

      Princess Diana was a”Breath of Fresh Air”. Look what happened… Prefer the Twits to the Dimwits.

    • Hate to being pedantic but LeBlanc is American.
