Top Gear Trio Play Outlaws With V8 Supercars Chased By Ken Block

The very first episode of Top Gear’s Series 25 will include the three hosts taking on Ken Block in a V8 police chase that’s supposed to hark back to the days when privateers illegally produced alcohol, aka moonshine – and, yes, that brings to mind the Dukes of Hazard TV series.

For this challenge, each host had to pick a V8-powered car. Chris Harris went with a McLaren 570GT, Rory Reid with a Jaguar F-Type SVR and Matt LeBlanc with a Mustang GT350R. Their opponent, who plays the role of a police officer chasing the three “outlaws”, is professional rally driver Ken Block, who is driving his Can-Am Maverick X3.

Aside from this chase, Series 25 of Top Gear will also feature a review of an old Citroen 2CV, some track time at Willow Springs with a Chevy Camaro ZL1 1LE and loads more.

In fact, during last month’s Series 25 trailer, we saw the three hosts take turns at reviewing all sorts of new cars, from the Mercedes-AMG E63 to the Kia Stinger, Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Lexus LC and Honda Civic Type-R.

While UK viewers will be able to see the new series’ first episode this Sunday, those watching in the U.S. on BBC America will have to wait until March 3rd.

    Anything with Chris Harris I’ll take. Plus, Rory is pretty good and even Matt works well with them (even though I’m not a big fan of his). New Top Gear being interesting? Bring it on!

    Ken Block’s helmet is the finest.

    Is it just me who finds this cringe-worthy?
