TOP Gear is back. The new series of the world’s biggest motoring show sees Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid at the helm, with appearances by German race ace Sabine Schmitz, Formula 1 supremo Eddie Jordan, and the international man of mystery referred to only as ‘The Stig’.

Amazing cars and stunts

In this new seven-part series, Top Gear’s presenters journey across wild Kazakhstan in cars with nearly a million kilometres on the clock, tackle an old-school motorsport in Cuba, blast through America’s wild west in convertible supercars, and attempt to turn an ugly South Korean people-carrier into a luxury yacht to rival Monaco’s finest.

LeBlanc, Harris and Reid also review the latest and greatest cars from around the globe; from the Ferrari FXX K to the Aston Martin DB11, Porsche Cayman and Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Oh, and an eight-wheeled, all-terrain monster from Russia, because no series is truly complete without an eight-wheeled, all-terrain monster from Russia.

It’s all brought to you from Top Gear’s famous test track and famously draughty studio, where a fresh crop of celebrities will attempt to impress with their driving skills. - Wheels24
