The New, Extended 'Top Gear' Trailer Shows off a Serious Roster of Vehicles
The all-new series of Top Gear has an extended trailer out that builds upon the previous trailer‘s high-production values. This new spot for the long-running auto-show sees hosts Chris Evans, Matt Leblanc, the new Stig, et al. whipping around the world in gloriously saturated HD. There’s a veritable all-star team of vehicles: Aston Martins, McLarens, Mustangs, Corvettes… you name it, it’s getting pushed to its very limits. Evans even attempts to race a Viper against a fighter jet.
All in all, there is about 3/4 of a minute’s worth of extra footage; the extended look at the series comes just days after the BBC announced that it would be bumping the series premiere from May 8 in order to avoid a clash with the live premiere of the Britain’s Got Talent semi-finals. The new premiere date of May 29, however, seems to conflict with BGT‘s live finale, so the Beeb seems to have swapped out one scheduling conflict for another. Given all of the turmoil behind the scenes, we’re interested to see how this new series of Top Gearshapes up and how it stacks up against Hammond, Clarkson and May’s new Amazon show, The Grand Tour. Which will you be tuning in to?
