BBC releases first teaser trailer for revamped ‘Top Gear’

LONDON, April 1 (UPI) — The BBC released a trailer for the revamped version of its car-themed, British docu-series Top Gear.

“Ladies and gentlemen, may we present to you the first teaser trailer from the new series of Top Gear,” reads the message that accompanied Thursday’s minute-long clip.

“In it, you will find a roster of some of the world’s finest driving machinery, from the McLaren 675 LT and Ferrari’s F12 Tdf, right through to things like the Ariel Nomad. There’s also, um, a pair of Reliant 3 wheelers driving from London to Blackpool. One of them under its own steam, too,” the post added.

“But there is also much drifting, lots of tire smoke, and Chris Evans having a little moment following a track session with Sabine Schmitz in California. All we can say is strawberries. We’ll bring you more before the new series kicks off in May, but for now, sit back, turn it up and watch the new trailer. Note: includes an 820bhp Aston Vulcan at Yas Marina. At night. Doing donuts.”

The show will star actor Matt LeBlanc, TV personality Chris Evans, Formula 1 commentator Eddie Jordan, German racing driver Sabine Schmitz, car reviewer Rory Reid and YouTube petrolhead Chris Harris.

Top Gear has been on hiatus since last year when Jeremy Clarkson, accused of verbally abusing a producer, was fired and his co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May refused to return to the show without him. The trio is now working on a new car-related series for Amazon.
