First trailer for the new series of Top Gear

New Top Gear teaser trailer released

Since the new line-up of Top Gear presenters was announced last month there has been a lot of criticism and no shortage of speculation about what format the popular motoring show would take. This has now been somewhat addressed as the first teaser trailer for the upcoming series has been released.

The show looks like it will be action packed with the trailer featuring plenty of hooning from the new hosts. Some of the cars featured include the McLaren 675 LT, a Ferrari F12 Tdf, the Ariel Nomad, the Ford Mustang, a pair of Reliant 3 wheelers driving from London to Blackpool and an 820bhp Aston Vulcan at Yas Marina doing donuts at night time.

Back in February Top Gear posted: “We are very proud to announce that racing driver Sabine Schmitz, YouTube star Chris Harris, F1 pundit Eddie Jordan and motoring journalist Rory Reid will join Chris Evans, Matt LeBlanc and of course, The Stig, when the show returns in May.”

If the trailer is anything to go by the new show certainly looks promising, though will it be good enough to keep fans of the old format happy?! Only time will tell.

The new Top Gear is due to air on the BBC in May of this year. Stay tuned for more updates.
