BBC has released the second trailer of the upcoming season 27 of Top Gear. Can you guess which road test we’re most looking forward to?
May 28, 2019
Top Gear returns this summer for its 27th Season and BBC just dropped a trailer giving us a first proper glimpse at the trio of Chris Harris, Paddy McGuinness and Andrew Flintoff and their automotive adventures.
The latter two were announced as the new presenters in October last year after Matt LeBlanc left the show and Rory Reid stepped down to host the spin-off Extra Gear. McGuinness, for those who haven’t watched many British comedy shows, rose to fame with Take Me Out, Phoenix Nights and Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere. Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff on the other hand is a former England Cricket team captain who presents the podcast Flintoff, Savage and the Ping Pong Guy for BBC Radio 5 Live.
In the one minute trailer, we see more of the 1995 Daimler hearse from the teaser released in March, limited edition, track focused supercar action with the McLaren 600LT, Ferrari 488 Pista and a number of feature races with cars like the original Mini and Porsche Boxster. We also get to see the Stig with his family and McGuinness getting electrocuted while driving.
The new trailer definitely looks fun and we are excited to see how the chemistry between the trio plays out and if they could revive the Formula that made us love the original show. We don’t have a premier date yet but we won’t have to wait long as BBC promises that the new season will air “sooner than you think”.
