The Top Gear boys are back, looking a little greyer but still behaving as adolescent as possible.

Here are some images previewing the upcoming 17th series of the famed BBC program Top Gear.

As usual, Clarkson, May and Hammond are headed to many exotic locales and doing some fun stunts with the likes of the Royal Marines.

In the first episode, Jeremy Clarkson holds a 50th birthday party for the Jaguar E-Type, Richard Hammond is in South Africa to test a new, massive off-roader, James May tries out the MINI rally car and it is legendary rocker Alice Cooper in the "star in a reasonably priced car" segment.

And is that Jeremy's new girlfriend-on-the-side with his name tattooed on her back?

The new season of Top Gear begins airing on BBC2 and BBC HD this Sunday June 26.
