Latest Top Gear TV trailer contains Aston Martin Vulcan
The Top Gear teasers continue as the BBC has released a new trailer celebrating a "Great British Summer" in the rain-soaked seaside resort of Blackpool.
After showing a thoroughly displeased Chris Evans and Matt Leblanc, the clip moves onto some more exciting fare including Chris Harris going flat out in an Aston Martin Vulcan at the Abu Dhabi GP circuit. The clip also reveals a number of other high-performance machines including a Corvette Z06, Dodge Viper, Ford Mustang, and Ferrari 250GT TdF. The revamp season will also feature an assortment of luxury crossovers including the new Mercedes GLC and Jaguar F-Pace.
The teaser footage doesn't provide a lot of context but this year's season will be particularly interesting as it will be the first without Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond. The trio left the show last year to create a new series for Amazon Prime.
The old hosts were a staple of Top Gear and helped turn the show into an international phenomenon so it will be interesting to see if the new six-host lineup - which also includes Eddie Jordan, Sabine Schmitz, and Rory Reid - can keep viewers interested.
