Top Gear have released their third trailer for their upcoming series which debuts later this month, and to us this one looks more like a PR move than anything else. You see, it seems to go out of its way to make Chris Evans look like a really nice guy, with him calling people “my brother” and high-fiving Matt LeBlanc, whom he allegedly detests.
The trailer shows a very wet Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc in Blackpool, while there’s also a few guest appearances from the likes of Seasick Steve, Tinie Tempah and Texan singer Sharleen Spiteri, as well as a first look at Eddie Jordan on the show. Racing driver Sabine Schmitz, motoring journalist Rory Reid and YouTuber Chris Harris are also set to feature as presenters.
Luckily, there’s also a lot of cars on show – including Land Rover Series 1, Willys Jeep, Ferrari 250GT TdF, Jaguar F-Pace, Ford Mustang, Aston Martin Vulcan, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Ariel Nomad, Dodge Viper ACR and Chevrolet Corvette Z06.
The BBC still hasn’t specified an exact date for the series premiere yet, although it should be some time in late May or early June.
A wise man once said, and I quote, “…utter rubbish…”. Looks good though.
