Gallery: yes, Top Gear TV is back!

  1. Top Gear telly’s back! Yep, we have a whole new series worth of penetrating investigations into the world of cars ready for your delectation. But you’re probably not even reading these words, because you’ve worked out with your eyes and brain that this is an exclusive preview gallery of what you can expect from Series 20.

    When’s it on, we hear you crow? Well, young internetling, the first episode airs on 30 June, on BBC Two and BBC HD.

    Now click forth. Go on. Do it. Yeah, you with your mouth open. And if you want more info, you best get yourself the latest copy of Top Gear magazine, out now.

  2. Here in Britain, the economy isn’t brilliant. But it’s still a lot better than the financial situation in, say, Spain. Which is why, in the spirit of pan-European friendship, Top Gear generously took some strong British pounds over there to see how our Iberian friends are getting on.

  3. Wherever you go in the world, there’s one vehicle that’s universal: the taxi. But the type of car used isn’t universal. So which is best?

  4. If you have few friends, the BAC Mono is the car for you. It has just one seat. It’s as symmetrical as The Stig and looks a bit like him too. It also has a 2.4-litre Cosworth engine making 280bhp. Good job the special seat fabric is resistant to many forms of excretion.

  6. Both the Mercedes SLS AMG Black and SLS AMG Electric Drive have flappy doors and a Mercedes badge. One has a large V8 engine made by a man in Germany. One is electric, powered by a battery pack related to the KERS system in an F1 car. Time to hand over to the arbiter of all things oversteery, Jeremy Clarkson, to see which is best…

  7. There’s a whole category of car that TG telly has managed to ignore for years. They’re called crossovers or soft-roaders and they’re everywhere. Clearly, then, people are buying these things. But who? Jeremy and James reckon it’s caravanners. So we hooked up a couple of actual ‘vans for a trip to the New Forest. Don’t worry: nothing catches fire. That would be ridiculous.

  8. At some point every year, television news bulletins become chock-full of reporters standing in remote high streets up to their ankles in water talking about the latest devastating floods. What’s required here is some typical Top Gear engineering brilliance, based around the uniquely British and uniquely ingenious concept of a hovercraft…

  10. If you think about it, the British car industry is brilliant. Which is why Jeremy has been assigned to test the new Jaguar F-Type, Richard has put his hand up to drive the new Range Rover Sport and James, cleverly aware that Britain doesn’t just build lots of cars, has volunteered to have a go in the brand-new Bus For London.
