Top Gear TV returns this Sunday!
Episode 1's details here: Viper ACR vs ‘Vette Z06, Ariel's Nomad and celebrity guests
The wait is nearly over: all-new Top Gear returns on May 29th, and we can share some details about what you can expect from the first episode.
In celebration of 1986 classic Top Gun – which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year – Chris Evans heads to Nevada to pit the 645bhp Dodge Viper ACR against a Chevy Corvette Z06 driven by Sabine Schmitz. Cue roof-mounted guns.
Elsewhere, Matt LeBlanc takes Ariel’s manic Nomad into deepest Morocco for some fun, while back on British soil, both he and Chris Evans take a rain-soaked road trip to Blackpool in a pair of roofless Reliant Rialtos. Yup, it’s time for a UK vs USA challenge.
And we can confirm that episode one’s first studio guests will be none other than The Social Network and Batman vs Superman star Jesse Eisenberg, alongside Michelin-starred chef Gordon Ramsay.
While you count down the days until Sunday, have a watch of the extended trailer for Series 23, above…
