He’s cool, he’s quick, and now, he’s the new host of Top Gear! As you’ll have heard, Mr Matt LeBlanc will appear on your screens alongside Chris Evans when the new series of TG telly premieres in May.

“As a car nut and a massive fan of Top Gear, I’m honoured and thrilled to be a part of this iconic show’s new chapter,” he said. “What a thrill!”

He is of course, no stranger to TG. He remains the fastest-ever Star in a Reasonably Priced Car with a time of 1m 42s in the Kia cee’d.

On the day he set that record however, we gave him a little treat. We lined up a McLaren 12C – then the MP4-12C of course – and let him loose around the TG track. With none other than The Stig on board as a passenger.

Have a watch of the video above, and stay tuned to TopGear.com for more news on the new show as soon as we get it...
