Last night I took some time to sit my significant other down and show her what made Top Gear so special. This involved watching the infamous Reliant Robin bit, as well as the trio’s journey in their homemade campervans – I like to think that these are perfect to show people just how hilarious the show can be. Needless to say, she loved it and wanted to watch more. To Netflix we went! When she asked if new episodes were coming out I had to emotionally say “no” and that Top Gear now has a new set of hosts and the trio is off creating a new show on Amazon. She was a bit miffed at this, to say the least, but she’s still excited to watch what old and new Top Gear has to offer.
So, when I woke up this morning, booted up my computer and saw that a trailer for the new Top Gear was uploaded to YouTube, I was pretty darn surprised, considering last night’s viewing material. In the tailer we see Chris Evans, Matt LeBlanc and Sabine Schmitz, some of the new hosts, as well as some automotive love from the Aston Martin Vulcan, Ariel Nomad and, of course, the Reliant Robin.
Check out the video below to see what the new show’s like for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments below. Will you be watching the new series, the Amazon series or both?
