Some sad news for those who, like us, thought the reborn Top Gear was really hitting its stride lately: Former Friends star Matt LeBlanc, who has been a presenter since 2016, is leaving the show after its next season.
By a show of virtual hands, how many of you saw the newest Top Gear episode that aired over the weekend? The Japan episode? Was your mind blown? Because mine sure was.
For many of us, myself included, Top Gear was the mecca of car shows. Not only was it funny and entertaining, but it also widened the appeal of cars to our friends and family who wouldn’t have otherwise cared in the slightest. By 2015, the show claimed more than 350 million viewers worldwide. That’s a lot of weight on…
Mark your calendars, friends. A brand new Top Gear season 25 trailer dropped today, and not only do we now know when it’ll air, we also now know that they somehow managed to get some space between the wheels and the road in an Aston Martin.
This Sunday the new season of Top Gear starts in the U.S., and I can’t imagine anyone just jumping into and watching something like that without proper preparation. That’s why I took it upon myself to cross the ocean, find the Top Gear set, and corner each of the three hosts and ask them the important questions. The…
Being excited for a new season of Top Gear is very much like being excited for the holidays: you know great stuff is coming your way, you just aren’t quite certain of what it might be. This new Top Gear trailer makes me feel exactly that way.

But with Chris Evans gone and trailers showing Chris Harris and Rory Reid taking bigger roles, this may be the revamp we’ve been waiting for.
After almost forgetting about the season finale of The Grand Tour last night, I yet again slipped into the altered state of life where there’s no new episodes of old-Top Gear content or new-Top Gear content and my mind wanders, at times dangerously, adrift. And then Chris Harris was spotted in a Bugatti Chiron.
Some of you may not be aware of this, but Porsche has apparently made a model called the 911 R. It is a car that some would say is quite adequate if you like that kind of thing. Top Gear’s Matt LeBlanc shares his thoughts on the new “fancy Beetle.”
With Chris Evans bowing out after just one season of the refreshed Top Gear, he leaves behind his cohost, Matt LeBlanc. While the BBC says that it has no immediate plans to change the line-up or add a new host, noted musician 50 Cent thinks that he would be a valuable addition to the team.
Two junior presenters will be promoted, a celebrity road trip feature will be added and a host of production staff will be shuffled around for the next series of Top Gear, reports The Daily Telegraph. A BBC document The Telegraph obtained shows just how hard BBC is trying to move on from Top Gear’s unloved relaunch.
Series 23 of Top Gear is over after six episodes. Chris Evans is gone. Chris Harris and Rory Reid are the stand-out favorites. Matt LeBlanc was somewhat of a surprise. Filming on Series 24 starts this September, so until then, let’s discuss the best aspects of the now Old-New-New Top Gear.
