Die hard Top Gear fans will have no problem remembering the name Jason Barlow. If you’re not one of the aforementioned people, then we’re going to enlighten you on who he is.
Barlow was once a co-host of the popular BBC show, appearing in 53 episodes from 2000 to 2001. While he’s about 10 years removed from his time on the show, Barlow is still in the auto industry, currently serving as editor-at-large for Top Gear magazine, as well as being a contributing editor for GQ UK and a columnist for The Sunday Times. Surely, this dude’s got some serious credentials.
Now, he’s parlayed those credentials into appearing as the host of Honda’s new promo film for the CR-Z hybrid coupe. We gotta say, this is a different treatment from what we’re used to, so we’re going to keep a close eye on this, especially given that this first episode looks very promising.
