As if we didn’t have any more reason to get all geeked up over the 16th season of Top Gear, the lovely folks over at the BBC were kind enough to give us a peek of what to expect from Clarkson, Hammond, and May.

Top Gear’s 16th season is set to hit the tubes on Sunday, January 23, 2011, at 8 pm on BBC2 and BBC HD with the show airing in the States at a later date, that is unless you decide to stream the show on the Internet. As you can expect, you can take it to the bank that they’ve got tons of surprises in store for us.

Now we don’t know the full details behind the show, but we’ve gotten a glimpse of some of the things on tap for season no. 16, including reviews on the new Ariel Atom and the Skoda Yeti, a segment on the proper way to destroy a Volkswagen Beetle, a classic dust-up between the Porsche 959 and the Ferrari F40, a segment involving submarines, James May in tights, and landing a helicopter on top of a car.

At some point, there’s also going to be the return of our favorite test driver, the Stig, somewhere in there.

Rest assured, season 16 of Top Gear is expected to be one for the books, and quite frankly, coming from Clarkson, Hammond and May, we don’t expect anything less.

Hate the chubby one, but maybe he is the love/hate androgynous Japanese car guy to bridge the audience over to the other two hosts. but If you go and read the article you would see that he actually doesn’t hate them at all.

I think they are all about having fun and making money... by investing money of course. What do you think... that they have a small budget or something. They probably invest MILLIONS each season!

Don’t be so hard on them. They are only trying to have fun.

The bad part is that this show should be forbidden under 18 or so since all that destruction can have bad effects on a developing personality of a 14 years old, let’s say.

This trailer confirms that the team from TG is full of idiots smiley

I guess soon you will not be able to tell the difference between them and those idiots that put fishing hooks in their mouths or eat human fat from surgical clinics. Beaax!

I think the man behind the helmet and racing suit is Tiff Niddell, that’s the rumor of course so I’ll stick with it. besides, tiff is really a talented driver so he deserves to be the next stig.
