The boys are back and going flat out

Are you ready for the new season of Top Gear? Well, you better be, because it’s charging up your rear-view mirror in a cloud of tire smoke, mechanical abuse, and slapstick comedy. This will be the 25th season for the British motoring program, and as evidenced by this 30-second clip, it looks to offer viewers plenty of sliding, lots of airborne antics, and a generous heaping of gratuitous displays of speed. The clip looks as though it’s set in an abandoned industrial center, which is set up in perfect Gymkhana-style with dirt, jumps, and several heavy things to run into. Making their appearance is the trio of new hosts, Matt LeBlanc, Rory Reid, and Chris Harris, who are piloting a Shelby Mustang GT350, Jaguar F-Type SVR and McLaren 570S, respectively. Making a cameo is long-time friend of the show, Ken Block, who’s looking to take a little time off from nearly sliding off mountains to issue some high-performance justice to the TG crew as some kind of deputized speed sheriff behind the wheel of a custom off-roader. Of course, the boys aren’t taking it sitting down, and you can guess what happens as a result...

The BBC should release Episode 1 of the new season of Top Gear sometime early next year. Stay tuned to TopSpeed for updates as we get them.
