The boys from Top Gear are no strangers to getting their feet dirty all in the name of good television. And when offered the chance to go to Iceland to get up close and personal with an erupting volcano, let’s just say it was an opportunity that was too good to pass up.

So, now that Top Gear is prepping for their 15th season, we can at least look forward to one segment where Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammon make a trip to Iceland for a date with an erupting volcano.

The Top Gear crew used the same Arctic Trucks vehicle that they used to drive around the Arctic Circle and you can expect that this new adventure will give you a sense as to how these fellows live for the thrill - even if it means getting face-to-face with an erupting volcano.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

This better be for one of their "Specials". They are the only real great episode per season.

You got down ranked into oblivion already... but you say something like that, I’ll just down rank you anyways.

I bet the truck they are using is really pushed to the very limits.

Yes, this is a once in a lifetime experience. Even myself wanted to experience that kind of dangerous road trip.

They really like to face a dangerous and challenging activities, I guess this is the perfect place to test the truck they’ve used on the artic circle.

I bet that they have nerves of steel. I hope that Tiff Niddel join them for a volcano ride.
