The BBC released the trailer for their new Top Gear reboot Thursday.
It is the first official footage released for the new season since the sacking of famous host Jeremy Clarkson after he punched a producer in a dispute over a hot meal.
Clarkson was followed out the door by fellow Top Gear hosts Richard Hammond and James May, who have since begun production of a new $ 250 million series on Amazon.
The new BBC Top Gear, which will now feature six hosts including British radio personality Chris Evans and “Friends” actor Matt LeBlanc, is set to premier this May.
The trailer revealed a variety of stunts in the classic Clarksonian Top Gear tradition: Evans drifting a McLaren supercar with Formula 1 driver Jenson Button, LeBlanc driving about in a ridiculously modified three-wheeled Reliant Robin, and what appeared to be a C7 Corvette with a roof-mounted machine gun.
Devoted Top Gear fans, many vocally skeptical of any replacement for the Clarkson-Hammond-May triumvirate, may be relieved to see antics resembling the previous show.
Here’s the trailer.
