We’ve only seen the trailer for James and Jeremy’s upcoming DVD, but given that there are a couple Ferraris and a classic Jeep under critical review, we expect it will have the usual Top Gear brilliance we know and love. Jeremy Clarkson and James May will present their opinions on The Worst Car in the History of the World in a brand new, all exclusive Top Gear DVD.
The DVD, Blu-Ray or Digital download comes out on November 19th in the UK and on pirated torrent sites, with official preorders occurring now.
In what I would classify as earth shattering news it was confirmed earlier this morning via Twitter that Season 19 of BBC’s Top Gear will not hit the airwaves until January of 2013. We first heard of the news from Jalopnik.com who was notified that Jeremy Clarkson had stated on a South African radio show that the 3 host will be together during the summer months will be during the Top Gear live events. We had hoped that this was just a miss quote of Clarkson’s or miss reporting by Jalopnik however that would be the first time either of those two had made such a blunder, so we took it a fact with a glimmer of hope .
So last night we lit a commemorative candle and when to bed hoping to wake up to a story retraction article or BBC news reassuring us that this was all just a nasty internet rumor. Unfortunately neither happened and all that we woke up to was a handful of tweets from Clarkson himself confirming that Top Gear will in fact not be returning until January of 2013.
Clarkson’s Tweets from earlier on today
So what or who is to blame? Can you say “2012 London Olympics” or one of Simon Cowell’s reality singing / talent shows? Possibly, but until we hear from the BBC it will be hard to say 100%
I know which one I’d like to watch
The only silver lining will be that Clarkson also confirmed that they will be producing another Christmas special. One can only hope that it is more like Vietnam, and Bolivia and less like the India special. All and all it sounds like a perfect time for a new car show and host to break out on to the scene so if there are any TV executives out there looking hit up my contact information on the about page and we’ll set up a meeting as I am willing, ready and able to discuss my ideas with you.
Could we interest you in watching the Top Gear Trailer for the upcoming season # 18 as you drink your breakfast tea and eat your crumpets covered in marmalade? This baby is hot off the press and is the official Top Gear Season 18 BBC Television commercial to promote the upcoming season.
The ad doesn’t mention the start date however we have read reports from MyEpisodes.com episode on will debut on January 29th at 8 pm in the UK. So by 5pm EST on the last Sunday of this month check your friendly torrent site as we are sure that the first episode will be ready for download. Curiously this would put the seasons second episode right up against the Super Bowl which we assume isn’t going to be a problem for those European fans however you won’t find any episode recaps here that Monday morning as we are anticipating having a major case of the Monday’s on Feb 6th.
After watching the 30 spot countless times this season looks to be holding true to the traditional Top gear model and we are looking forward to it.
Last year the Top Gear Trio headed to the birth place of the Baby Jesus and only two of them survived the trip. This year’s special had its teaser trailer posted on YouTube over the weekend and like we reported a couple months back they the boys are off to India this year.
The spin is that their mission this time is to boost the British economy, and it looks like the challenge will once again involve Top Gear hosts picking their own favorite British cars. The Top Gear India Special will be aired on BBC2 on December 28th so check your local Torrent sites to grab it as soon as it comes out.
See this photo? That’s a Noble, a McLaren MP4-12C and a Lamborghini Aventador being prepped for taping in Lecce, Italy. And what trio of personalities will be piloting these exotic machines? None other than Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, of course. Top Gear is about to get its Roman and rural Italian groove on.
We seem to have been on a real Top Gear kick over the past week or so. Why stop a good thing I always say so we have more Top Gear related news for you in today’s post. It seems that last week the trailer for Jeremy Clarkson’s new movie was released on the movies production companies YouTube channel. The movie is set to be released on November 7th 2011 and is titled “PoweredUp”
Judging by the trailer the same formula has been used like in Clarkson’s films, and why not if it isn’t broke why bother fixing it? We are excited to see the finished product as the one thing the trailer does is leave us wanting more; More cars, More power and most of all More of Clarkson’s zany analogies.
It was last month when we brought you a video in which Jeremy Clarkson does a voice over cameo as he walked us through the features of the M12 FAV Warthog. For those of you who are not avid gamers the M12 FAV Warthog is from the Xbox game Halo.
Well today we have come across another video game that is exclusive to the Xbox platform that has used Mr. Clarkson and his distinct vocal cords for the pre-games soliloquy. In this video we find a man stuck in traffic and even worst stuck in the back seat of a car pool while being stuck in traffic. We are then given examples of how car enthusiast are a dying bread and that there is no longer a place on this earth for us to satisfy our craving for acceleration. Speed and the smell of burnt rubber.
Fortunately Xbox has the solution for us and it comes in the form of their newest edition to the Forza Motorsport game series. Forza Motorsport 4 will be released on October 11th in North America and on the 14th for the rest of the world. If you can’t wait until next week to purchase the full game Xbox live Gold members can download a demo today Oct 4th and all other Xbox Live members can download it on Oct 7th.

Today we have found video evidence that confirms the rumors that Top Gear is in fact shooting there holiday special in India. The dynamic trio was spotted in Mumbai yesterday as they were shooting one of their zany challenges. In the below video we see Richard Hammond hamming it up for a camera crew cleaning up the road from what looks like a challenge idea going horribly wrong.
From our point of view the challenge looks like a lunch time food delivery run, and if we had to guess they would be racing the traditional food runners who ride the train in to the densely populated Mumbai. Clarkson Hammond and May have been spotted over the past week driving around in three classic British cars convoy style. Form the reports the cars are a Mini, a Jaguar and a Rolls-Royce.
Just what kind of challenges the producers have got them performing remains to be seen, but if the previous specials serve as any indication, this should be a good one
Oh we are sorry for the terrible music just toss on the mute button as there is no speak to listen to.
Happy Friday afternoon! I know that by this time on a Friday Afternoon I’m not too interested in doing any really work and usually find myself surfing in the bowels of Youtube. Well this week I found a great clip for those of you who are Jeremy Clarkson fan’s. In it we find Clarkson reviewing the M12 FAV Warthog from the Xbox game Halo.
I love his dry British humor as he goes through all of the Warthogs features and the line about the Porsche 911 is spot on and had me almost fall out of my chair I was laughing so hard.
Have a great weekend everyone, and enjoy!
This is a process that I can only dream of and hope that one day I may be the lucky guy taking out his brand new hyper car that isn’t street legal and doesn’t conform to any racing series standards. You have to respect the sound of that massive 6.0-liter V12 as it revs from idol to 4000 revs during warm up and then explodes with sound as it barrels around the track. I can only imagine how fast a 2300 pound car would accelerate when producing 730 horsepower.
If you want another awesome Zonda R experience check out Jeremy Clarkson’s latest DVD titled “The Italian Job”. In it he takes the Zonda out on Imola track in Italy, Power !!! It is a great segment and an fantastic Movie to watch from start to finish.
