Top Gear series 17 preview – Click above to watch the video after the jump

We're just days away from the start of the new series of Top Gear, and we're all excited to see what Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have in store for us this summer. Last week we brought you the first teaser commercial, and now the BBC has released a second to tantalize us with what's to come.

So what have we learned? James will be showing us the new Aston Martin Virage, the McLaren MP4-12C which Jezza was driving is pitted against the Ferrari 458 Italia, the BMW 8-Series is up against the Mercedes-Benz CL, a Chevrolet Corvette is for cowboys, and Richard really appears to like the Fiat Abarth 500C. Follow the jump to watch the brief 30-second video for yourself.

      My stepdad has a gorgeous white on tan 850i. Aside from the E30 M3 and the new F10 M5, I think the 850i is the best looking car to come out of Munich, period.

      If only BMW released that concept coupe as a new 8 series. Imagine if they did another Alpina 8? I still want the 8'er.

        I pray to Jebus every night so BMW won't make another 8 series. It was an awesome car, but BMW has lost their touch and they would ruin it.

          BBC America is completely caught up. They've aired all the episodes of Series 16 already. But yes, grab the torrent from finalgear to get the Brit version usually day of.

      Dont get me wrong, I love the 8 series. But you cant beat the V10 M5.
