A tweet by Jeremy Clarkson shows the former Top Gear crew filming again for its new Amazon show. No expense is being spared with the Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari, and McLaren P1 heading onto the track with a big crew for support.
In an interview, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos admits that the deal with the former Top Gear trio – Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May – is quite expensive, but he thinks the world is going to love their new show.
The former hosts of Top Gear might be bringing their show to the US, at least based on a joke during a recent stage show in Australia. A streaming service like Netflix is thought to be the most likely place to see the trio next.
Captain Slow is out of work. So after selling off his motorcycles, he's apparently raising some funds by selling off his 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed. And it's priced to sell.
James May and Richard Hammond have allegedly turned down a big-money offer from the BBC to return to Top Gear. If they had accepted, it would have meant taping the show without co-host Jeremy Clarkson.
The latest word from the UK has it that the BBC could opt to take a decidedly different route with a post-Clarkson version of Top Gear, with a rotating lineup of hosts. But will Hammond and May be part of the rotation?
A dozen mostly vintage motorcycles from former Top Gear hosts James May and Richard Hammond are crossing the auction block in the UK on April 26. The auction includes a 1970 Triton cafe racer from Hammond and a 1980 Ossa trials bike from May.
