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.
Much like the cobbled together final episode of Series 22, Clarkson's final lap did little to capture the spirit of the show we loved so dearly. But how can a single lap encapsulate what made Top Gear so great? It's all in the choice of car.
If you ever wanted to perfectly recreate one of Top Gear's road trip challenges, an infographic is now showing just how much that would cost. It's absolutely not cheap, but you could probably find some places to cut corners in the real world.
Have you ever wanted to be the host of Top Gear? New presenter Chris Evans is accepting 30-second video clips from anyone around the world who might want the job. There's no guarantee that any of these applicants are actually chosen, though.
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?
