50 Cent: ‘I could save Top Gear… but it would cost them’

50 Cent: 'I could save Top Gear... but it would cost them'

US rapper 50 Cent has revealed he wants to replace Chris Evans on the new Top Gear – but has said it would come at a price.

Speaking to the Daily Star, the car enthusiast said: “I would love to work on Top Gear, I could save that show for sure, but it would cost them.

“There ain’t a car I haven’t owned over the years, my car collection is as good as anybody’s out there.”

The 41-year-old, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, owns a number of Lamborghini Murcielagos, a Ferrari FF and a Bentley Mulsanne.

It seems that the In Da Club singer is missing the old Clarkson, Hammond and May trio, adding: “Top Gear was one of the world’s iconic shows and it’s a shame it came to this.

“The show since the old team left has been unrecognisable and if it don’t get back to where is should be soon then it may never recover.”

Chris Evans quit Top Gear when ratings slumped to a record low of 1.9 million at the end of his first series.

BBC bosses are not expected to replace the lead presenter, with the rest of the crew, including Matt LeBlanc and Sabine Schmitz, carrying on as before.
