Top Gear returns to TV on Sunday January 26, and there’s a new trailer to whet the appetites of the viewers. As you might expect, it’s riddled with some of the very latest, coolest metal (and carbon fibre).
So, what cars can you expect to see in series 28? We’ve combed through the 76-second trailer, through every split-second jump cut, to dig them out.
They start with a record-setting all-electric racer: the Volkswagen ID-R. Then there are teaser shots of a Porsche Taycan and Ford Mustang. Flashes of McLaren Speedtail, Porsche Taycan and BMW M8 go by, before we cut to the Volkswagen going hell-for-leather around the Portimao circuit.
After the ID.R, we cut to a very different racer: Subaru Impreza once driven by Colin McRae.
Then, a race between the McLaren Speedtail and an F35 fighter jet. Crikey…
Would it be a Top Gear trailer featuring Chris Harris if there weren’t skid shots? The Porsche Taycan, BMW M8 and Ariel Atom 4 all get out of shape. Then we see the new Porsche 911 put up against the Aston Martin Vantage on-track, with the help of Damon Hill.
Back to Dunsfold, the M8 is being pursued by a sliding Aston Martin DB11 and a Bentley Continental.
Blink and you’ll miss a flash of a sliding Renault Sport Megane Trophy R. And there we have it, (some of) the cars of Top Gear season 28.
In alphabetical order, then:
- Ariel Atom 4
- Aston Martin DB11
- Aston Martin Vantage
- Bentley Continental GT
- BMW M8
- Ford Mustang
- Porsche 911
- Porsche Taycan
- McLaren Speedtail
- Renault Megane Trophy R
- Volkswagen ID.R
Quite a roster. Tune in next Sunday to see more.
