Interesting, and it ends up with a Honda product made (exclusively) in North Carolina.

Ouch! A £20million DBR1 and an XK120. An Austin Healey 100 also got in the mix.

Ouch!

How great though, to see them actually being driven and not parked on some collection somewhere.

Chris Evans Says The New Top Gear Won't Have Three Hosts

Nice to see they are trying something different rather than just doing a retread with new presenters. I'd be interested to see how it works out.

Sounds like a lot of change just because they need it to be different.

"All Chris Evans, all the time", doesn't sound like a winning strategy to me.

I would be more interested if they just stopped trying to be Top-Gear-But-Different, just let it go, and made a new car show.

Oh, and if it didn't have Chris Evans in it.

They could change the name, change the format, ditch Chris Evans, .... hëll they could even change the broadcaster, say to Amazon Prime or something.

Luckily I'm a big Chris Evans fan. It's clear he realizes he can't rehash the previous format, so I'm actually looking forward to what he's gonna do with it, especially with him being a massive petrol head. I think they should start totally a fresh though which means ditching The Stig. I bet they are only keeping him in because he is such a massive marketing tool.
