Top Gear, in case you don’t know, is a British TV show in which Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May review cars and other motor vehicles. It is extraordinarily popular because of its nifty visuals and the all-around sophisticated scenic style, but its presenters are known to occasionally throw about random insults or otherwise controversial comments. No matter what you think of the content, it’d be hard to argue with the coolness of the looks and sounds. Watch the trailer for the current season (that would be the 21st) below, if you want to find out more.

We sourced the picture from Picturescar, we do not own the rights. Equally, we have no idea who does. If you do, let us know.
