Those of us with access only to BBC America will have to wait a bit longer, unless, of course, we opt to watch it other ways. Which we wouldn’t, because technically that’s not legal.
Season 18 promises to be a good one, as evidenced by the mega-gallery of stills passed on to us from the folks at Top Gear.
From what we can tell, Richard goes stock car racing, with a little help from Juan Pablo Montoya, Jezza drives Brutus against a Blower Bentley and James tries desperately to understand what AC/DC’s Brian Johnson is saying.
As you’d expect from Top Gear, there are supercars galore, including the Lamborghini Aventador (their “Supercar of the Year, 2011”), the McLaren MP4-12C and the Noble M600.
There are a few obligatory explosions, as well, and we can tell that at least one caravan (our travel trailer) was harmed in the filming of this series.
Giving the season a truly international flair, the Stig’s Chinese cousin makes a cameo appearance, as does his well-dressed Italian relative.
If the stills aren’t enough to hold you until Sunday, you can find the season 18 trailer video here.
