The BBC's Top Gear is perhaps the most well-recognized and widely-watched motoring program on earth, and the series' dependence on a hired gun that plies the world's best supercars at the show's test track is equally well-known. This hired gun, commonly referred to as the Stig, came to be almost as popular as each of the show’s three hosts and one of his key virtues was the fact that his identity was a closely guarded secret.

That was until it was found out that the Stig was actually racing driver Ben Collins, who revealed his identify in his self written autobiography.

Now there is a new Stig in town and the guys at Top Gear have put together this brief promo video, complete with a scene making fun at Collins in a not so subtle way.
