Top Gear Series 21 teaser includes McLaren P1, Mercedes 6×6, and Alfa Romeo 4C

top gear series 21 teaser includes mclaren p1 mercedes 6x6 alfa romeo 4c 2 long

The BBC 2’s Top Gear, the world’s most-watched television show, returns for its 21st Series this Sunday, at the exact same time as the 2014 XLVIII Super Bowl. And I can tell you which one I am going to be watching: Top Gear.

In the all-new, second trailer, we see Clarkson, Hammond, and May are up to some wacky hijinks, as usual. Clarkson drives a McLaren P1, May gets dropped into a river, and Hammond drives the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 by some lovely ladies.

Just a few series ago, I worried that my beloved Top Gear had jumped the shark. Looking at this video, though, I think the boys are back in a serious way. And I am very, very pleased.

What high-flying mayhem lies in store for us over the 21st Series? We’ll have to just wait and see.

Want to know which Top Gear episodes I think are best? Check out my list of the Top 10 Best Top Gear Episodes.
