Trailer: your first glimpse of series 19 of Top Gear!

Trailer grabWell, here’s the news you’ve all been waiting for. Top Gear officially returns to UK screens on Sunday 27 January on BBC Two and BBC HD.

Yes, we’re back with our nineteenth series. We’ll have more info from the entire TG crew as usual on the site in the coming days (they’re rather busy finishing everything), but for now, here’s more on the first show.

First up, Jeremy revisits one of his favourite Top Gear films by attempting to build a car that’s even smaller than the Peel P50, before testing it out on the streets of London and then, finally, in front of the fearsome Dragon’s Den. No word yet whether Fiona Bruce’s bottom makes another appearance.

Meanwhile, James road tests the fearsome new 205mph Bentley Continental GT Speed by taking it out on a British Rally stage, and Richard makes a welcome return to the test track in the sensational new Pagani Huayra (before handing over to a certain tame racing driver).

Oh, and we’ve also got Homeland star and acclaimed redhead Damian Lewis as the Star In The Reasonably Priced Car.

The first trailer has just aired on BBC Two in the UK, and you can see it by clicking on the big arrow below. See you all soon…
