For more than a decade, we’ve followed them around the world. Vietnam. The Makgadikgadi and the Kalahari. Bolivia’s “Death Road.” The North Pole and the Transfăgărășan Highway. Starting August 30, Top Gear is coming to MotorTrend—with 24 seasons of classic Top Gear UK (yes, including all the Clarkson-Hammond-May years) in the U.S. and Canada.
Available exclusively on the MotorTrend App, the Ultimate Top Gear Collection launches with 170 episodes of Top Gear UK spanning season 2 through 25, the Top Gear UK India Special, and three seasons of Top Gear: Extra Gear. Plus, you’ll also enjoy episodes 1-5 of the Best of Top Gear compilation, a MotorTrend exclusive.
Before you can finish binging all that, more Top Gear-related shows you know and love will be added to the collection. Every Tuesday we’ll roll out more content, including episodes from seasons 1 and 2 of Richard Hammond’s Crash Course and James May’s Cars of the People. With the MotorTrend App you’ll have access to more than 240 hours of Top Gear, all available to stream at any time, plus all your favorite MotorTrend and Velocity shows for just $4.99 a month.
During Labor Day weekend, we’re airing a three-day mini marathon of your favorite Top Gear UK episodes on MotorTrend TV from 8 p.m. to midnight ET. MotorTrend TV will also air one episode of Top Gear UK every Tuesday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning September 3.
“Our marriage with the Top Gear franchise is made in car heaven,” said Alex Wellen, global president and general manager, MotorTrend Group. “As the leader in automotive entertainment, MotorTrend is excited to embrace the world’s #1 automotive entertainment show, and to bring fans greater access to Top Gear’s unique stories and larger-than-life personalities. We encourage everyone who enjoys humor, adventure, travel, speed and, of course, some truly cool cars to join us on this unique ride.”
You’ll want to binge the Ultimate Top Gear Collection as soon as you can, because MotorTrend and the BBC are bringing you an all-new American version of Top Gear. Casting for the hosts is happening now and will be announced soon, so get to MotorTrend’s Facebook and Instagram pages and tell us who you want to see as the hosts of the next Top Gear.
