Default TOP GEAR returns with Season 17! *UPDATE* Now on air

According to FinalGear.com, the new season of TG will start on June 12th So what can we expect from season 17? I am most excited about cars like the Aventador, Huarya and some great road challenges. Also, SLS vs 458 vs MP4-12C vs LP560 is what I want

Ah-ha! Now that's something to really look forward to. Can't wait to see what JC would do with all that POWERRRRRRRR in the Aventador and the Huayra. And I really really want to see the new McLaren and the new M5, although I doubt the latter will have been released in time for them to test.

I too read about TG season 17 starting in June (wiki) which goes well with their history of airing two seasons in a year.
Excited about it; really want them to check out on new Lambo.

Now thats a news... From what i've read on the InterWeb, the boys were spoted driving across the UK using a Nissan Leaf and a Peuegot iOn.

I expect a good and funny cross country shootout of electronic cars.

Finally some news on Season 17. I have been waiting for it the moment season 16 got over. Will it be on TV simultaneously or will we have to wait here in India? I heard top gear was being shown in India on BBC channel. I have not seen a single episode till now on television. Hope we can the catch the series on TV itself rather than downloading from net.

Apart from those supercars which they have to cover, I hope they have at least 1 episode as a special episode covering some exotic destination. Their British humour is fun to watch

Not sure if they will AIR it in the same time as UK. But i did see the Top Gear Polar Special a few days back on the BBC Channel on my Airtel HD DTH,

Also a little birdy named Autoblog just told us

For everything else, we'll just have to wait (less than a month now, mind you) to find out.

Great news ! Too bad we will still have to download it as they are still airing season 15 on BBC entertainment India.

So its going to be on BBC ? And does anyone know whats the show timings ? I have become a BIG fan of Top Gear watching just couple of their videos & TDs. They are brilliant.

This is perfect timing for me. My exams finish on 10th June and 12th June gives me Top Gear.
And of course, we can expect the latest hypercars, and the wackiest challenges. I'm wondering what kind of cheap car challenge they will have this time. Any ideas guys?

Wow!! This is great news indeed! I believe, BBC enteratainment, on which Top gear is aired in India will not broadcast the season 17 simultaneously as the last time I saw, they were still hovering around in an episode of season 15.

Anyhow, can't wait to see them in action with their epic road madness!

The first episode will probably have the mp4-12c as JC was spotted driving one in TG track , huarya is unlikely as Pagani has not let anyone drive it till now , James May drove the lambo aventador recently in the new TG UK mag so expect that in the new series.
