Default Top Gear: Season 12

So, Season 12 is around the orner, (mostly first week of nov) and as usual, it is going to be a wonderfull season of madness, races, crashes and outright stupidity!! Cant Wait for it.

Also, As khanak said, Top Gear Australia is out and soon, there will be TG USA. Cant wait for those but still the original TG will be the one to watch!

Yup, and the same for the American version. I would be a lot more interested in the American version if Jay Leno would be presenting it, However Jay turned down the offer saying that Top Gear UK is funded by the govt.(BBC) and therefore can be as unbiased as they want and the same might not be true 100% for the US version. Sponsors will try to poke their noses in matters weather you like it or not.

I know man
They are new
I am waiting for the originals man

The BBC Top Gear UK.
Going to be a blast
I wish Buggatti lets TG race it on the test track.

With many cars like the Panamera , Lambo 4 door and the Ferrari 4 door round the corner i just cant wait
Hope its not just another 6 episode season
but something like 10 episodes.
What say Cyrus?

I doubt that. It wont be more than 7-8 episodes MAX. I read somewhere that TG doesnt want to make more than 14 episodes a year or something. I dont remember where i read it though.

No more than 14 episodes.
Its a crime

To keep us car freaks away from great cars and great humour is simply a crime :(
