Top Gear Season 18 Debuts on BBC America in April

BBC America has announced that Season 18 of Top Gear, everyone’s favorite series that is ostensibly about motor vehicles but really is so much more awesome than that, will debut here in the US on Monday, April 16. Yes, Top Gear really has run for that many seasons already, believe it or not. I had no idea. But, at any rate, going by the footage in this way-too-brief clip, it still looks as incredibly entertaining and fun ever. Despite the fact that it's a bit older than I thought!

Let’s be honest: I don’t even like cars and I love Top Gear. I have a feeling that I’m not the only person who feels this way either, given how popular the show’s become worldwide over the past few years.  (And just for the record: one of the things I’m going to make sure I do if I ever get crazy famous is try to take the reasonably priced car for a spin. Just so that’s now written down somewhere for the sake of posterity.)

Click through for a look at the brand new BBC Two promo for Season 18, featuring an appearance from Ray Winstone, Richard Hammond at NASCAR, Jeremy Clarkson in a rather dreadful wig, and what appears to be the Stig’s “Italian cousin”.

No word on when we Americans might see Top Gear’s Christmas special in India – an episode that’s now a bit infamous thanks to Clarkson putting his foot in it and insulting basically the entire country – but keep your fingers crossed that we’ll get it eventually.
