This year’s series of Top Gear has been the triumphant return to form after last year’s false start. The presenters are likeable, entertaining and informative. And most importantly, they are all extremely passionate about vehicles, and it shows on-screen.
Chris Harris’s enthusiasm is infectious when he pushes the car he loves to its limits like the Ferrari FXX K and the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrophilia.
We can’t imagine how he reacts and when he gets behind the wheel of the Chiron, but you can guarantee it will plant the enormous smile on his face. This week’s episode has been one of our most-anticipated, well, because the beastly Bugatti Chiron will be making its first TV appearance.
We were hoping the 1,479-hp hypercar would feature in The Grand Tour, and that sadly didn’t happen. The second series of the Amazon series isn’t due to start until later this year, and Top Gear will have beaten them by a few months.
Either way, we are sure Chris Harris will do the Chiron justice, even if he doesn’t get to max out its top speed. When the Veyron made its Top Gear debut 12 years ago, the team staged the memorable race to London with Clarkson in the Veyron against Hammond and May in the Cessna plane.
According to the show synopsis, it looks like a new show will be honoring the tradition, pitting Chris Harris in the Chiron against LeBlanc and the roster of money-no-object transport solutions in the race across the Arabian Peninsula.
We even get to see LeBlanc riding the Ducatti 1299 Superleggera in the trailer – Clarkson’s disdain for the bikes meant they were practically banned from featuring in the show before.
