Top Gear always seems to have well known American celebrities as guests for it's “Star in a Reasonably Priced Car” segment. (This might be because they realize being on one of the most watched TV shows in the world can really boost your popularity.) In this part of the show a celebrity guest comes on for an interview with Jeremy Clarkson, and gets to race around the Top Gear test track. Then you are compared to other celebrity guests track times on the “Power Lap” board. This is quite an exciting and fun segment and it is always great to see who comes on Top Gear. Notably American celebrities include Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Mark Wahlberg, Andy Garcia, Matt LeBlanc, and even Slash!
For Season 18 of Top Gear the famous Guns N' Roses guitar player went on the show. The Slash interview with Jeremy Clarkson was informative, interesting, and as usual funny. On top of that the guitar player came back for the last episode for Season 18 for an awesome performance of “Jessica” the Top Gear theme song. Check it out!
Top Gear, the wildly popular British car show, released the trailer for Season 18. It shows all the latest mayhem the three hosts, Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond will be getting into in the new Top Gear season.
In Season 18 it looks like there will be some interesting and fun segments. In typical Top Gear fashion there will be a supercar challenge which will feature a Lamborghini Aventador, McLaren MP4-12C and a Noble M600. Richard Hammond will try his hand at racing in NASCAR. (The way it looks in the video, he will actually be in the car in a real race.) Yves “Jetman” Rossy will be featured in the series as well, with his incredible homemade and hand-built jetpack. Ray Winstone, the British actor, will be making an appearance. The new season will take also take the hosts to China to test Chinese cars. There is also going to be a Christmas special in India.
Season 18 should be everything that you expect from Top Gear, which is car craziness packed into 1 hour episodes.
