When Amazon picked up the Top Gear crew for Prime, it was headline-making news around the world. After all, the show was a juggernaut for the BBC.
Top Gear had an estimated global reach of 350 million, making the 2013 Guinness World Records as the most widely watched factual TV program in the world.
Today, Jeremy Clarkson tweeted that production is on:
Where are they, and what are they filming?
The Verge had a good guess: “It looks like we’re finally going to get the ‘Great Hypercar Showdown‘ that was promised near the end of the hosts’ run on Top Gear. Throughout their final season, the trio teased a showdown between the Ferrari LaFerrari, the McLaren P1, and the Porsche 918 Spyder.”
Will the Top Gear guys be getting the show of their dreams to kick off their new as-yet-to-be-titled Amazon series? We’ll all be watching. The new show is due in 2016.
Until then, following Clarkson’s Twitter feed is probably a safe bet for updates. After all, he’s got to earn that $250 million that Jeff Bezos is paying him one way or another.
