Top Gear Is Coming to the MotorTrend App On August 30
Plus a MotorTrend-produced, all-new American Top Gear Series this Fall
Maybe it's The Stig. Maybe it's the raw humor of Clarkson, Hammond, and May. Maybe it's the lure of the luxurious and not-so-luxurious vehicles themselves. Whatever your motivation—and with a worldwide audience of 350 million, it's safe to say you're not alone—if you want to see more of the landmark series Top Gear, we've got you covered. Check this out. Starting August 30, when you fire up the MotorTrend App, you'll find virtually every episode of the classic Top Gear U.K. (yes, including every Clarkson-Hammond-May era episode) available for the app's U.S. and Canada subscribers, plus much, much more.
Everything gets started on Friday, August 30, with a three-day mini marathon of your favorite Top Gear episodes on MotorTrend TV as well as the entire Top Gear back catalog of seasons 2 through 25 for subscribers.

- Top Gear U.K. India special
- Three seasons (19 episodes in all) of Top Gear: Extra Gear
