Top Gear has released the first footage of the all-new series, helmed by Chris Evan,s ahead of the show’s premiere in May.

Chris will be joined by Friends star Matt LeBlanc, motorsport guru Eddie Jordan, German racing driver Sabine Schmitz, motoring journalist Chris Harris and TV presenter Rory Reid on the revamped motoring show.

The new team will cover the entire automotive spectrum and bring with them their own unique and individual love of cars on a show the BBC said will appeal to ‘every type of Top Gear viewer from the family who enjoy the entertainment values of the show, to aspirational car lovers and fanatical petrolheads’.

Chris Evans said of his new Top Gear team: “We really do have a bit of everything for everyone. A fellow lifelong petrolhead from the other side of the pond in Matt; a fearless speed-demon in the irrepressible and effervescent Sabine; the encyclopedic, funny and wonderfully colourful character that is EJ; Chris, one of the world’s top no-nonsense car reviewers; and Rory, who simply blew me away in his audition and fully deserves his place on the team.”
