Matt LeBlanc is said to be a huge car nut and was honored to be invited to co-host alongside Chris Evans. The American actor is expected to help draw in more US. viewers, giving Top Gear more international exposure.

The new series is expected to begin on the 8th of May this year. Of course, many fans don’t believe that the show will be able to reach the same heights as it did with the previous trio – Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, who are now working on a similar offering through the Amazon Prime service.
