A new extended-length trailer for the new “Top Gear” season has been released. The reimagined show debuts Sunday May 29th with an all-new cast.

The new hosts include Chris Evans, American actor Matt LeBlanc (who played Joey on the TV series “Friends”), automotive journalist Chris Harris, Formula 1 racer Eddie Jordan, German racer Sabine Schmitz, car reviewer Rory Reid, and the Stig.

In the new trailer, the hosts can be seen hooning around in high-performance vehicles in various locations around the globe. A few clips include Harris in an Aston Martin Vulcan at the Abu Dhabi GP circuit, an Audi R8 V10 Plus at Laguna Seca, and Reid doing burnouts in a Ford Mustang GT. Other exotic vehicles include a McLaren 675 LT, Ferrari F12 Tdf, an Ariel Nomad, a Dodge Viper, and a Chevrolet Corvette.

The trailer also shows the cast driving purpose-built racecars, classic cars, oddball cars, and off-road vehicles as well. While some of the scenes were show in an earlier trailer, the new trailer features even more organized chaos.

The BBC had to revamp its hit series when James May and Richard Hammond left the show after the network fired Jeremy Clarkson following a “fracas” where he allegedly assaulted one of the show’s producers. The trio has since signed on a new show that will debut on Amazon Prime this fall. Amazon announced today that the new series will be called “The Grand Tour.”
