The future of Top Gear may be in limbo after BBC dropped Jeremy Clarkson following a physical altercation with a producer, but the plucky motoring show – and Clarkson himself, for that matter – isn’t disappearing from British TVs just yet. Three months after the network put the programme off the air, it has been confirmed that the final two films of Series 22 will be televised as a single extended episode sometime in the near future.

Featuring links filmed in the studio by remaining presenters James May and Richard Hammond, the one-off episode will include two of Top Gear‘s famed used car challenges. The first sees the trio embarking on a classic car journey with a Fiat 124 Spider, Peugeot 304 Cabriolet and MGB GT, performing the usual challenges and breaking down along the way.

The other depicts Clarkson, Hammond and May playing “lifestyle leisure enthusiasts,” spending £250 (RM1,400) on a Vauxhall (Opel) Frontera, Jeep Cherokee and Mitsubishi Shogun Pinin (Pajero iO to you and me), taking them on an adventure and encountering the Stig’s Leisure Activity Cousin in the process. It should be a hilarious, yet slightly poignant end to an era, then.

To whet viewers’ appetites, the Beeb has revealed a trailer for the second film, which we have embedded above. Hijinks, crashes, fistfuls of typical British banter – it looks like Top Gear is going out with a bang.
