Season 12 Synopsis: The world's biggest car show returns with a crash, a bang and an overwhelming smell of burning when Jeremy, Richard and James buy second-hand trucks and turn their hands to being truck drivers - which turns out to be a lot harder than they thought.

The boys travel to the USA to take three new generation big-engine “muscle” cars on an epic road trip from San Francisco to the heart of Utah; they are challenged to drive from the heart of Switzerland to the North West coast of England on just one tank of fuel; and James travels to the frozen North to discover why the Finns are such good racing drivers. All the tried-and-tested Top Gear favorite segments return too, including the Stig, the news, the “cool wall” and the “Star in the Reasonably Priced Car,” which in this series features chat show legend Michael Parkinson, London Mayor Boris Johnson, musical legend Tom Jones and Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg.
