Top Gear has been on hiatus since March after an inquiry found one of its presenters, Jeremy Clarkson, responsible for verbally and physically assaulting one of the shows' producers. Since then there has been multiple reports that Clarkson, along with other presenters James May and Richard Hammond, may be hosting a similar show on a rival network or even a streaming service such as Netflix.

The BBC told BuzzFeed News that there will be two films in the special. The press material provided says that one segment features the presenters pretending to be classic car enthusiasts, and that they "set off on an adventure that includes brown beer, breakdowns and a hair raising classic car shows."

The 30-second trailer showcases the second film, which features the trio driving through mud whilst wearing suits.

The second segment follows the presenters as they purchase three SUVs and, according to the press material, “then embark on a series of action-packed challenges."

And, of course, at some point a caravan is destroyed.

According to Top Gear's website, the show will also feature studio links featuring May and Hammond, but not Clarkson.

The BBC has not confirmed when exactly the show will air, but has confirmed that it will be "in the next few weeks."
