It is hard to imagine a time when Top Gear wasn’t around. The Uk-based motoring show has become a staple in pop future today, and has even spawned many sister series’ in countries across the globe.

But the original trio of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May still remain the original bunch of petrol head weirdo’s we’ve come to know and love – even now in their 21st season!

Even though the sneak peak trailer is only 11 seconds long, and mostly features Jeremy looking rather bored and annoyed about something, it still makes us want to see more.

Some sources has also confirmed that they array of different cars we’ll se on the she this season, is quite impressive. These include the 2015 Volkswagen GTI, the super sexy McLaren P1 and a lot of V8 super cars.

The trio will also be road tripping on a budget across Thailand and Burma and attend wacky auto shows like the microcar auto show in the UK.

While no word is out yet on when us South Africans can expect season 21 to hit out screens, we’re guessing (hoping) that we are not far behind the UK – which will start screening season 21 on February 2nd.

So, Top Gear fans, check out the short (but funny) teaser clip for the much anticipated season 21:

Noble M600 Set for April Launch 29

Posted by Alex Ion in Alcon, Automotive News, BBC Top Gear, M600, Noble, TC on 01 29th, 2011

Noble has finally unveiled the M600, which will begin production soon and is expected to be on the road by this April. The car seems pretty much the same as the one shown in 2009.  The development stages of the vehicle had been really intense, with test runs covering entire the east-to-west stretch of the US. At home in the UK, the car was given full wind tunnel courses to evaluate the aerodynamics.

The M600 is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4 L V8 engine producing 650 hp (485 kW / 659 PS) and 604 lb-ft (818 Nm) of torque. This heavy duty engine is mid-mounted to give the car a low centre of gravity, which means better handling. A 6-speed manual transmission distributes power to the wheels.

The car features the Alcon braking system with 380mm front / 350mm rear discs. It accelerates from 0-60mph in 3.0 seconds matching most supercars around the world. The car has a top speed of 225 mph or 362 Km/h.

Carbon composite materials are widely used for the body parts, held together by a tubular space frame chassis – making the car weigh only1250 kg (2, 755 lb).

Full traction control is provided which can be regulated by the driver.

There are 3 driving modes to choose from – the comfort mode uses only 450 bhp (336 Kw/456 PS) and the throttle response is also gentle, the track mode frees up another 150 hp (112 kW / 152 PS) and reduces the TC interference and lastly the race mode uses all of the 650 horses that the engine has to offer and quickens throttle response. Pricing and due date are yet to be known.
