Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are going on tour. And there’s not a caravan in sight. Instead the preferred mode of transport at today’s press launch of Top Gear Live is a bespoke, black liveried tank.

In typical Top Gear style, the three motoring presenters stunned drivers and saluted fans as they thundered across London’s Tower Bridge to mark the capital as the debut venue for its UK and world tour.

For eight days at two venues - [30 October - 2 November] at London’s Earls Court and [13-16 November] at Birmingham’s NEC - Jezza, Hamster and Captain Slow will host Top Gear Live at the MPH The Prestige and Performance Motor Show.

During 10 separate performances at each venue more than 95,000 car fans can watch the team unleash automotive mayhem, take on crazy challenges, preside over breathtaking stunts and engage in hilarious motoring tomfoolery during each 75-minute live action show. Even The STIG will be there to show them how it’s done.

Home to more than 200 of the fastest cars on the planet, this year’s £30million MPH supercar-fest is scheduled to feature an A-Z of automotive exotica from the likes of Alfa Romeo, Ariel, Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Caparo, Farbio, Ferrari, Gumpert, Jaguar, Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, Lotus, Maserati, McLaren, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Pagani, Porsche, Rolls-Royce, Shelby, Spyker, and TVR.
