Fast cars, hard reporting, thrills, spills, and good old-fashioned explosions return in the 18th series of the internationally famous UK hit! Presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. Regularly featuring The Stig: Top Gear's enigmatic, highly evolved and possibly human elite racecar driver with a heart of gold.
The boys are back in their pursuit of the latest and greatest thing on 4 wheels while continuing their fierce rivalries with each other through ever crazier challenges. The stakes only get higher as they take on everything from A-Z, put celebrities through their racing paces, and risk life, limb and tender egos, all in the name of getting the facts, informing the public...and entertaining gearheads and funseekers alike.
BBC Video has announced that on June 12
they will release Top Gear - The Complete Season 18
on DVD in North America. The 3-disc set will include an India Special, per the studio-provided package art shown below. Running 406 minutes, the collection is presented in anamorphic widescreen video, English Dolby Surround 5.1 audio, and English subtitles. Cost is $24.98 SRP.
Sharp-eyed readers will have certainly noticed by now that we haven't mentioned a Blu-ray Disc version of The Complete Season 18
. Every season of this show has had a high-def BD release since the Season 14
set came out. The announcement so far this morning, which we received through the BBC North American distributor Warner Home Video, hasn't included a Blu version of the Season 18
title...but honestly, we believe this is a temporary oversight, and that a Blu-ray version can be expected day-and-date with the DVD set. Where does our confidence come from? Because the BBC America online studio store shows both versions - DVD and Blu - are in the works. Stay tuned and we'll bring you more about that, just as soon as we can!
