Jeremy Clarkson ‘Had a Bit of an Accident’ While Filming New Show

It looks like we have something to look forward to when Jeremy Clarkson’s new show debuts on Amazon.

The former Top Gear presenter recently tweeted that he “had a bit of an accident while filming” accompanied with a photo of a car that looks like it has been thoroughly destroyed. Maybe an accident is an understatement for the carnage represented in the image, which shows the engine exposed, metal bent and broken and the front bumper and license plate wrapped up and facing the wrong way.

Other than what Clarkson tweeted, there aren’t any other details of the accident, which occurred in Barbados. But something tells us it was all caught on film and will likely air in an upcoming episode of the new show. The new show started filming last year and still doesn’t have an official name.

Meanwhile, the new Top Gear will have a plethora of new hosts with Chris Evans at the helm, joined by Matt LeBlanc, Sabine Schmitz and others.

  • Well, you told me I have a plethora. And I just would like to know if you know what a plethora is. I would not like to think that a person would tell someone he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora.

  • Ok. I’ll be the first nerd to bite, though I’m not fantastic at components. My initial guess is that it’s a truck or SUV.
    * Look at those tires. What road car would have those tires. They’re practically knobbies. Knobby Lite?
    * The air intake has been replaced with an after-market piece. I’m pretty sure that also means it’s naturally aspirated.
    * The radiator is kind of beefy, but that’s not much to go on.
    * That bottle in the front looks like the brake fluid reservoir on my 1997 Saab 900 2.3, which is one of the early GM models, so it could be a GM vehicle.
    * I can’t tell if it’s a V6 or V8, but it is a V something.
    * It is rear wheel drive, so definitely not a low-end ride.

    My guess: Late 90’s Chevy S10.

  • O.o

    I have a plethora that your a jackass… How’s that? Jackass

    I wouldn’t think S10 just cause those marker lights on the bumper don’t look familiar as from an S10. But who knows. For sure is some sort of SUV, guess we’ll all have to watch to find out! I’m excited for this show to start Top Gear was the best car show on tv. Sucks I’ll have to get a subscription to Amazon tv or whatever it is to see it but I can’t wait none the less…
