Over the past 13 years, the Gumball 3000 has been in the news for plenty of good and bad reasons, and they are set to party on the road once again.

This years event will start from London, England on May 26th, and amidst all the gas guzzling exotics, it will also have a green theme. The 2011 event will feature around 20 electric concept and production cars. So in these energy conscious times, even the Gumball is showing a bit of responsibility.

But don’t expect a watered-down version of the usual Gumball mania, because plenty of exotic cars and celebs will be taking part. This years event will star some well-known names such as singer Eve and TV actor David Hasselhoff.

The event will be a European trek, going from London to Istanbul.
