Top Gear China to Launch This Year

Apart from the news, Top Gear might just be the biggest thing to ever come from the BBC, spawning local versions from Australia to the U.S. with the original watched by millions around the world. Now another country is set to get in on the irreverent fun, China.

China isn’t big on free speech, however, so don’t expect any off-the cuff rants from a Clarkson-esque personality, insulting other races, cultures or political leaders. (Definitely not political leaders.)

In order not to diminish the impact of the show too much, some antics will still be involved, but as a result the show won’t air until after midnight.

Currently the world’s largest auto market, it looks like sales of DVRs in China are about to hit an all time high too.
