Clarkson and crew start filming new car show

The Top Gear boys are back to their old tricks.

The former presenters of the BBC's Top Gear have started filming their new motoring program for Amazon Prime, and it looks as though the trio will kick things off with a bang.

Jeremy Clarkson took to Twitter to announces the start of filming for the yet-unnamed show, Tweeting, "With a skeleton crew, filming for Amazon Prime's new motoring programme has begun.” That skeleton crew includes former Top Gear mates Richard Hammond and James May, along with several dozen other production members.

But perhaps more importantly, Clarkson's Tweet seems to indicate that we'll finally get to see the supercar shoot between the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 that's we've been promised for several months now. All three cars all line up behind Clarkson, Hammond and May at what looks to be Germany's Nurburgring.

Amazon has yet to announce an on-air date for the new car show, but it's expected to hit the company's Prime video service sometime next year. Consider our interests piqued.
