As Chris Evans and Matt LeBlanc take over the nation's favourite driving programme, we take a look back at Top Gear's best moments.
Bugatti Veyron vs. Eurofighter
In his first test drive of the Bugatti Veyron, Richard Hammond races against a £67million military aeroplane - the Eurofighter Typhoon. Richard 'The Hamster' Hammond had only just recovered from a high-speed crash the year before, but the presenter showed no fear as he reached speeds of up to 196mph in the challenge.
Caravan in flames
Clarkson, Hammond and May's contempt for caravans was well documented throughout the series. No better was this displayed than when they set one on fire during a weekend away with the much forgotten Top Gear dog. The trio showed no remorse, much to the horror of their neighbouring campers.
World's most dangerous road
Never short of hair-raising stunts, one particularly nail-biting scene came during the group's journey through the Bolivian rainforest. On travelling along the treacherous Yungas Road - nicknamed Death Road - Jeremy Clarkson was forced to pass on the outside of an oncoming car. Facing certain death, the presenter managed to avoid the 2,000 foot sheer-drop on one side.
Graffitied cars in the Bible Belt
In the presenters' continued quest for controversy, no-one was safe. Very often putting themselves at great risk, their trip to America's deep south turned nasty when they decided to decorate each other's vehicles with antagonistic slogans. Not for the first time, the camera crew had to step in to avoid matters getting worse.
The Stig is revealed
As much remembered for its traditions and self-made icons as its outrageous antics, the mysterious Stig remained a hallmark of the show for years. The nation watched with bated breath as the masked driver was revealed to be Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher in series 13. Of course, it hadn't really been him all along, and the Stig is set to re-emerge in all his anonymity in the latest incarnation of the programme.
With the new show already making headlines before its debut, for better or for worse, it's safe to say we can expect equally great moments from the LeBlanc and Evans outfit.
