Gold-plated million-pound supercars – tick. Urban car vs. bike vs. hovercraft challenge – tick. Weird used car challenge – tick. Yes, this is the latest series of Top Gear, set to arrive on your screens from January 25.

The last series of Top Gear may have been in the news for all the wrong reasons following claims of racism in the two-part Argentina road trip special, but hopefully as the show enters its 22nd series, it might have learned its lesson…

Coming in the new series viewers can find out which supercar is the best to use if you want to round up 4,000 Australian cows, which mode of transport to use to cross St Petersburg fastest and which oversized pick up is the best at climbing a snowy Canadian mountain to rescue a frozen Richard Hammond.

Meanwhile, helpful consumer advice comes in the form of reviews of the Ferrari LaFerrari, the Lamborghini Huracan and the bizarre-looking BMW i8 supercar-hybrid.

Take a look at the short preview of the show in the video above.
