Matt LeBlanc named as newest Top Gear presenter

By raccars Published

Known mainly for his role in the hugely successful sitcom Friends, Matt LeBlanc has been revealed as the most recent addition to the Top Gear team.

LeBlanc will co-present the popular show as the first non-British host since it first launched in 1977. An avid car fan, LeBlanc has already appeared on the program twice, even setting the fastest track time in the show’s ‘reasonably priced car’ segment, as well as presenting the spin-off Top Gear: The Races, which saw him highlight some of the best moments from the previous 22 series.

Both LeBlanc and Evans have expressed their excitement at working together, given their passion for cars and the likely humorous cultural differences between them. LeBlanc, Evans and the other yet-to-be-confirmed presenters will be hitting TV screens this coming May.
