The traditional 'Jeremy in a supercar v James and Hammond on grotty public transport' head-to-head has been dispensed with.

For now - thankfully - they have put up three preview videos to tide us over.
It seems the Top Gear trio have been hard at work producing a Polar special - their most arduous task to date.
