By
Just call him LeBond...Matt LeBond.
Matt LeBlanc is channeling his inner James Bond in the newly released trailer for season 23 of Top Gear and ET has your first look!
In the minute-long teaser, the Friends alum drives onto a gloomy racetrack in the quintessential James Bond car -- Aston Martin -- Aston Martin DB11 to be exact, then stops and explains how the luxury vehicle isn't meant to live on the rubber burning course.
"Narnia had its wardrobe, Bill and Ted had their phone booth, and Star Gate had its…its Star Gate," says the 49-year-old car enthusiast. "Well Top Gear now has its left at hammerhead, that's right, left turn at hammerhead."
Just before peeling off into a time warp, the immortalized race car and a dapper LeBlanc are back on the road accelerating through a tunnel on a scenic mountain in Montenegro, while the Bond theme song plays.
"Now we're talking," as a more polished LeBlanc adjusts his bowtie in the rearview mirror. "Sweet!"
Of course every hero needs a villain, and in this week's episode, LeBlanc takes on co-host Chris Harris and a very wicked Mercedes F 63 AMG. Meanwhile, getting a visit from Green Wing's actress Tamsin Greig where she comically banters with Harris during a race car training sesh.
"Now get out of the f***ing car, and think about how you've been behaving," the Episodes star quipped.
Elsewhere, co-host Rory Reid and professional race driver Sabine Schmitz go supercar hunting on Germany's fearsome Nürburgring race circuit with the help of the VW Golf Clubsport S.
"You are not human! You are not human!" Reid exclaims, cheering on the female German pro-driver after passing 1.1M pounds worth of cars in the circuit.
