Top Gear is set to return for a new season this summer and it will be the first without Matt LeBlanc and Rory Reid.

The duo are being replaced by Freddie Flintoff and Paddy McGuinness and now we’re getting our first look at them on the show.

The short teaser clip doesn’t reveal much, but the video’s description says McGuinness decided to try and convince Chris Harris and Flintoff that the “ultimate second-hand family car is, in fact, a hearse.” He then apparently buys a 1995 Daimler hearse £1300 to prove it.

After making some modifications – including adding rally stripes, a rear wing and “lots of power” – the group puts the hearse to the test on a Welsh rally course. In typical Top Gear fashion, this goes horribly wrong as the hearse flips while taking a corner. All three hosts emerge apparently uninjured as Harris officially welcomes McGuinness to Top Gear.
