LONDON, November 19, 2010 - 2entertain is revving up ready for the release on 22nd November of the
latest DVD from Top Gear which will be titled Top Gear Apocalypse.

Top Gear (
tinkers Richard Hammond and James May have always wondered about what
motoring would be like in a post apocalyptic world and now in the new
2entertain DVD they get to find out.

Top Gear: Apocalypse (
gives all the tips anyone could ever
need to survive in the event of the ultimate calamity, and as usual it will
also help to answer some of those vitally important questions which only the
Top Gear presenters are willing to address. So for anyone who has ever
wondered what driving will be like in a post apocalyptic world which has been
blown to bits by nuclear bombs or destroyed by a massive comet, then Hammond
and May can give all the answers in this brand new, and incredibly cheerful,
Top Gear DVD (

Filled with the usual madcap antics and motoring mayhem, where even
something as mundane as the MOT can become a futuristic nightmare, Richard
and James are here to show how it's done. In the aftermath of a nuclear war,
when millions of tons of soot and ash are thrown up into the atmosphere
creating a nuclear winter, James asks, "How on earth would you drive to
work?" Another important question which the TG guys seek to answer on the DVD
is - "Which would be the best car to have one of your very last drives in if
you were stuck in a post apocalyptic world and there was only one barrel of
petrol left?"

James and Richard also get to drive each other's car … although as this
is Top Gear, James is sitting in Richard's car and Richard is sitting in
James' car with both cars being raced using remote control.
