Former 'Top Gear' Hosts Clarkson, Hammond And May Pictured Filming New Amazon Prime Show

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have given fans a glimpse of their brand-new car show for Amazon Prime.

Clarkson had earlier tweeted "Dawn on a very special day", sending fans into a spin about what might be happening.

And Twitter pretty much went into meltdown...
