Matt LeBlanc tails landing Nasa aircraft in latest Top Gear episode

LeBlanc tests out the world’s fastest-accelerating car, the Dodge Demon.

Matt LeBlanc will test the world’s fastest-accelerating car with a little help from Nasa in the latest Top Gear episode.

In a preview clip LeBlanc takes on the Dodge Demon and is seen speeding down a landing strip as he tails a Nasa ER-2 high-altitude aircraft and attempts to help it land at Armstrong Flight Research Centre in California.

He will also pen a heartfelt love letter to the Citroen 2CV alongside fellow presenter Chris Harris while Rory Reid travels to South Korea to sample some new exciting cars.

Comedians Dara O Briain and Ed Byrne join the presenters in the studio to take on the reasonably fast car challenge.


Top Gear airs on Sunday on BBC2 at 8pm.
