Season ten features Formula One racers, a contest between a fighter jet and the Bugatti Veyron, a battle between bio-fuelled cars, an African safari, a challenge to create amphibious vehicles and a visit from Academy Award-winning speed-demon, Helen Mirren. Top Gear, season ten premieres Monday, February 25, 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
