The 25th series of Top Gear has started filming, the BBC has announced.

Matt LeBlanc and Chris Harris have travelled to the More og Romsdal region of north-west Norway to take the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo and Ferrari GTC4 Lusso for a spin.

The first picture from the production shows the duo standing in front of a car with mountains in the background as Harris drapes an arm over LeBlanc’s shoulder, while pointing at him with the other hand.

The new series of the motoring show will start on BBC Two in the spring of 2018.

The 24th series of the show, fronted by LeBlanc, Harris and Rory Reid after Chris Evans bowed out, ended in April.
