Ever wonder what it would be like to trek across Europe in the best, most awesome, fastest cars that Europe had to offer? What about the cars that the Natives drive? Netflix has come up with a new Netflix Original that is said to rival Top Gear.

You know the show with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May, and the Stig? Where they zoom through Europe in fun cars, they track competing cars, and they have some good old fun when it comes to horsepower.

But this isn’t Top Gear– This new Netflix Original? Big Continental Road Trip. The new original has three, one hour long episodes in season one on Netflix right now that you can watch.

So how is it different from Top Gear? There are no Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May, or the Stig to explain, assess, and drive these beautifully engineered masterpieces.

Instead you get celebrity chef from The Great British Bake off… Just a moment– A celebrity chef? Giving your the run down finely made engineering? Yep! Meet Paul Hollywood.

Let us rewind back to 2015 where Paul began racing Aston Martin Vantage GT4’s. His first race was for Beechdean AMR in Britcar at Silverstone. He placed second. He went on to race at Le Mans in GT Cup where he won.

So needless to say, Paul Hollywood isn’t just about whipping up cupcakes. He is also whipping cars around a race track and he is good at it. This time he won’t be whipping anything around, not the track nor the kitchen.

Paul will be taking his time to make his way around Europe to chat with the folks from the native land about the cars and the terrain. He will present to you the best and the worst, the good and the bad, and the pretty and the ugly.

The show will sum up European engineering to the best of their knowlegde– For the people, by the people, so to speak. The show will give you a unique look, a presentation if you will of these cars roaming Europe.

In the show you’ll see cars ranging from a Fiat 500 to Supercars and prototypes of Paganis. You see each nation and their cars as Paul makes his way across Europe in this three hour series.

If you’re an avid Top Gear fan then this show is for you. Check it out here on Netflix now! Let us know what you think!
