Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch Takes the Wheel on BBC America’s ‘Top Gear’

Forget how Sherlock survived that nasty fall; will Benedict Cumberbatch be able to survive a drive in a reasonably priced car on Top Gear? The Sherlock star will get behind the wheel in this Monday’s (July 22nd) episode, and BBC America has released a brief teaser previewing his daring race around the track, as well as a series of impressive crashes.

I’m sure Cumberbatch is the highlight for most fans, but the episode will also feature Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May testing out “discreet and sensitive” cars in Spain, as well as track their journey through the country as they encounter ghost towns and mountain passes. Watch the teaser below.

How do you think Cumberbatch will do?

Top Gear airs Mondays at 8:30/7:30c on BBC America.
