I just found this blurb about Series 18, posted on Wikipedia. If anybody else has more info from the recent magazine article, please fill us in!!
In the January 2012 edition of Top Gear Magazine, it featured a preview of what to expect in series 18. It included a piece where Richard Hammond drives a NASCAR safety car for a real race, later going on to drive an actual NASCAR race car. The magazine also featured a part of some of the power tests to expect, including Jeremy Clarkson driving a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Edition, a Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster and a Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale. Hammond meanwhile will drive a 2012 BMW M5 F10, and May will have a Vauxhall Corsa Nurburgring Edition. Another feature is going to China to test drive Chinese cars, Italy in 3 super-cars, Lamborghini Aventador, Noble M600 and a McLaren MP4-12C. In the pictures from the January 2012 edition of Top Gear Magazine, the presenters were standing next to a Morgan Three Wheeler, Caterham R500 and a KTM X-BOW which might have something to do with Series 18.
