“I can’t give too much away, but the next one is interesting because it’s actually quite heavy for cars,” May said radio times.

“We have three very interesting cars and a lot of stuff. I don’t want to scare you by saying this, but it’s basically a car show the next one,” he added.

“Someone said some of our specials are a bit like a travel show crossed with a sitcom I guess and the cars are almost there as an excuse or to provide comedy, but this one, which is coming up in Scandinavia, is quite a movie about serious car wars that just warns you.”

May also said he was thrilled that he and his co-stars had the chance to be in their element for this Scandinavian special.

May is currently starring in the travel series James May: Our man in Italy and recently spoke of his desire to slow down, hinting at his potential retirement.
