Let's cut right to the chase: "Top Gear" presenter Jeremy Clarkson answered a tweet and announced that the "Top Gear" Season 22 release date is in December and that there will be a total of 13 episodes in the season. However, while Clarkson is certainly a knowledgeable source, he is far from being the most reliable. According to fan site TopGearBox, Jeremy Clarkson had previously made a similar tweet for "Top Gear" Season 21, which ended up to be off by more than two months. Also, let's not forget that Clarkson also sent a similar tweet back in October that "Top Gear" Season 22 would begin in January.

Unfortunately, BBC has yet to reveal any official details regarding the upcoming season. However, a lot of details regarding the upcoming season had already leaked. Of course, the most infamous Season 22 filming incident of all was the angry protest against the Top Gear production team during the filming of their Christmas special in Argentina. Apparently, while the three presenters were traveling across the country's gorgeous Route 40 Patagonian Highway, locals had a serious issue against a Porsche 928 driven by Jeremy Clarkson, which had a number plate that referred to the Falklands War.

According to "Top Gear" producer Andy Wilman, the H982 FKL plate had not been deliberately chosen and it was "most definitely" not a stunt. What's more, the show's cars had to be abandoned by the roadside and the crew escorted to the airport after being pelted with stones. While "Top Gear" BBC's drama in Argentina definitely made international headlines, we have barely the surface of what's in store for "Top Gear" Season 22.

"Top Gear" tipsters at TopGearBox have compiled a number of awesome photos and videos during "Top Gear" Season 22 filming and production. First, Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond were spotted aboard a classic Riva speedboat in Venice. Apparently, the crew will be shooting an epic Siena to Rome challenge featuring Jeremy and Richard. Jeremy will be driving an Alfa Romeo 4C and Richard will pilot a C7 Stingray.

Other super car tests to look forward to in the upcoming season includes an obligatory McLaren P1 Vs. Porsche 918 Spyder challenge as well as a special LaFerrari review by James May. Jeremy Clarkson was also seen testing a BMW i8. Additionally, Clarkson was seen in a red C7 Corvette Stingray convertible as well.

It's not all about supercars at "Top Gear." More recently, Top Gear was sighted at Vancouver, Canada. Apparently, the hosts will be traversing the South Okanagan and Boundary Regions of the expansive British Columbia in a Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV. 

Another hilarious "Top Gear" Season 22 episodes to look forward to involves a homemade ambulance challenge. A Porsche 944 with gulf livery is seen with a number of curious modifications that will supposedly make it into a suitable ambulance vehicle. Another ambulance is Jeremy Clarkson's beloved P45 micro-car. The final ambulance is a Chevy van with a side panel that reads "Nuclear Waste Disposal."

But what has the Stig been up to? There are hilarious new photos of the Stig taking the public transit in St. Petersburg, Russia. This has got to be the most uncomfortable we've ever seen the Stig, although we can't be certain if the Stig even knows what discomfort means. Apparently, "Top Gear" Season 22 will feature a race between a car, a bicycle, a boat, and public transportation at the beautiful Russian City.

 However, that isn't nearly the most outrageous thing that "Top Gear" has planned for the latest season. According to TopGearBox, Richard Hammond apparently strapped himself to the top of a bi-plane. Oh Christ, how could that ever end well?

Although we cannot confirm when is the exact "Top Gear" Season 22 air date, Jeremy Clarkson did drop a date on Twitter: we will lightly draw a circle around the month of December. Stay tuned as we learn more in the weeks ahead!
