The Nine Network has announced the new presenters who will front a revamped series of Top Gear Australia specials, the Herald Sun reports.
The network managed to snare the rights to the highly successful British series along with the local remake late last year, which were both previously owned by SBS.
Australian comedian and actor, Shane Jacobson, best known for his performance in the movie Kenny, will host Nine's version of the show produced by Freehand.
"As a boy from the western suburbs of Melbourne, I've always had a passion for cars."
"I wasn't the guy at the set of lights whistling out of the car and doing burnouts, I wasn't the guy at the illegal street drags, but I am the guy who's always been keen on cars."
Jacobson is a keen motoring enthusiast, who has competed in several Dutton Car Rallies and the celebrity race curtain-raiser to the Australian Formula One Grand Prix in Melbourne.
"I like to drive cars and I like to drive them fast under controlled circumstances so this, for me, is just the ultimate gig," Jacobson added.
Also new to the team is the editor-in-chief of the Top Gear Australia magazine, Ewen Page.
They will join journalist and racing driver, Steve Pizzatti, who returns after presenting the series when it was back on the public broadcaster.
After the first two series struggled to perform to the same standards of the original, Nine will play it safe by only committing to a number of specials.
