BuzzFeed news made the suggestion after discovering that a law firm believed to be “closely associated” with Clarkson had registered the trademark for the name.

The former Top Gear trio of Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond announced they had signed a new deal, reportedly worth millions, with Amazon Prime earlier this year.

When asked about the reported new name, an Amazon spokesman said: “Amazon does not comment on speculation.”

The company said at the end of July, that Clarkson, Hammond and May were reuniting for an all-new car show.

Clarkson’s contract with the BBC was not renewed, following a “fracas” with Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon.

Hammond recently told ITV’s This Morning presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: “The point is, an amazing opportunity has come along for us to evolve and reinvent what we do, and we’re all just charged. It’s kind of wonderful, at our stage in life and career, we’ve got the opportunity to do exactly that when, otherwise, let’s be honest, you might not.”

Clarkson was unavailable for comment.
