Some say that inside his helmet, all he sees is the green digital rain from The Matrix. And that his urine can be used as 93 octane car fuel. All we know is that he’s called The Stig, and he’s being used as promotional material for Saints Row: Gat out of Hell.

The team over at Volition is planning something insane with the driving entity. The Stig is the “tame racing driver” from popular British motoring show Top Gear. He doesn’t say much, and his only task is to drive cars around the Top Gear test track to record lap times. The teaser trailer doesn’t give away much, but if it’s a collaboration between the insane developers at Volition and the destruction-happy production team at Top Gear, we have a feeling it’s going to be over the top.

Set to launch next month, Gat out of Hell, which started off as an expansion to Saints Row IV, is now completely standalone. That means you don’t need to own Saints Row IV to get in on the fight against Satan.
