A secrect finally cracked: Top Gear's Stig Revealed!

For all car-enthusiasts who watch the famous British show Top Gear, we got a surprise for you today. All Top Gear watchers were wondering for years about the secret driver behind the white helmet.

According to UK's Telegraph, the "White Stig" has apparently ended the mystery, revealing himself as 33 year-old Ben Collins. Collins has raced professionally in everything from NASCAR to LeMans, and most recently served as Agent 007's double for sequences of Quantum of Solace that required fancy wheel work.

It's been such a secret for so long, how did the unveil of silence come to be broken? Collins himself apparently revealed his day job to the owner of an art gallery in Bristol, England when asking for help producing a limited-edition print of The Stig plying his trade.

No confirmation yet from Clarkson, Hammond, May or the producers on this revelation, and the only word out of Top Gear is that they "...never comment on speculation as to who or what The Stig is."

The worryingly thing is, if Top Gear produces decided to do what they did to the original "Black Stig" when he revealed his secret job, that to fire him. If they sadly did that, what color will a new Stig be? Red? Gold? Blue? We could see a change as soon as the next series.
