Other vehicles used in the past include the Chevrolet Lacetti and the Kia Cee'd according to TheSun.com.

The 44-year-old posted a picture of himself with the show's "tame racing driver" The Stig on his Twitter account.

He agreed to do the show to promote his new movie "The Wolverine" set to be released July 26 in the U.S. Jackman appeared at the London premiere of the movie in an expensive Audi R8.

While discussing the film with Event Magazine recently, Jackman said the biggest problem people have with him playing Wolverine in so many films is his height.

"I'm 6 ft. 2 in. and lean but in the books he's 5ft 3in and stocky," said Jackman according to Event. "Part of the bulking-up was to make me look squatter, more Mike Tyson than Hugh Jackman."

Jackman gained 25 pounds of muscle for the role according to IMDB.
