Top Gear publisher BBC Worldwide has engaged mobile marketing agency Marvellous Mobile for the campaign, which starts on Saturday.
Press ads for the subscription offer will carry a "text keyword to shortcode" call to action, which will be answered by a Wap link. The first ad will appear in Saturday's Sun, beneath Jeremy Clarkson's motoring column.
Paul Berney, business development director at Marvellous, said: "The Top Gear audience is very technology literate, and is comfortable using mobile interactivity when they're away from their PCs, so mobile can really capitalise on the moment of impulse."
