Porsche managed to introduce a lot of improvements with the 2017 Boxster, making a better car on paper. Yet in practice, Top Gear host Chris Harris thinks the better Boxster isn’t as good to drive anymore.
Hard to guess, but I’m betting on the original 1930s Type 35 on the right.
Get ready to have your feed clogged with the sound of the Bugatti Chiron’s sixteen cylinders mushing car journalists into their leather-lined bucket seats.
The LaFerrari FXX K is very fast and very expensive and very red and blah blah who cares just my god listen to the sound it makes when you shift gears.
This Sunday the new season of Top Gear starts in the U.S., and I can’t imagine anyone just jumping into and watching something like that without proper preparation. That’s why I took it upon myself to cross the ocean, find the Top Gear set, and corner each of the three hosts and ask them the important questions. The…
When I went to Surrey, England to visit the Top Gear set and talk to the mighty triumvirate of hosts, I was a bit disappointed to learn that I would not be allowed to drive anything on the famous Top Gear track. Something about me being an idiot, and insurance, or something. But I got to do the next best thing: have…
Holy hallelujah, the car show is back. For a while there, my Sundays were spent looking forward to Game of Thrones and Westworld, sadly bereft of the plucky British motoring show that’s generally accepted as the automotive canon. I am now happy to report that Top Gear is once again back on the list of Things To Watch…
Being excited for a new season of Top Gear is very much like being excited for the holidays: you know great stuff is coming your way, you just aren’t quite certain of what it might be. This new Top Gear trailer makes me feel exactly that way.
Top Gear returns next month, rejuvenated again, again, and there’s more good news—that silly ‘Star in a Rallycross Car’ segment is dead. It’s been replaced with a Toyota GT86. Things sound good.
The revived version of the BBC’s Top Gear without its old trio, whose new show got its own mixed reviews, had a tough time leading up to and throughout its return season. But with Chris Evans gone and trailers showing Chris Harris and Rory Reid taking bigger roles, this may be the revamp we’ve been waiting for.
After almost forgetting about the season finale of The Grand Tour last night, I yet again slipped into the altered state of life where there’s no new episodes of old-Top Gear content or new-Top Gear content and my mind wanders, at times dangerously, adrift. And then Chris Harris was spotted in a Bugatti Chiron.
The new BMW M2 is widely acclaimed to be the best BMW M-car currently on the market. Chris Harris is widely acclaimed to be the best automotive reviewer on the market. Top Gear... well, it’s had a few headaches, but it seems to be working on things.
While we’ve all been distracted by whether its trio of ex-hosts’ new show is worth watching or not, the latest incarnation of Top Gear is still there, plodding along in the background. They’ve got a new season soon, and thank goodness, there’s not a single appearance of Chris Evans at all in the trailer.
Chris Harris in the Aston Martin Vulcan is arguably the best thing to come out of new Top Gear. I can’t think of anything better.
In a new Top Gear video, our favorite sideways-sliding British auto journalist, Chris Harris, takes what is arguably the best BMW M car currently for sale and pits it against the awesome 1M Coupe.
There are exactly two types of TV shows about cars: sensationalized “build” dramas set to slow-motion footage of sparks, and Top Gear knockoffs. The latter “boy’s trip” motif tends to be a little more bearable so I’m excited to see what my friends have in store for the third season of /Drive on NBC Sports.
Why would Chris Harris want the new Porsche 911 R to fall flat? Perhaps it’s because his Top Gear co-host Matt LeBlanc got to drive it for the show before him. Perhaps it’s because of the ridiculous hype surrounding the car. Well it’s too bad, because it turns out not even a dogleg manual 7-speed V12 Aston Martin can…
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is kind of pivotal to the manufacturer’s lineup, and Top Gear presenter and Jalopnik alumnus Chris Harris took it out for a spin recently. He loved the car overall, but get this—he dislikes the shifting so much, it “doesn’t worry [him] at all” that his home country won’t get a…
