The British Government has just committed almost $30 million to develop various facets of autonomous car tech, a chunk of which Bosch and Jaguar Land Rover are getting to develop self-driving cars that actually “drive like humans, not robots.”
When you finally become a licensed driver and have a few years under your belt, the driving experience becomes automated. But what happens when you go to a foreign country where they drive on the wrong side of the road? That’s this week, on Worst Car Stories.
Land Rover Defenders don’t usually go fast. But when they do, they look hilarious, unstoppable, and way too much fun.
Don the tweed and pomade. The Goodwood Revival is a living exhibit of Britain’s motoring past, but is this a positive for mechanical culture going forward, or an anchor keeping us navel gazing into the past?
This 1944 Willys Jeep in classic US military livery was stolen from the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, England where it was parked out front for a show. It belonged to a 73-year-old man who got his hands on it and restored after his father had actually driven it in World War II.
Security camera footage from the Trackspeed Racing classic car shop shows a pair of thieves using a Land Rover as a battering ram, then hooking it up to a beautiful 1972 Ford Escort MK1, and yanking it right off the showroom floor. This is some straight-up Hollywood style insanity.
England's Bath Bus Company began shuttling customers from the city of Bath to Bristol Airport 19 miles away on Thursday, using a 40-seat bus that is powered by human waste and food scraps. The bus is the first of its kind in the U.K. and can run up to 300 kilometers (186 miles) on a tank.
Somebody in a British-spec Honda Civic made the mistake of merging without getting a good look in their mirror, because they managed to not see the semi-truck before ending up pinned like a bug on its radiator.
When life hands you landslides, make your own private toll road detour. (Haven't you heard the saying?) Since February, a landslide has closed the A431 highway between Bristol and Bath in England, adding an extra hour to the commute. So one enterprising local guy built a road through a private field—the UK's private…
I'm shocked, I say shocked that spy photos of the new Land Rover Discovery Sport's interior reveal nothing like the Star Trek-style touchscreen we were dazzled with at the concept's New York debut. But hey, it's got a stick shift!
On April 30th, 1948 the very first Land Rover made its public debut at an auto show in Amsterdam. Maurice Wilks, then-chief engineer at Rover Cars, had drawn it up with inspiration from the Willys Jeep he used on his farm in England.
Oh, what's this, in my special inbox tag for "silly dog things that also involve cars just to brighten up my day just as soon as Travis starts saying he hates my face?" A story, from the Beeb, of indeed a silly dog thing? How lovely. This starts out so nice.
As storms over the past few weeks battered already-soggy southern England, rivers burst their banks and floodwaters began to rise. At least two people have been killed by the wind, water, and waves, so the British military decided it needed to do something. Specifically, it needed to bring in the Royal Air Force.
A man attacked a used car dealership in England with an axe and a knife this week, after it sold him a car that he no longer found satisfactory, ten years ago. Because that makes a lot of sense.
This might look like a Range Rover publicity shot, but it's just a shot of an ordinary driver beating the heavy floods that hit England last week.
A police safety camera van recorded a British driver for thirty seconds driving on the highway with his hands behind his head. For that, he has been arrested.
Gizmodo EIC Geoff Manaugh and U.K. architects Smout Allen tapped an unlikely source to help create their new exhibition in London: Williams F1. But, in this case, the engineers at Williams weren't building the advanced race cars they're well-known for—they were 3D-printing the parts for an intricate model of an…
A man was pulled over in Birmingham, England at 9:45 this morning. Ok, no big deal. That's when police found out he's been driving without a license for the last 40 years. That's an issue.
Behold, every commuter's worst nightmare. Authorities in the English county of Kent this morning were working to untangle a 100-car pile-up that left some 60 people injured.
