Let The Stig Take You On A 360 Degree Tour Of The Top Gear Track

Don't Believe Anyone Who Tells You They Know The Stig's Identity

Is Gordon ‘Flash’ Shedden The Stig?

Well, we won't know for sure until the next one arrives and, you could argue, it doesn't really matter. Still, I think I have a theory for who is the current Stig that makes total sense. Hear me out. » 7/18/13 10:00am 7/18/13 10:00am

Watch The Stig Refuse To Engage Honda's Asimo Robot In A Dance-Off

Unless you're some kind of combination astronaut/coke dealer/CIA agent, your job is nowhere near as cool as the Stig's. Top Gear's tame racing driver gets to test all sorts of cars and never has to talk to his co-workers. What gig could be better than that? » 5/28/13 12:45pm 5/28/13 12:45pm

Ryan Reynolds Is Officially Better Than Tom Cruise

British motoring show Top Gear is a popular stop on the U.K. interview circuit for two reasons: 1.) It's the most watched show... in the world; 2.)
