2015 Mustang EcoBoost VS. Merkur XR4Ti

Being the owner of a Merkur XR4Ti and the son of another XR owner, we were both very excited when we heard Ford was reviving the 2.3 Turbo engine in the Mustang. The Mustang hasn't been powered by a 2.3 Turbo since the SVO which ended production in 1986 and featured the same engine that was slotted into a Sierra… » 10/31/14 8:09pm 10/31/14 8:09pm

Top Gear's Next DVD Is Set For Another Ridiculously 'Perfect' Trip

Last year's Top Gear Christmas DVD, entitled The Perfect Road Trip, was a little less than perfect, to put it lightly. In grand Top Gear tradition, everything went wrong. So this year, Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson are back, with the ingeniously titled The Perfect Road Trip 2. It should be interesting, to say… » 10/27/14 5:09pm 10/27/14 5:09pm

Here's A List Of Everyone That Hates Jeremy Clarkson (Right Now)

Let's get the clear, strong biases out of the way first – I love Jeremy Clarkson. As a journalist, as an entertainer, as a presenter, I think his collective body of work is something to be proud of. (Never met him though, maybe as a person, he's a jerk?) But here are some people that hate him. » 10/15/14 4:07pm 10/15/14 4:07pm

More Proof The Original Offensive Top Gear License Plate Was Real

We had seen some evidence that the original "H982FKL" plate on Jeremy Clarkson's ill-fated Porsche 928, that offended so many in Argentina, had been on the car for a while, but this is as close to evidence as you're going to get. Here's the car, pre-Top Gear, in all its (not really offensive) glory. » 10/10/14 12:36pm 10/10/14 12:36pm

Clarkson: Top Gear Hosts Hid Under Beds, Feared For Safety In Argentina

The hosts of Top Gear and their entire production crew were kicked out of Argentina last week over what was, ostensibly, a license plate. Things got so bad, according to Jeremy Clarkson, that the three hosts of the show were forced to literally hide underneath beds to escape an angry and violent mob. » 10/06/14 12:10pm 10/06/14 12:10pm

The Real Top Gear In Argentina Story Is This Chilean Citröen

Sure, it's a big deal when Jeremy Clarkson pisses off an entire country and gets run out by an angry mob, but lost in all the speculation of license plate-based trolling and smashed car windows was this very important detail: it looks like the Top Gear special will feature a Citröneta, one of the weirdest 2CV variants… » 10/03/14 4:30pm 10/03/14 4:30pm

Top Gear Was Just Forcibly Thrown Out Of Argentina

Top Gear got into hot water with its upcoming Argentina special, after it was noticed that Jeremy Clarkson's number plate looks like a reference to the Falklands War if you try really, really hard. It turns out that water is so hot, in fact, that things have boiled over, and they've been expelled from the country. » 10/03/14 10:06am 10/03/14 10:06am

Jeremy Clarkson, Master-Level Troll, Trolls Entire Nation Of Argentina

Hey there! Remember that time we told you that Top Gear's annual Christmas special would involve a journey finishing in the Argentine city of Ushuaia? Hah, yeah... good times, good times. It turns out that might not be the case, as Ushuaia just banned Jeremy Clarkson from entering the city. » 10/02/14 4:19pm 10/02/14 4:19pm

Get Excited Because This Year's Top Gear Xmas Special Is In [REDACTED]

Yes, it's that time of year again. No, not the time that you get to watch Top Gear, nor that time that you stare at your computer, deep into the camera hole, wondering if it's in fact Top Gear that's watching you, but the time of year when the Top Gear presenters head off to an exotic locale to film their annual… » 9/22/14 3:49pm 9/22/14 3:49pm
