Chris Evans, everyone’s favorite one-season Top Gear shouty man, is getting paid £2.25 million (or $2,932,447.50) by the BBC, according to a report from the British government broadcaster. But the weird thing is, even though it’s not for Top Gear, it’s at least in part because of Jeremy Clarkson.
Amazon’s inaugural outing with The Grand Tour wasn’t perfect, but I think there was one thing most gearheads could agree on: we wanted more. Thankfully the streaming TV network/drone delivery service agreed, and the show will be back in October. Here’s our first look.
Top Gear America, the franchise’s second swing directly at the U.S. market, officially airs next month and the first trailer is finally here. The good news is that it looks like Top Gear. The bad news might be that it looks like Top Gear.
Top Gear has a long and storied history of pissing off other countries, and the new hosts seem to be continuing this proud tradition. Evidence isn’t on the show’s side this time as speeds well over the limit—more than 150 mph in one case—were captured in Norway’s Atlantic Ocean Tunnel on Wednesday during the filming…
I always liked the Ferrari FF for being about the weirdest car on sale. I don’t mean the weirdest Ferrari on sale; I mean that the two-transmission’d FF was one of the odder cars a person could buy, cost no object. This year it got what I thought was a pointless facelift. As Chris Harris explains, it’s more than that.
If the re-rebooted Top Gear still wasn’t your thing and you’re still hungry for more of Clarkson, Hammond and May, the second season of The Grand Tour will hit Amazon Prime this October.
Chris Harris revisited the Nissan GT-R nine years after he first drove one, and despite its timeless sensation, its over-engineered driving mechanics have always been a trick to master when pushing it.
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.
Another season of Top Gear without its old trio has come and gone, and holy cow, I felt no nostalgia at all this time around. It was just that good.
The King Of The Hammers is usually described as “Burning Man meets Mad Max” because everyone’s filthy and the cars look like metal monsters heading to war. Now that you’ve seen Top Gear’s Chris Harris and Sabine Schmitz take it on, you need to know more, right?
This season of Top Gear is kind of like new, new Top Gear, since we’ve still got the newer panel of hosts but we don’t have to deal with Chris Evans anymore. And so far, I am absolutely loving it. Like, cannot-take-my-eyes-off-of-the-television loving it. How do you all feel about it?
Following a wreck that killed two people, an instructor at Las Vegas driving facility SpeedVegas filed a lawsuit against the track for being “unnecessarily dangerous.” The new Top Gear America, which will air later this year, named SpeedVegas as its official film studio and test track just five days ago. Update: The…
There seems to be pretty strong evidence that TV personality drivers Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood and Adam Ferrara, who hosted the last American iteration of Top Gear, are be coming back to make another show. Presumably about cars, because what else would they do?
Today we learned who the hosts of the new Top Gear America are, and while the trio may not be what many expected, we certainly wish them well. I’m personally a fan of Wookie, and who doesn’t want more of the blind guy from Contact in their car-shows? Still, we couldn’t help brainstorming some other Top Gear America …
With the demise of Top Gear USA, there’s a new American Top Gear coming later this year! This time, though, it’ll be called—wait for it, wait for it—Top Gear America, and will be hosted by actor William Fichtner, drag racer Antron Brown and auto journalist Tom “Wookie” Ford. Can this succeed where Top Gear USA didn’t?
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…
