By a show of virtual hands, how many of you saw the newest Top Gear episode that aired over the weekend? The Japan episode? Was your mind blown? Because mine sure was.
For many of us, myself included, Top Gear was the mecca of car shows. Not only was it funny and entertaining, but it also widened the appeal of cars to our friends and family who wouldn’t have otherwise cared in the slightest. By 2015, the show claimed more than 350 million viewers worldwide. That’s a lot of weight on…
Mark your calendars, friends. A brand new Top Gear season 25 trailer dropped today, and not only do we now know when it’ll air, we also now know that they somehow managed to get some space between the wheels and the road in an Aston Martin.
Top Gear’s Chris Harris isn’t sure how to feel about Honda. It had its good days, back in the second generation of its front-wheel-drive Civic Type R, but lost its charm for years afterward. But the new car is so good that Harris wonders if one of its biggest competitors, the Ford Focus RS, needs to power all four…
I’d wager that these two men, by the names of Chris Harris and Mike Spinelli, are among the only people ever to get a Ford Raptor stuck on a teeny little glacier such as this one in Iceland.
“Great car TV?!” you might be (rudely) exclaiming. “With no Top Gear or The Grand Tour?” you may ask, still being kind of hurtful. But yes, following our own Jalopnik show, Car vs. America, premiering on Fusion last night (which you can watch online here), our /DRIVE friends also return to TV tonight!
There are two things the internet likes a lot (actually, there are far more than two things, but let’s stick to the program here): Chris Harris driving cars and a car called the 2017 Ford GT. So, here is a video Chris Harris driving the Ford GT.
Seriously, it’s Friday afternoon. You’ve got nothing better to do than watch Top Gear’s short, but epic video of friend-of-the-site Chris Harris hooning a custom-built Alfa Romeo made by well-known British Alfa parts supplier/tuner Alfaholics. It’s six minutes of bliss.
I have a new life goal and that is to race a couple of laps around the Goodwood Circuit in something old and fast. After, of course, I get better at driving. And racing. And gain more courage. Like, a ton more courage.
Top Gear’s Chris Harris stepped out of a loaner Porsche 911 R to kindly review the new 911 GT3 for us, so when he claims that the GT3 is one of the best cars on sale today, we’re just going to have to believe him.
Top Gear’s Chris Harris got to spend a lot of time on open roads with the new Bugatti Chiron hypercar, and yet all of that new complicated fussy stuff was no match for an experience that dates back almost 100 years.
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.
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.
