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.
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.
Hard to guess, but I’m betting on the original 1930s Type 35 on the right.
Get ready to have your feed clogged with the sound of the Bugatti Chiron’s sixteen cylinders mushing car journalists into their leather-lined bucket seats.
The LaFerrari FXX K is very fast and very expensive and very red and blah blah who cares just my god listen to the sound it makes when you shift gears.
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…
Being excited for a new season of Top Gear is very much like being excited for the holidays: you know great stuff is coming your way, you just aren’t quite certain of what it might be. This new Top Gear trailer makes me feel exactly that way.
