It is widely accepted that Twitter is a horrible place, full of Nazis, misogynists, near-provocations of nuclear war with North Korea and people who openly call themselves Thought Leaders. But! Every now and then something good happens on Twitter. This is one of those times, and the result is a ton of Top Gear…
Season one of The Grand Tour had its highs and its lows, but in the end it mostly delivered on what we all wanted without taking too many radical risks with the formula: Clarkson, Hammond and May doing stuff in cars for our amusement. It’s coming back in a month and here’s what we can expect.
“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!
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.
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 America came back last night on BBC America with three new hosts. They drove Baja Bugs, the new Acura NSX, and the new Ford Raptor. Most importantly, they seemed to constantly remind everyone that THIS IS AMERICA.
Top Gear America, formerly Top Gear USA, returns with its three new hosts tonight. The new episode airs at 8 p.m. EST on BBC America. I’ve seen it, and all I really came away with is the knowledge that Bill Fichtner has a lovely voice.
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.
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.
