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.
Welcome to Jalopnik’s The Grand Tour Season 2 live blog, which no longer has a touring tent, leaving us only to judge whether or not it’s any grander than last season.
A BMW E36 M3 Evolution, with four doors and a manual, in a lovely shade of 1990s green is a wonderful car to buy. This BMW E36 M3 Evo, however, might not be the smartest purchase. You’d know it if you’d seen it on Top Gear.
Top Gear in its prime was fantastic, but it was often full of jabs that went over the heads of non-British audiences. Jokes about cricket and someone named Wayne Rooney and 1980s Vauxhalls, for example. Evidently the producers of The Grand Tour decided (warm) beer guts, bad hair and bad teeth aren’t working for…
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.
