You know all these people who say, “Give new Top Gear a chance!”? Well, I am glad to say that I won’t be giving new Top Gear a chance. For me, watching Top Gear was never about watching the show; it was the personalities of Clarkson, May, and Hammond which were what drew me in and kept me watching reruns for years. I…
Giddier than anyone will give me a right to. So giddy, some deranged burner would thing I’m a BBC employee.
I made it onto the episode of Top Gear US where they ran the 24hrs of LeMons. For about 1/2 a second I’m seen driving the orange E30 (I know it’s me driving since I’m the only one on the team with a white helmet).
This table is unreasonably large
...but will it be rubbish? We’ll find out soon enough, it seems. Top Gear just dropped their first teaser trailer.
This unused aerial footage of the Top Gear Burma special almost makes those guys look like heros. In any event its beautiful to watch
Ok, I love Top Gear. I still love Top gear, I miss it sorely. This is not a hate filled rant against the a former tall outspoken host of the show. Far from it, this is a love letter of sorts. Top Gear, in the guise that took over the world, has been around since 2002. It exposed a great deal of the world both inside…
Not a day goes by, it seems, that autonomous vehicles aren’t in the news. Google’s rigorously testing them, and Motor Trend’s Editor-in-Chief did a road test of their progress so far a little while back, as is Tesla—enough that several Jalopnik writers could be driven to Detroit from New York quite safely—and every…
Everyone has great quotes, what are your favorite from the most polarizing man in automotive entertainment? Mine has to be “Speed has never killed anyone. Suddenly becoming stationary, that’s what gets you”. Fire away.
For movie night, my roommate just happened to pick a film mentioned by Jeremy Clarkson as one of his favorites in the Argentina Special: Local Hero. I was finally able to see it, and found it a gloriously immersive 80s Scottish village slice-of-life.
This is from the first episode of Top Gear I ever watched. Always a favorite to go back and watch. Even though I hate convertibles, I’d take the McLaren.
Joe Accountant and his wife were out for a country drive in the Scottish highland when he spotted a flahsy yellow Mustang zip along the curvy roads. Being a prudent drone pilot he decided to invade everyone’s privacy and spy on the unusual automotive activity.
Casually watching this video I said to myself “damn this guy is a beast” then I scrolled over the title to see that this “beast” as in fact, Top Gear presenter Sabine Schmitz. It’s almost as if she is subconsciously navigating the track IN THE RAIN while applying most of her focus on blasting by other cars.I hope the…
We opted for the H&R Cup Kit, with some Team Dynamics wrapped in Dunlop Direzzas. You can check out our progress in the latest episode:
With all this talk about the next Top Gear hosts I Went On The Internet and I found this... I wonder how long it’ll take this reboot to get this kind of chemistry.
Pretty straightforward: Say Top Gear or the Jeremy-Richard-James car show decides to use music from the Star Wars movies. What do you think will the car or cars be, and where would they review it?
