Tesla Roadster One-Make Race In The Works

Looks like even Jezza’s nay-saying about the Tesla Roadster’s on-track performance can’t keep the car’s buzz from growing. Our good oil barons friends over in the Middle East can’t get enough of the battery-powered ride – so much so that many have gone so far as to import their own since the car isn’t legally [...]

Clarkson Crowns The ZR1 His Personal Best

Not so long ago, our favorite cranky auto journo Jeremy Clarkson laid the weighty crown of Top Gear’s best car of the year on the Caterham 500. And we were happy. If you’ve spent any time around Autofiends at all, you know we’re suckers for open-wheel hoonage, of which the Caterham reigns supreme. Once the [...]

Top Gear Shoots Back At Tesla

Ah yes. A little while back, our favorite hoons across the pond had their way with Tesla’s wonder child, the Roadster. It’s no secret that Jeremy Clarkson has his reservations where EV’s are concerned, and during his review the Tesla received a less-than-favorable evaluation. Tesla responded by saying some of the events portrayed in the [...]

Groin Pain: Tesla Defends Top Gear Performance

By now, you’ve probably seen the proper thrashing Clarkson gave the Tesla Roadster in the latest episode of Top Gear. Seems the boys and girls at the little ‘lectric company that could have taken offense to some of the statements broadcast across jolly ole (and the interweb) and have responded via a tasteful letter to [...]

Top Gear: Jeremy Clarkson vs. Telsa Roadster

  Man, shoulda called it “Jezza vs. Tesla.” Anyhow — Jezza — the man that says things like, “[T]he whole global warming theory is bonkers. A complete fairy story” goes one on one with the (current) poster child for sustainable driving, the all-electric Tesla Roadster. Er, more like goes one on two, as the first [...]

Bold, Exciting New-Generation Ford Fiesta Revealed at Auto China

Video: Ford Fiesta: Fair And Balanced

It can be said that the Top Gear crew tends to spend more time giving high-performance cars a thorough shake down than the econo-boxes that make their way into the studio. Never one to let complaints fall on deaf ears, er, one to let a chance to ridicule his audience slip by, Jeremy Clarkson has [...]

Video: Vintage Top Gear: Clarkson And His 355

Remember Jeremy Clarkson before he was so jaded? So callous? Remember when Top Gear didn’t have a production value to rival Rhode Island’s state budget? Yeah, we don’t either. But videos like this exist to prove that time existed once. Perhaps in a galaxy far, far away. The video after the jump details Clarkson’s purchase [...]

Video: Clarkson Island

Imagine a world where an entire island is dedicated to the breeding of more Jeremy Clarksons. No, we’re not talking about England. Jokesters Harry and Paul have done up a sketch ripping on our favorite Top Gear UK host, complete with a sheep Clarkson herding Stig. Our favorite line? “You have to clip them twice [...]

Top Gear Runs Three Bugatti Veyrons

And where else could Jezza, the Hamster and Captain Slow have possibly done this? Nowhere other than Abu Dhabi. The crew from the most beloved car geek show on YouTube the tube managed to run three of the super rare, super fast Bugatti Veyrons – including the even more rare Pur Sang edition — at speed. [...]

Jeremy Clarkson Injured in Head-On Crash: He’s Fine

Yeah, he crashed. While filming an episode of the new 12th series of Top Gear it turns out. No one knows (or they ain’t saying) what Jezza was driving or what he hit (or where) but the important news is that he’s fine. And, knowing Top Gear we’ll see the crash soon enough. And they’ll make [...]

Richard Hammond Bugatti Veyron

Jeremy Clarkson Ties Chrysler Sebring to the Iraq War

As much as I dislike (most) hardtop convertibles, I like the Chysler Sebring even less. It’s simply not a good car and one of the many reasons why Chrysler’s in so much trouble, and I imagine a folding hardtop version is about as bad as cars get. And — according to Top Gear’s top man Jeremy Clarkson [...]

Picture of the Day: Dirt Track Starion

Lazy Saturday morning here at the Autfiends Corporate HQ East (aka my couch). Just eating day old falafel and watching even older Top Gears. Remember the one where the boys buy three coupes that are not Porsches for 1,500 quid? Sure you do. Richard bought a BMW 635 CSI, Captain Slow bought a V12 XJS [...]

Top Gear and YouTube Together At Last

Bad news for productivity everywhere: Top Gear just launched its own YouTube channel, complete with 30 brand new clips. The crazy Brits who have done everything from race aquatic cars to fighter jets are now available, even if you’re a dirty Yank like us. We just blew eight minutes watching the boys race a diesel [...]

Top Gear USA Filming In Studio Portion This Weekend. Casting Audience

Since like everyone else in Hollywood, I’m actually an actor and this auto blogging thing is just something to tide me over until my next big movie, I was checking upcoming casting calls between my food service pro work and came across this and thought it would be of interest. It appears that Top Gear [...]

Top Gear: Nissan GT-R Takes Off The Gloves

We brought you Top Gear’s epic race between Japan’s flawless mass transit system and Nissan’s newest incarnation of Godzilla. If you’re anything like us, you were probably somewhat stunned to hear Clarkson bemoan the car’s performance, but that was jaunting through the island country side, suffering Nissan factory speed restriction (110 mph) the entire way.
