Last April the UK press reported that the Top Gear hosts were in line for a new three-year deal through 2018 - one that would pay Clarkson four million pounds per year - but the negotiations were put off during a media watchdog investigation.

Neil Young may be better known as a singer-songwriter and rock n' roll icon than he is for his involvement with cars, but the Canadian-born musician is not without his automotive credentials. His latest book, after all, is titled "Special Deluxe: A Memoir of Life & Cars," and one of his most famous songs, "Long May You Run," was written about his old station wagon. But does that mean he's got an inside line on new cars coming out?

James Bond is used to being outgunned. Often working alone, 007 has developed a knack for taking out major criminal syndicates and terrorists despite this routine disadvantage. But in his latest film, Spectre, we suspect Mr. Bond will have met his match in at least one regard – the car being driven by his nemesis, Franz Oberhauser, played by Christoph Waltz.

It's been nine months since we've seen a new episode of Top Gear. That's enough time to bring a human being into the world, but with due respect to all the mothers out there (including our own), it seems like the birthing this latest special from everyone's favorite British car show has been more tumultuous. Now, after its share of thrills, spills and chills, the BBC's new baby is about ready to enter the world.

Apparently, there's still a lot of love out there for by Burt Reynolds and his famous role in Smokey and the Bandit – or at least for his car. As you might remember, Autoblog reported on the auction of the 1977 Pontiac Trans Am a few week ago. At the time, the movie star's car was already well past its $80,000 top estimate, and bidding only shot up from there for a final price of $450,000.

That means parkgoers might be able to enjoy a Star Trek adventure alongside one from Sherlock and Dr. Who with their Jurassic World dinosaurs.

Been hankering for some big-screen dystopian action? It's been a long time since the original Mad Max films debuted in the 1980s, but three decades since the arrival of the last installment, a new one is coming to the silver screen.

Well before Cars ever hit the screens, The Love Bug series of Disney films – starring Herbie the VW Beetle with a mind of its own – was an early introduction to cars and racing for many budding auto fans. Not the modern remake starring Lindsay Lohan mind you, but the originals from the '60s and '70s. Now, a seller in Texas claims to be offering a chance to own one of the Bugs from the films on eBay Motors.

The Top Gear crew may have encountered more of an "episode" than they bargained for on their recent trip to Argentina. But before the team had to flee the country under the imminent threat of violence, they apparently got enough footage to put together a TV special, and that special will air in two parts after Christmas.

Smokey and the Bandit is one of those quintessential 1970s car movies with insane premises but tons of fun. After all, the basic plot of the film is about distracting the police to transport cases of Coors beer cross country. While Burt Reynolds receives top billing, the real star is definitely his black Pontiac Trans-Am. Now, there's a chance to posses one of these muscle machines actually owned by Reynolds, and it's already proving quite popular.

James Bond has driven a variety of vehicles over the course of his long and fictitious career in espionage, but few marques have been as intrinsically tied to the famous spy as Aston Martin.
