It's been nine months since we've seen a new episode of Top Gear.

Paramount Pictures has been working for two years on plans to open a theme park about 45 minutes outside of London, called, would you believe, Paramount London. The corporate entity behind the project, London Resort Company Holdings, has signed a deal with BBC Worldwide that will allow the park to incorporate "famous BBC programs and characters." That means parkgoers might be able to enjoy a Star Trek adventure alongside one from Sherlock and Dr. Who with their Jurassic World dinosaurs.

The Top Gear crew may have encountered more of an "episode" than they bargained for on their recent trip to Argentina.

21Jeremy Clarkson in trouble again over tweet, says it wasn't him

There's a trend developing when it comes to the controversial host of the BBC's Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson. On the one hand, there have been more than a few times where the presenter inserted his foot very deep into his mouth with some racist or culturally insensitive joke.

6Nissan ZEOD RC on track and from behind the wheel

The Nissan ZEOD RC hybrid racecar has had mixed success in its competition life. It was invented to do a completely electric, high-speed lap at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which it was able to do in practice. However, when the big event actually came, the car lasted less than an hour before it had to bow out with transmission issues. Nissan hasn't completely given up on its experiment, though. The experience (and possibly some of the tech) is going to help with the GT-R LM racer next year, and now

2Top Gear pits V8 supercar against stunt plane, Komatsu tractor

Traditional motorsports pit a bunch of roughly equivalent vehicles over a course to find out which driver has the most skill and which car has the right tweaks to score a victory against the competitors.

But what happens in the far-flung future when the automobile is long dead, assuming we could keep his brain alive, could Clarkson keep up his act? Upcoming PC space flight sim Star Citizen shows in a promo video that the Top Gear method would still work in the centuri
