42What should Top Gear do to celebrate its next Facebook milestone... blow up a Veyron?

The blokes at "Top Gear" love their Facebook friends so much, that when they got 10 million fans, Jeremy Clarkson recorded a short personal thank you. Well, as personal as Clarkson can get anyway. And the Stig showed his appreciation by exploding a caravan (video after the jump).

87Report: Top Gear USA premiers to middling viewership

At long last, American car nuts have a version of Top Gear to call our own. The project has been in the works for a long time now, and finally debuted on the History Channel this past Sunday. As we go to press server, some 17,500 readers responded to our poll: over 42 percent had already watched it, a few more said they intended to, and less than 14 percent of respondents said they weren't even interested. That's all well and good, but how did the show itself actually fair on the all-important r

37Ben "The Stig" Collins planning Top Gear rival?

Remember when any hint of the identity of the vaunted Stig was news? Even after Ben Collins outed himself as the mysterious super driver it took a few days before we truly believed that the biggest secret in British television had been spoiled. Judging by recent comments made by Jeremy Clarkson, we're starting to think there's little chance we'll ever see the Stig again on Top Gear, but that doesn't mean Collins is out of television for good.

32Ben "The Stig" Collins accuses BBC of bullying

Ben Collins, the artist driver formerly known as The Stig, is making sure he keeps everyone tabbed on his side of the story. Most recently, he has accused the BBC of bullying him when he informed them that he was writing a book about his years of anonymous lap times. Furthermore, he alleges that it was the BBC that actually gave away his identity in a piece for one of its own magazines, the Radio Times. After that, Collins says, he felt that his time in the white suit was tenuous and that he sho

62Some say that Top Gear will viciously kill off The Stig

When murmurings began hitting the web that the man who plays The Stig was itching to publish his memoirs, we knew it was only a matter of time before the character met his end on the BBC's Top Gear. According to The Sun, James May has hinted that White Stig will be dealt with in the same manner as his predecessor, Black Stig. As you may recall, Black Stig infamously tried to outperform a Harrier jet from behind the wheel of the Top Gear Jaguar, only to overshoot his mark and wind up at the botto

19Report: Top Gear game headed to iPad, mobile phones

For a show from another country that only produces 14 episodes a year, Top Gear is everywhere. And it's going to be even more everywhere soon, thanks to a licensed video game reportedly being developed for PC, console, mobile and tablet platforms. There's no word on exactly how the developers plan to game-ify the Top Gear television experience, but we guess we'll find out soon enough – it's due by the end of the year.

15Top Gear producer on Stig book: "He's ours"

Who is the Stig? That question is consistently one of Google's top queries, proving the world wants to know the identity of Top Gear's masked racing driver. But... ask yourself again, Do you really want to know who the Stig is?

43Report: BBC blocking The Stig's memoirs

Some say he's a literary giant, and that a portion of his autobiography is featured on the Rosetta Stone. All we know is, he's ticked off the BBC bosses by seeking to publish his memoirs. According to UKPA and ESPN, the tame racing driver has written the tale of his life and wants to share it with the world. The only problem is doing so would violate the confidentiality agreement in the Stig's contract. The Beeb is also arguing that revealing his identity would ruin Top Gear for the millions of

8James May earns honorary doctorate from his alma mater

That's Doctor Captain Slow, to you. James May, one of the three amigos of Top Gear fame, has been awarded an honorary doctorate from Lancaster University. May graduated from the institution in 1985 with a degree in music, though according to the BBC, he hasn't been back to the school in nearly 10 years. May now carries an honorary Doctor of Letters diploma from his alma mater and says that he was flattered to receive the accolade.

32Report: Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz to be the stars in Top Gear's Reasonably Price Car

According to The Sun, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz will take to the infamous Top Gear track in an attempt to topple the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car leader board. Evidently, Cruise contacted the show about a stint behind the wheel of the infamous Kia c'eed while in the UK. Both he and Diaz were in country for the debut of their new film "Knight and Day."

19Some say the BBC is launching an investigation... all we know is, he's not The Stig

It would seem that someone is going through the trouble of staging an elaborate ruse by pretending to be none other than The Stig – at least, according to the BBC. An article in the North-West Evening Mail says that one Martin Perzylo recently spotted a suspiciously mute, white-suited individual blasting down the M55 in a Porsche. Perzylo followed the figure for about 30 minutes until the pretender to the test-driving throne pulled off and into a service station, followed by a convoy of La

28Captain Slow No More: Top Gear's James May hits 259.11 mph in Bugatti Veyron SS

Last week, we told you that the Top Gear crew was smirking about having some sort of involvement in the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport's land speed record. And while it was easy for us to chalk it up as simple Top Gear embellishment (they did take credit for the erupting Icelandic volcano, remember), it appears that the TG team – James May, specifically – had a pretty big part in all of this record-setting madness. Apparently he wasn't the 267.81-mph record-setting driver, but Captain Sl
