    Video: Chris Harris enjoys a smokey treat with HSV Maloo GTS
    1418950800

    Auto enthusiasts should absolutely adore Australia. This bonkers island, aside from being filled with bugs, spiders, sharks and crocodiles, all of which are hellbent on killing you slowly, is home to two of the auto world's greatest things – the V8 Supercars series, and the ute. While ...

    Video: Chris Harris falls in love with Mercedes-AMG GT at Laguna Seca
    1417715100

    It's not every day that an automaker goes down a market segment and still comes off as even more ambitious, but that's exactly what Mercedes has done with the new AMG GT. While the SLS was bigger and more expensive, with the new GT, Mercedes has set its sights on one of the most iconic sports ...

    Video: Chris Harris checks out Ken Block's Hoonicorn '65 Mustang
    1417654740

    Ken Block's Hoonicorn, which stars in Gymkhana Seven, might still bear a passing resemblance to a vintage 1965 Ford Mustang, but underneath the skin, the car is one of the baddest custom machines to ever do a smoky burnout on the road. The ever enthusiastic British auto journalist Chris Harris is ...

    Yes, we know, we just saw Chris Harris smoking it up around Anglesey Circuit in a Porsche 911 GT3 and a Ferrari 458 Speciale, and here he is again. But this is Harris in one of the (three!) era-defining supercars, and we simply can't miss that. Harris celebrates every aspect of the Ferrari ...

    1413320460

    If you're a fan of online videos about cars – and we suspect that if you're visiting a site like ours, you are – you must have been excited when the Drive channel launched on YouTube now nearly three years ago. Maybe you were even happy for the team behind it when they inked a deal ...

    Video: Chris Harris explains why the world's best car is... the Citroën 2CV?
    1397862900

    Most recently we've seen Chris Harris in the driver's seat of a Jaguar F-Type, a McLaren P1 prototype and a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. And outside the car, there was his indignation over the demonization of the Porsche Carrera GT after Paul Walker's death. So you might not expect him to say of a 1957 ...

    Video: Chris Harris finds the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe rather drifty
    1395878340

    Our own Matt Davis may have called the new Jaguar F-Type R Coupe "one heady rascal," but our review was disappointingly short on drifting, tire smoke and general, English shenanigans. You know, the sort of things that Chris Harris from Drive excels at. Actually, relative to Harris' other ...

    Video: McLaren P1 prototype still sliding hard after 40,000 miles
    1392944400

    Even if you're the manufacturer responsible for producing them, you don't just hand the keys over to a seven-figure supercar to just anyone. You hand-pick just the right man for the job. But even then, you still don't want to give him a brand-new car. Which could be why when McLaren invited Chris ...

    Video: It's so hard to say goodbye to the C63 AMG's 6.2-liter V8
    1391794200

    Contrary to what most marketing tells us, progress is not always forward. Sometimes a product nails the balance of what consumers want so perfectly that it's nearly impossible to improve on it – just compare the original Ford Mustang to the atrocious Mustang 2. Drive's Chris Harris is ...

    Video: Can a Corvette really be compared to a 911 with options costing more than the Chevy?
    1391041860

    In this latest video from Drive, Chris Harris asks straight away, "Can you still compare a base Corvette to a Porsche Carerra?" That's an particularly interesting question in this film, as the 911 in question is a 400-horsepower Carrera S model that's been fitted with $60,000 in options. Base ...

    Read This: Chris Harris condemns demonization of Porsche Carrera GT in wake of Walker death
    1386369900

    When something bad happens, it's easy to resort to scapegoating. At least for some of us, that seems to be exactly what has happened following the tragic death of actor Paul Walker and racer Roger Rodas, who were killed on November 30 in a Porsche Carrera GT. Even though officials have not yet ...

    Video: Drive goes sideways, shreds tires in a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
    1382633160

    Ferrari has built a monster with its F12 Berlinetta, a V12-powered grand tourer that has the looks of a supermodel and the firepower of a small country. And while it's been on the scene for a minute, Drive's Chris Harris wasn't going to turn down the opportunity to hoon a 740-horsepower prancing ...

    1378729980

    Chris Harris is one of the most beloved of British automotive journalists, and yet Ferrari doesn't seem inclined to take him off its black list.

    To promote Grid 2, Codemasters is releasing a set of three videos that feature Chris Harris. The second one has just been thrown all over the Internet, but it won't make much sense unless you watch the first video, which was released in January. In that video, Harris attempts to beat McLaren test ...

    Video: Chris Harris pits Fiesta ST against Mercedes G63 AMG in 0-60 battle... sort of
    1375401540

    Vehicle performance tests are serious business, with reputations made or broken by things like braking distance, top speed, and lateral g-forces. King of the metrics, though, is the 0-60 run, which for unknown reasons has become the benchmark for what truly makes a car a performance ...
