The lads at Top Gear have released their listing of the finest cars of the past year, handing the ultimate honor to BMW's revolutionary i8 plug-in-hybrid supercar.

"Our local fixers advised that we stop filming immediately, leave the cars on the gradients and go to a nearby hotel." – Jeremy Clarkson

117Top Gear hosts pelted with stones, flee Argentina [w/video]

Top Gear has a reputation for many things. Chief among those is its use of staged situations and its uncanny ability to insult cultures and ethnic groups across the world. Occasionally, though, we have to give the team of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May the benefit of the doubt.

81The 10 most offensive mistakes that got Top Gear in trouble [w/videos]

Clarkson is so recognizable a figure, anything and everything he says or does reflects on Top Gear, whether good or bad.

61Top Gear in hot water after staging crash at scene of fatal accident

The guys from UK's Top Gear just can't seem to stay out of trouble, especially main host Jeremy Clarkson. Usually, it's the things that come out of their mouths that cause controversy, like the two recent accusations of using racial slurs. However, the show's latest problem came not from what was said but from where they were shooting and how.

10Top Gear up for possible airing in North Korea?

Top Gear has a habit of poking fun at, um, everyone. Considering that, we find the idea that "Dear Leader" Kim Jong-un is thinking about allowing the world's greatest motoring show onto the ultra-censored screens of North Korea to be kind of surprising. After all, what will happen when Clarkson and Co. crack wise about anything related to the Hermit Kingdom? It won't be good.

16BBC poised to open Top Gear contract extension talks

We want more Top Gear. You want more Top Gear. It's safe to say the BBC wants more Top Gear, considering the massive worldwide audience the show delivers. But do its three hosts? We're hoping the answer is "yes," as talks kick off between the network and the show's hosts, Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond.

2Top Gear hosts to get animated on Phineas and Ferb

Cartoonish as they may seem at times, the hosts of Top Gear typically appear as their own, live-action selves. But that's all about to change when Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May cameo on the popular Disney cartoon Phineas and Ferb.

57Top Gear is written for 9-year-olds

Shocking as it may seem, a television show that makes a habit of doing silly things like incinerating caravans, dropping pianos on Morris Marinas, converting a Ford Transit into a hovercraft and recruiting British Touring Car Championship drivers to race airport support vehicles isn't targeted at a high-brow audience. Yes, we're talking about Top Gear.

12Top Gear to spearhead new BBC male-oriented global channels

Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond could be getting a lot more time on your TV screen, as the BBC has announced that Top Gear will lead the launch of a new, global, male-oriented channel called BBC Brit, later this year. Think of it as Spike TV with a side of bangers and mash.

10James May to circle Isle of Man on life-size Meccano motorbike

Did you know that the gents from Top Gear do a lot more than just make us all laugh on the telly for a few Sundays each year? It's true, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May all have other projects, newspaper columns or TV shows to keep them busy, but predictably, these aren't your average day jobs.

24Top Gear hosts made slightly creepy in 1:18 scale

If having the trio of Top Gear presenters on your TV isn't enough for you, you can always buy these new action figures. While the detail of the 1:18-scale models of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May is high, something may have been lost in the translation; for one, their heads arguably look a bit too large for their bodies. On second thought, maybe that's a result of artistic license...

76Top Gear in dustup over alleged staged hovercraft scene [w/video]

Top Gear walks a very narrow line between documentary, sitcom and reality television. And while some aspects of it are true, it shouldn't be a huge shock that there are plenty of staged elements. Still, there seem to be elements of the British public that think everything shown on the telly is true, which makes the latest controversy over Top Gear's fakery seem rather silly to us.

61Jeremy Clarkson banked $21M from BBC last year

Jeremy Clarkson, host of Top Gear, is known for many things. He's arguably the most polite, unoffensive person... in the world. His consideration for people, countries, and causes is renowned. No, wait – that's wrong.

44Top Gear caught filming Best of British near Buckingham Palace

YouTuber and car-fan extraordinaire Shmee probably had very little trouble tracking down the Top Gear film crew recently, as the group was putting together an episode that could accurately be described as "excessive." With its flag-waving (literally) Best of British theme, the TG guys gathered a jaw-dropping array of British cars, and parked them all right in front of Buckingham Palace to make extra sure that the point was driven home.

36Top Gear returns for Series 20 on June 30

Good news, petrolheads: Top Gear is coming back for its 20th season, starting on June 30. Yes, we mean the original UK version of the hit motoring show. Time to get those DVRs fired up... hopefully that means it will air on BBC America in the States around the same time.

30'Top Gear'... beloved in Iran?

It's true. Top Gear has been hitting airwaves in Iran since 2009, and since then, the program has garnered an impressive following. Mozaffar Shafeie, an actor who translates Jeremy Clarkson's musings into Farsi for the show, routinely finds himself signing autographs for fans. While the BBC can't operate freely in the country, BBC Persian TV hosts Top Gear. When the station dropped the show to air an interview with then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, BBC reports viewers accustomed to the

38Top Gear season premier will air on BBC America days after UK debut

If you're hungry for the new season of Top Gear and happen to find yourself living in the US, we have good news for you. The BBC has announced season 19 will debut on BBC America one week after it airs in the UK. That's a welcome change from the lengthy wait we're accustomed to on this side of the Atlantic, and will likely be enough to keep most fans from turning to their favorite torrents for their dose of Jeremy Clarkson, James May, Richard Hammond and The Stig. The first episode is set to air

35Top Gear releases first teaser for new season

The new season of Top Gear is set to launch at the end of this month, and the BBC has dropped a quick teaser to get everyone excited. The spot takes a look at the show from the wardrobe department's point of view, and gives us a few glimpses of what Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond have been up to since we last saw them. From squaring off in a Lexus LFA against a fighter plane and playing rugby with cheap cars to bashing through the jungle in the bug-eyed Subaru WRX shown above, th

36Top Gear back on air January 27

While reporting about Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May hasn't seemed to quit over the last 12 months, the fact that the Top Gear trio were not together and filming episodes of the world's most popular automotive television show made 2012 a dull year for fans. The good news now is that, as promised, the gang is back together for 2013 and box-fresh episodes of the BBC series are coming soon. Very soon.

56Top Gear previews Worst Car In The World special

If you've grown a reputation as a "car person," odds are you've been assailed with single most infuriating query that can be leveled at an individual of our ilk. In some weak attempt to strike up a conversation, someone has dribbled the words "What's the best car?" from between their lips and slung the syllables all over your shirt front. As you and I know, that's an unanswerable question. You might as well attempt to levy a verdict on the best music, art, sex, or tool. They all have their own t
