This past September we reported on Top Gear's destruction of the Mazda Furai, one of the finest concept cars to ever grace an auto show stage. It turns out that the Furai, which was burned nearly beyond recognition at the hands of the British magazine, was actually destroyed back in 2008, and that the entire thing had been covered up for five long years.
Leave it up to the Top Gear crew to put this one together. No, not the famous British crew of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May; the staff behind this video of a Peugeot 207 rally car going up against a downhill skier hails from Italy and represents Top Gear Magazine.
Top Gear magazine has officially named the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque its Car Of The Year for 2011 after snagging top honors in the SUV category. Perhaps even more impressively, Jeremy Clarkson also named the Evoque his favorite vehicle of 2011. The compact luxury SUV faced off against the likes of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe, McLaren MP4-12C and Ferrari FF among more common offerings.

Top Gear Magazine may find itself under new rulers soon. The BBC has put the magazine up for sale alongside titles like Radio Times and Gardeners' World, and so far four publishing houses have expressed interest in nabbing the lot.

It's been reported before that the crew over at TopGear is not exactly environmentally friendly, but we'll give them the benefit of the doubt. C'mon, there's at least a bit of love for saving the Earth over at TopGear, right? After all, they are suspected of triggering the volcano in Iceland that grounded planes for several days thus reducing emissions in the area by who knows how many tons. Now, they are showing off their green side a little more by debating the importance of the hybrid vehicle
Reports that the editor-in-chief of Top Gear, Michael Harvey, is stepping down from his post have now been confirmed. Sort of. According to correspondence received from Harvey and the BBC by our El Camino-lovin' compatriots over at Jalopnik, Harvey will be resigning as editor-in-chief in favor of a more flexible position as Editorial Consultant and an as-yet undisclosed new part-time position on this side of the Atlantic.
The Paris Motor Show has given up its secrets, but that doesn't mean the teasing is over. Top Gear magazine has the story on the Aston Martin One-77, joined by what will probably be more tease-tastic renders. One thing that can be gleaned from the rendering on the TG microsite is the headlight layout, with an inner row of LEDs leading back to an array that includes at least one additional cluster of LEDs. The front end still looks a tad overwrought to us – and a little reminiscent of the G
