    1393004640

    Another day, another Top Gear controversy.

    1390523340

    Everyone loves the Stig, and it's hard to blame them.

    1390244520

    Jeremy Clarkson may be many things to many people, but politically correct is not one of them. It is, after all, his opinionated nature that makes him who he is. But every once in a while – okay, more than every once in a while – he falls afoul of offending one group of people or ...

    Video: Watch Top Gear's McLaren P1 segment being made
    1381881720

    Let's get one thing straight - we don't just watch Top Gear for the powerslides or the antics of its three hosts, we watch it for the cars, and the way TG's crack film team makes said cars look. Put in the simplest terms possible, Top Gear has the chops to elevate its reviews a form of art. It's ...

    Video: Top Gear's The Stig is coming to Forza 5
    1381536060

    Some say that the red ring of death is what he calls his belly button, and that in a past life, he was the dog from Duck Hunt. All we know is, he's not The Stig, but he is the Stig's digital cousin, and for the first time ever, you'll be able to race him. That's right, as part of Forza ...

    Video: Grand Theft Auto 5 gets Top Gear intro treatment
    1380558600

    Grand Theft Auto is more than just a video game series – it's a scathing commentary on modern life. The brutal parodies of the game come fast and furious from the start, and continue through most of the story. Just hop into a car, turn on the radio and go for a cruise around Los Santos, and ...
