In fact, the winner of Top Gear's most ...

    1387231080

    We post a lot of videos on Autoblog, but we aren't sure we've ever posted one quite like this. This is a video of Top Gear's Stig lapping the Dunsfold test track in a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series. But even for the talented video crews at TG, this isn't everyday fare. A 360-degree, ...

    1386010560

    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.

    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 ...

    1381071480

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Report: AU Gold Coast turns away Top Gear taping, fears noisy cars
    1380319260

    For all of its negatives and controversy, let's get one thing clear - the BBC's Top Gear has quite possibly the largest viewing audience of any TV show on the planet, an estimated 350 million people in 170 of the 190-odd countries on the map. Which makes it rather odd that Australia's capital of ...

    Video: Watch and hear Renault's awesome Twin'Run driven in anger
    1377637080

    We're a little tardy in getting to this, but the engine notes will make up for the delay. When Renault revealed the Twin'Run concept at the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix earlier this Summer, it didn't reveal much of the engine note. This was an appalling shame, since the not-road-legal Renault 5 ...

    Report: Top Gear in dustup over alleged staged hovercraft scene [w/video]
    1375118940

    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.
