  • Keanu Reeves at Ferrari headquarters in Maranello, Italy - June 2015

    Keanu Reeves has taken some flack—perhaps deserved—for his acting chops over the years, but there's no question that the actor appreciates speed. On a recent trip to Ferrari headquarters in Maranello, the star of the blockbusters like Speed, Point Break and the Matrix trilogy lapped the famed Fiorano circuit in a 488 GTB, though it's unclear whether he placed an order for the twin-turbo 458 replacement.

  • Comedians in Cars Season 6 Premieres
    'Comedians' Season 6: Ready For Jim Carrey In A Countach?

    While Jay Leno's Garage is always informative—how much do you really know about the 1937 Talbot-Lago Type 150 CS?—it's safe to say fellow comedian Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee features more goofy fun along with the high-end hardware. Past episodes have featured...

  • McQueen: The Man & Le Mans
    'McQueen: The Man & Le Mans' Set For November Release

    In his passion project Le Mans, Steve McQueen's character Michael Delaney famously says "Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting." Given McQueen was famously fond of speed—and actually won his class in the 1970 12 Hours of Sebring—it's not hard to also ascribe that...

  • Idris Elba sets new Flying Mile UK land speed record in Bentley Continental GT

    The ‘Flying Mile’ is a historical high-water mark, a thing of legend. In 1927, Sir Malcolm Campbell drove a modified Bentley—the Napier-Campbell Blue Bird—to a U.K. land speed record of 174.8 mph. That’s faster than most of today’s sports cars, just 41 years after the Daimler Patent-Motorwagen first did it’s three-wheeled crawl. ALSO SEE: 2016 Dodge Viper ACR Street-Legal Racer Revealed: Video But now, 88 years after Sir Campbell’s record run (and 129 years after the Patent-Motorwagen for those keeping track), a new Bentley has claimed the...

  • James May

    While it’s seemed obvious for some time, Top Gear As We Know It is dead. Today’s developments put the nails in that particular coffin: both co-star James May and executive producer Andy Wilman have called it quits from the show. In May’s case, he’s said he won’t work on Top Gear without Jeremy Clarkson, though he will be happy to do any remaining promotional shoots for the 22nd and final Top Gear of the Clarkson Era (C.E.). Executive producer Wilman, a childhood friend of Clarkson’s and one of the driving forces of the show’s transformation from a...

    You might expect Stephen King to employ a more sinister analogy to describe the wicked performance of his Tesla.

  • Top Gear - Season 17

    After the BBC dropped a bombshell yesterday with the announcement that it would not renew Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson's contract, speculation about what will happen to the show has begun. While on screen they showed little love for the co-host they sometimes referred to as "the orangutan," Richard Hammond and James May showed support for Clarkson, and cast doubt about whether Top Gear can continue in its current format without him. "Gutted at such a sad end to an era," Hammond said on Twitter, "We're all three of us idiots in our different ways but it's been an incredible ride together."...
