  • Netflix's "Fastest Car"

    Netflix has announced that it's dipping its proverbial toe more deeply into the water that is automotive television. This means two new shows and a third, "Fastest Car," that is getting renewed for a second season. More automotive content is great for car fans, but while Netflix may be offering original content, the ideas aren’t original. One new show is called “Car Masters: Rust to Riches.” Netflix's press release for the show pitches it as follows: “What does it take to turn $1000 into $100,000? In Car Masters: Rust To Riches, Mark Towle and his team at Gotham Garage...

    If you're not familiar with The Hamster by now, perhaps you're not really all that into cars after all. As one of the trio that delivers the U.K.'s Top Gear television show, and a notorious jet-dragster-crasher, Hammond is now setting out on his own in a solo program for the U.S. The video teaser above gives us our first taste of what to expect from the show. Called Richard Hammond's Crash Course, the new program has already filmed six episodes to be shown on BBC America. The network appears to be banking on Hammond's Top Gear notoriety, as that show is BBC America's top-rated "unscripted"...

    Top Gear USA Season 2 Extended: 8 More Episodes On The Way

    General consensus among Top Gear fans wasn't too positive for the first season of Top Gear USA.

Heck, even if you'd not seen an episode of the UK series it...

    Top Gear USA Season 2 Premiere: Reader Review

    Last night, I ate some frozen pizza (definitely not delivery...) goofed around on my new Android tablet, drove a few dozen miles in the CTS-V Coupe I have in the driveway and generally forgot completely about the season two premiere of Top Gear USA. In other words, I had fun. If you found yourself...

    Last week we learned the BBC's Top Gear would return for its 17th season on June 26. Today, we get a new trailer previewing the mop-headed trio's antics.
