PostHeaderIcon Watch Chris Harris Get Excited As He Looks Over a Bunch of Mint Condition Classics from the Past 40 Years

There aren’t many car presenters out there that can Chris Harris’ reputation, but he built it on the fact that he genuinely likes cars and through the way he conveys his thoughts. I mean there aren’t many better videos for car enthusiasts than this one that he did for Top Gear where he travels to a warehouse packed with mint condition classics.

PostHeaderIcon Did Jerry Seinfeld Really Sell a Fake 1958 Porsche 356A for $1.5 Million?

You may remember that back in early 2016 we covered Jerry Seinfeld’s announced auction of several of his classic Porsche models – all of which eventually sold for some $22-million in total. One of the cars he sold then has been proven to not be authentic and he’s now being sued for $1.5-million.

PostHeaderIcon Car Girl of the Week: Woman.Driven

Say hello our featured car girl of the week – Woman.Driven! Her real name is Doris, and long story short, she she can do a whole lot more than just look sexy in front of some high-spec machinery. No sir, Woman.Driven isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty in the garage, and when the wrenches are down, she’s more than eager to climb behind the wheel and get it done on the track.

As of this writing, Woman.Driven has amassed an impressive 14,200 followers on Instagram and nearly 73,000 subscribers on YouTube.

Not only is she gorgeous, but there’s no doubt she’s got the performance bug in a big way. Her main ride is a 2018 Shelby GT350, which in stock form lays down 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque thanks to its 5.2-liter V-8. However, as evidenced by Woman.Driven’s numerous car modification videos, “stock” just isn’t gonna cut it.

Other highlight rides in this lady’s garage include a 2017 Nissan GT-R, a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, a 2015 BMW M4, a 2018 Camaro ZL1, and a 2018 Ford Raptor. Woman.Driven is a true enthusiast – if it’s fast and runs on four wheels, it’s game on!

PostHeaderIcon Instagram Girl of the Week: Sophiacalate (and a Mercedes G350d)

Remember Supercar Blondie? This is one of her rivals, 26-year-old Sophia Calate from Germany who’s amassed almost 43,000 followers on Instagram and now poses on a brand-new Mercedes G-Wagon powered by the 3.0-liter, six-cylinder, diesel. The result? An even better-looking Tirolean scenery.

The brand-new G-Class was unveiled last year and we all know it’s bigger than ever before while retaining the classic boxy appearance. But have you ever noticed how good it looks in cherry red parked on the Austrian snow next to a lake? As Sophia correctly points out in her Instagram post that has effortlessly collected over 4,000 likes, the name of the color is actually “Designo Hyazinthrot metallic,” and it’s quite unusual for the G-Wagon, which is usually seen in funeral shades of silver or black.

The G350d is less bonkers that the V-8-engined AMG model although it still packs 283 horsepower and 442.5 pound-feet of torque, enough to send this block of metal from 0 to 62 mph in just 7.4 seconds and then on to a top speed of 123 mph. Inside, the G now has big screens on the dash and, in the middle, there are the controls for the faultless 9-speed transmission. You still, obviously, get three locking diffs which are very useful if you too want to tackle the Austrian mountainside this season.

Sophia asks in her post, “would you drive this as a Diesel?”, and we’re passing this question down to you! Send your thoughts in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon The Grand Tour Will Return For a Fourth Season, But Under a New Format

Good news for fans of The Grand Tour: The show is returning for a fourth season. Bad news for fans of The Grand Tour: The show’s studio-dominated configuration is getting the heave-ho. That’s the word from Amazon, which announced the renewal of the hit motoring show for Season 4, albeit with big changes in the way for the upcoming season. There’s no timetable on when Season 4 comes out, but don’t expect it to air until 2020. Season 3 hasn’t even come out yet; that’s on schedule to première on January 18, 2019.

PostHeaderIcon Believe it or Not, Elon Musk is a Gamer – His Favorites Might Surprise You

PostHeaderIcon Starman and Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster Cruise Past Mars on the Way to Deep Space Nine

SpaceX shared Starman’s current position in a diagram, showing that the Roadster has reached beyond Mars.

PostHeaderIcon Ice-T Arrested After Driving His New McLaren 720S Over George Washington Bridge Without Paying the Toll

Rapper and actor Ice-T was arrested earlier this week for on allegations that he evaded paying a toll on the New Jersey side of the George Washington Bridge. The veteran actor was reportedly in the E-ZPass lane with his brand-new McLaren 720S, which didn’t have license plates, either. The actor told cops that he simply forgot to bring his E-ZPass with him, adding that he actually has seven of them. Ultimately, he was allowed to leave the scene after receiving a ticket for the unregistered supercar.

PostHeaderIcon Matt LeBlanc and Rory Reid Exit As Hosts of Top Gear

PostHeaderIcon It Looks Like North Korea’s Kim Jong Un Swapped his Mercedes for a New Rolls-Royce Phantom

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is known to have a taste for fancy luxury cars, and it appears that his latest ride is none other than a Rolls-Royce Phantom. Kim
arrived at his meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the luxury sedan — eagle-eyed observers saw the Rolls-Royce logo on the car’s wheel center caps — prompting speculation that the North Korean president has a new ride to go along with the Mercedes-Maybach Pullman Grand armored limousine that he used during his summit with his South Koran counterpart, Moon Jae-in, earlier this year.

PostHeaderIcon Marilyn Monroe’s 1956 Ford Thunderbird Up for Auction Next Month

A 1956 Ford Thunderbird belonging to the late Marilyn Monroe is going up for auction at Julien’s Auctions’ Icons and Idols Auction on November 16. The iconic American actress owned the Raven Black Thunderbird between 1955 and 1962. The car has an estimated value between $250,000 and $500,000, though, considering the provenance behind it, including the fact that arguably one of the biggest Hollywood celebrities in history owned it, the selling price could go through the roof.

PostHeaderIcon Three Burt Reynolds Movie Cars Sell for $330K in Vegas

The last three cars belonging to the late Burt Reynolds were auctioned off by Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas in late September, raising $330,000 for the Burt Reynolds Institute in the process. Of the three cars, two were 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Ams, while the other was a 1987 Chevrolet R30 pickup truck. All three vehicles belonged to Reynolds’ car collection, and all of them were personally autographed by the recently deceased Hollywood legend.

PostHeaderIcon Elon Musk Accused of Fraud, SEC Sues to Remove Him from Tesla

Elon ‘Controversy’ Musk is in the news yet again. This time, it seems serious. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has accused Musk of fraud. What fraud, you ask? The agency says he made a series of “false and misleading” tweets about potentially taking Tesla private last month. They want him fired from Tesla.

PostHeaderIcon Don Panoz Legacy and Influence In the World of Cars And Motorsport

I will start what can only be considered as a eulogy for the late Donald Don Panoz, who died on September, 11 at his home in Duluth, Georgia with an official statement from Panoz LLC:

“Possibly most widely celebrated for saving sports car racing in North America or inventing the dermatological patch, ironically so for those that knew him and his smoking habits, the technology behind the nicotine patch, Panoz was a man known for questioning the norm. If someone told him ‘no,’ he told them ‘yes.’ This was the personality and the motivation behind the man, that can safely be said, has left a legacy of success and technological developments, not just in one industry, but across many.”

PostHeaderIcon Fast and Furious 9 Starts Filming on April 20, 2019

A day after Dwayne Johnson announced the start of production of Hobbs and Shaw comes another announcement related to the Fast and Furious movie franchise: Fast and Furious 9 will start production on April 20, 2019. Not much is known about the movie’s plot, but it is tentatively scheduled to hit theaters a year later in the spring of 2020.

PostHeaderIcon Burt Reynolds, Star of “Smokey and the Bandit”, Has Passed Away at 82

Known for his charm, sex appeal, and swagger, not to mention his famous mustache, Burt Reynolds was one of those actors that was just impossible not to like. Today, Reynolds passed away after suffering cardiac arrest. He was 82.

Born in southern Georgia and later ending up in Florida, Reynolds’ early life revolved around sports, earning a football scholarship to Florida State University. However, following a series of injuries, Reynolds diverted his attention to a career in acting.

Early roles included a spot in the TV series “Gunsmoke,” but Reynolds is best known for his performances in major films like “Deliverance,” “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” and “Boogie Nights.” Reynolds also directed and produced throughout his career.

However, for us here at TopSpeed, “Smokey and the Bandit” is our go-to memory for Reynolds. Released in 1977, the film is an action comedy featuring the Pontiac Trans-Am, and depicts an illegal high-speed run to deliver beer from Texas to Atlanta in just 28 hours. Bo “Bandit” Darville (played by Reynolds) takes up the challenge, but after picking up the attractive hitchhiker Carrie (Sally Field), Bandit finds himself running from Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason).

We’ll definitely be rewatching that classic very soon.

PostHeaderIcon Richard Hammond Supposedly Gassed and Robbed in Saint-Tropez Villa

The family of The Grand Tour host Richard Hammond was reportedly the targets of a burglary while they were vacationing at Saint-Tropez, in France. According to the Sunday Express, Hammond, his wife Mindy, daughter Willow, and 12 other people were staying at a luxury villa in the posh coastal town on the French Riviera when intruders broke into their house and stole money and valuables, all while Hammond and the rest of the houseguests were sleeping.

PostHeaderIcon The U.K. Still Loves Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May

Despite changing networks — ok, Amazon isn’t a traditional network — and continents, the trio of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May are still massively popular in the U.K. That much was proven by a report from British broadcasting regulator Ofcom, which revealed that the second season of The Grand Tour was the second-most streamed show in the U.K. The only show that beat it happens to be a 24-year old sitcom about buddies that ended its run 14 years ago. Outside of that, The Grand Tour’s popularity in the trio’s old stomping grounds is a good sign that their fans haven’t left their side.
