So I found out the teacher next door to me at school is a total Top Gear addict too. Moreover I found she was a huge James May fan. So to brighten up her Friday I left this for her on her desk. I am an awesome coworker.  p.s. When she saw it she came running into my room to thank me and tell me that it did make her Friday happy.

Was behind this guy in traffic this morning.  Not Stig? Really? Driving a Lexus in Suburban Atlanta during rush hour? I never would have figured that out.

It’s the brand new Ford S-Max!

Okay, so it’s a people carrier. But it’s always been the most interesting one. First details here.

This is the new Ford S-Max. Okay, so a sensible people carrier perhaps isn’t the Monday morning perk-up you were hoping for, but as family buses go, the S-Max has always been a bit of a winner.

Which probably explains why Ford hasn’t messed with it too much. It’s the same size as before, and the overall silhouette is nigh on identical to the car it replaces; the shapes are broadly similar, the detailing a bit classier. Note the slightly slimmer window line and subtler wheel arches.
It’s a similar vibe up front, with Ford’s signature grille treatment (it’s not like an Aston Martin at all, oh no), more intricate headlights, and the absence of the distinctive spotlights of the old car. At the rear, there looks to be a more steeply raked tailgate, a move to boost rear luggage space, no doubt. [x]

Oldest people IN THE WORLD.

I lost count of how many Top Gear episodes I watched on the first day of the summer holidays.

Some say that his heart is in upside down, and that his teeth glow in the dark… all we know is, he’s called the Stig

There are over a billion cars on the planet today. […] There are over seven billions people on the planet so, in crude statistical terms, there’s only one car for every seven people. There aren’t even enough seats to go around. And, of course, one and a quarter billion of those people live in absolute poverty, so have probably never even been in a car!

The 576bhp Maloo GTS is here
HSV confirms monster version of the Maloo ute. Ready your finest straitjacket.

Holden Special Vehicles, “Australia’s leading performance car manufacturer”, has announced details of a range-topping version of its Maloo pickup. It’s called the GTS, and it’s actually quite mad.

‘Good’ mad, though, and an important bit of news, too. GM - who owns Holden - announced at the end of last year that it will stop building cars in Australia by the end of 2017.
So this Maloo GTS is the one of the last in a long, fine line of mad V8 utes from Aus. As such, it gets GM’s 6.2-litre supercharged LSA V8 engine, producing a big fat 576bhp and 546lb ft of torque.
That s’charged V8 will be bolted onto the Maloo’s VXR8-based chassis, driving either a six-speed manual gearbox or optional six-speed ‘heavy duty’ auto ‘box, driving the rear wheels. No performance times have been presented, but the last Maloo VXR could sprint from 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds and rock on to a limited top speed of 155mph. So it’ll be quick, then. [x]
