Our favorite Top Gear presenter finally gets a go in Tesla’s Model S P100D, giving us some of his thoughts on arguably one of the most hyped automobiles out there.

It’s easy to understand why the Model S P100D created such a huge ripple effect in the automotive scene, as it’s basically a long-range electric vehicle that can accelerate faster than almost anything in the market right now.

It’s also a really good road car, offering plenty of room for five or seven passengers and their luggage as well as tons of grip and near-silent comfort, not to mention that it’s supported by the most complete charging infrastructure out there.

Despite all the amazing credentials Tesla’s ultra-fast Model S comes with, and unlike other reviewers, Harris wan’t that impressed by it and makes some very interesting observations, as you can see in the video that follows.

Land Rover Thinks Chris Harris Works On The Grand Tour 30

Posted by Brad Anderson in Chris Harris, Funny, Land Rover, The Grand Tour, Top Gear on 11 30th, 2017


Thanks to the BBC’s decision to end its relationship with Jeremy Clarkson back in 2015, the world now has two great automotive TV shows to enjoy – The Grand Tour and Top Gear.

However, it doesn’t appear as though Land Rover got the message, as evidenced by packages it recently sent to the hosts of The Grand Tour.

Instead of addressing the packages to Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond, one was addressed to Chris Harris, one of the lead presenters of the revamped series of Top Gear.

Jeremy Clarkson took to Instagram to share the embarrassing gaff with his 765,000 followers, almost certainly leaving someone at the Jaguar Land Rover office rather red faced.

However, this does have us thinking. What if The Grand Tour somehow poached Chris Harris from the BBC and will use him as a co-host, potentially as the new driver?

Such a scenario is extremely unlikely but if it were to happen, you wouldn’t hear us complain.

Chris Harris Picks The Best Performance Cars Of 2017 26
Nov
Posted by Brad Anderson in Chris Harris, Top Gear, video on 11 26th, 2017

As part of Top Gear’s ongoing Performance Car of the Year 2017, Chris Harris has selected his seven best performance cars of the past 12 months.

In a field of 13 seriously impressive vehicles, there is a selection of cars that seemed to stand out to the Top Gear host, particularly the brand new 2017 Ford GT, a car that shares more with a Le Mans racer than any of its road-legal rivals.

Elsewhere, the British journalist is a big fan of the way the Lamborghini Huracan Performante drives, even though he hates how it looks. For those familiar with Harris, you’ll know that he has never been a fan of the Huracan, suggesting that it is an understeering mess. With the Performante, Lamborghini seems to have perfected the mid-engine formula.

Other cars selected by Harris include the McLaren 720S and the Porsche 911 GT3. Can you guess which are the rest that made it into his list?

Audi SQ7 And Panamera 4S D Out To Prove Diesels Are Still Cool 7

We’re a little over two years away from the 2020s and the automotive world has already planned its shift to fully-electric vehicles and advanced driver assistance systems.

Fallout from VW’s Dieselgate scandal has effected pretty much all diesel-powered cars in the world as many consumers tend to view these cars a lot differently than before.

Still, from a purely performance related standpoint, you can still have plenty of fun behind the wheel of a diesel, as long as it’s got sufficient power and torque to haul its own mass around with haste.

Starting with the Audi SQ7, it’s powered by a 4.0-liter diesel V8, good for 435 PS and a whooping 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque. In a straight line, it will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds, which is as good as an E92 BMW M3.

As for the Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel, its 4.0-liter V8 churns out a bit less power and torque, at 422 PS and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft), yet since this is a lighter car, it will sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds – make that 4.3 seconds if you get the Sport Chrono Pack.

Anyone daring enough to bet on the Audi SUV?
