Leave it up to the Top Gear crew to put this one together. No, not the famous British crew of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May; the staff behind this video of a Peugeot 207 rally car going up against a downhill skier hails from Italy and represents Top Gear Magazine.
Of course, before any downhill festivities can properly commence, the car needs to make its way up the mountain course… and that’s when the magic starts to happen, making use of the most serious set of spiked tires we’ve ever seen.
What goes up, must come down, right? And so down it goes, chasing the Pug’s co-pilot, Anna Andreussi, right back down from whence it came. It’s all in good fun, with plenty of aerial acrobatics to go along with the expected snow drifting shenanigans. See it all go down yourself in the video below.

Top Gear magazine has officially named the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque its Car Of The Year for 2011 after snagging top honors in the SUV category. Perhaps even more impressively, Jeremy Clarkson also named the Evoque his favorite vehicle of 2011. The compact luxury SUV faced off against the likes of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe, McLaren MP4-12C and Ferrari FF among more common offerings. Top Gear celebrated in classic style by taking the Evoque on an African adventure through the deserts and mountains of Morocco. Sure beats handing an anonymous executive some cheesy trophy on stage.
Readers can find the full tale in any of the magazine’s 29 international editions. Clarkson was joined by Richard Hammond, James May, Top Gear magazine editor-in-chief Charlie Turner and the publication’s full editorial and road testing staff in picking the 2011 car of the year. The crew isn’t the only batch of writers to honor the Evoque. The model has soaked up 34 international awards since it debuted. Follow the jump for the full press release.

The Philippines outpost of Top Gear Magazine is out to snag as many Facebook likes as possible by August 31. You see, the publication just crafted its 77th issue, and to mark the occasion, it is hoping to pull down at least 77,000 Facebook likes by the magic date (no, we’re not sure what the significance is the No. 77 is, either). If fans help make it happen, the magazine promises to paint editor-in-chief Vernon B. Sarne’s personal car bright pink. What does he drive? Well, that’s not exactly clear, but we do know that Sarne will have to drive his girly machine for a full year before being allowed to change the color.
Cruel? Sure, but this is the internet, and like any good-natured citizen of the world wide web, we demand the satisfaction of watching a colleague trudge to work behind the wheel of a vehicle that’s more suited for stocking the Barbie aisle than cruising to the office. To the Facebooks! Hit the jump to watch the Pink Panther-inspired video for yourself.

It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for: the imminent return of everyone’s favorite car show, Top Gear. The hit BBC television program has been on break since the 16th season ended on February 27 with episode 6, in which Hammond drove the Porsche 959 and Ferrari F40, May tested NASA’s new lunar rover and Clarkson raced the sun in a Jaguar XJ.
Now FinalGear.com – the website that tracks everything Top Gear – reports that the new season (that’s #17 if you’re counting) will begin airing on June 12. The report comes courtesy of the May issue of the Dutch edition of Top Gear magazine.
So what can we expect from season 17? Hard to say – so far we know Clarkson and May have driven a pair of electric cars, we’ve heard the newly-wed Prince Harry could be making his way to the Dunsfold Aerodrome (a.k.a. the Top Gear test track) and we’ve seen reports that the McLaren MP4-12C may have already claimed the fastest lap time on the board. For everything else, we’ll just have to wait (less than a month now, mind you) to find out.
Top Gear Magazine may find itself under new rulers soon. The BBC has put the magazine up for sale alongside titles like Radio Times and Gardeners’ World, and so far four publishing houses have expressed interest in nabbing the lot. Chief among those are the rival German companies Bauer and Burda. According to reports, Bauer has submitted a bid of around £100 million, or around $161 million at current conversion rates. That figure tops the £70 million bid that British houses Haymarket and Future have thus far submitted for the publications.
It’s clear that Bauer wants to own the trio of magazines, though the move would have to be approved by the BBC Trust first. Since Bauer already owns two other magazines that would directly compete with Radio Times, red flags may start popping up on that deal soon.
Meanwhile, it’s thought that if Burda takes the reins, some of the magazines’ operations may be moved to Germany in short order.
