Jeremy Clarkson Has Been Fired From Top Gear

Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson frowning

It’s official! Jeremy Clarkson has been fired from Top Gear. BBC Director-General Tony Hall revealed the fate of the popular TV host via a press statement.

Top Gear is the world’s most widely-watched TV show, and Clarkson is largely to thank for that. However, his seemingly petulant behavior on and off the set got him in trouble on more than one occasion, and the physical altercation with BBC producer Oisin Tymon over a poorly-prepared meal was the final straw.

BBC is holding the position that such behaviour cannot be tolerated and felt it necessary to terminate him. As you can imagine, both Richard Hammond and James May are upset by the decision.

“Gutted at such a sad end to an era,” Hammond said in a statement. “We’re all three of us idiots in our different ways but it’s been an incredible ride together.”

While the future of Top Gear remains a mystery, the BBC plans to continue broadcasting it. Reports have it that Clarkson might be replaced by the venerable Chris Evans, a long-time BBC host who is very well-versed in cars and was once a “Star in the Reasonably Priced Car.”

What do you think about Jeremy Clarkson getting fired? Does it mark the end of Top Gear?

Check Out Andy Murray’s New Jaguar I-Pace

Andy Murray Jaguar iPace electric SUV

Two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has gone electric, fulfilling a promise he made a few months earlier.

Murray made a commitment to “go electric” and become one of the first Jaguar I-Pace customers on World Environment Day, and he wasn’t kidding. Panasonic Jaguar Racing driver and fellow WWF ambassador Nelson Piquet Jr. delivered him an I-Pace at his training camp just in time for World Environment Day on June 6. He stated:

“It’s important we all take small steps to live a more sustainable life and think about the actions we can make to look after our planet. This is one of the reasons I’m making the switch to driving Jaguar’s new all-electric I-Pace. It’s clean and safe, but also has the world class design and sports performance that suits my lifestyle.”

Unlike the Chevrolet Bolt and Nissan LEAF, the Jaguar I-Pace is proof that you don’t have to sacrifice power or performance when you switch to electric. In addition to looking athletic, it’s fast and can travel up to 240 miles (386 km) on a single charge.

Kia Niro EV Concept Previews Kia’s Long-Range Electric CUV

Kia Niro Electric Crossover Concept

For those that like or are even considering getting the Kia Niro plugin hybrid, but want more electrification, the Kia Niro EV Conept is a preview of what’s to come.

Unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Expo, the full-electric crossover is just a concept, but Kia has already stated a specific range of 238 miles (383 km), which, as it turns out, is the exact same range that the Chevrolet Bolt EV launched with. A coincidence? The Korean automaker isn’t the type to play games, so likely not.

The elimination of an international combustion engine renders a traditional grille unnecessary, with the Niro EV featuring a smooth interactive display panel instead. It is powered by powered by a next-generation electric vehicle powertrain that pairs a 64 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack with a 150 kW electric motor.

Designers opted for a minimalistic interior boasting new technologies, including an advanced pedestrian warning system that uses multiple front-view cameras, object-recognition technology and front speakers to detect and alert pedestrians or cyclists of the car’s presence. The system also uses the grille-mounted display to provide visual communication.

The production Kia Niro EV will be one of the first long-range crossovers available when it launches, as well as just one of 16 new green vehicles that Kia will introduce by 2025, including a new hydrogen-powered, fuel-cell electric vehicle sometime in 2020.

Guess Who Got A Lamborghini Huracan? The Pope!

Pope Lamborghini Huracán Supercar

As the “holiest of holy men”, Pope Francis has been living big and is often the recipient of some rather lavish gifts. Lamborghini for one gave him a brand-new, custom-designed Huracán LP 580-2 supercar!

Finished in Monocerus White with Tiberio Yellow accents all around — the official colors of the Vatican — the rear-wheel drive, 580-horsepower Huracán was handed over to the Pope in a special ceremony held in Vatican City.

Someone of such stature doesn’t much use for an Italian supercar, not to mention Vatican City is far too small and crowded for crazy speeds and drifting. He appears very content with his 1984 Renault 4 anyways.

Instead, Pope Francis sent his Lamborghini Huracan to be auctioned off, with the proceeds going to three sperate charities.

A base price of approximately $200,000 makes the Huracán 580-2 the most affordable Lamborghini. However, the fact that this example has been signed and blessed by the Pope has undoubtedly shot its value through the roof.

Still, just imagine driving on the Nurburgring and seeing Pope Francis speed by you in a Lamborghini…
