Most people know Top Gear as
a mean-spirited documentary series about how long it’ll take three idiots to die if given unlimited access to high-speed vehicles Earth’s greatest car show, but Top Gear also puts out an excellent magazine containing some of the best automotive photography…in the world.
In fact, they’ve just released a gorgeous, half-inch thick softcover tome that consists of the best photos they snapped last year. It’s called Top Gear Portfolio 2012, and it only comes with two problems: 1) it costs $19.99, and 2) the pictures have a big crease down the center.
Mitigating both problems is this selection of high-resolution wallpaper images from the Top Gear website, which are both free and blessedly seamless. That said, it is only 10 pictures, so you still have a good hundred more reasons inside the Portfolio to buy it. Yeah, it’s expensive, but how else can Clarkson afford the payments on his four-axle Rascal? [via Top Gear]
