Best Car Channels On Youtube
Updated: Apr 27
My husband is a Petrolhead.
For those of you looking for new sources of car themed content, here are some of the shows that seem to be on repeat on our TV screen...
Meet Tyler Hoover. His passion is to go around the US buying and messing around with interesting cars (some that no-one else would consider touching). It's a fun show with many of Tyler's experiments having comedic outcomes, such as when he put a turbo charger in a Toyota Prius, or bought a Ferrari that caught on fire as he tested it out.
Launched in 2016 as an online community for car fanatics by the former Top Gear presenters, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May and Andy Wilman, users can create a profile for themselves, meet others and share information and comments. Most of the content is presented by James May.
Chris Harris has now linked his own show, Chris Harris Drives, to the Top Gear brand, given that he currently presents the popular show. If you dig a little deeper on YouTube though, you can find lots of great videos of what he was producing before e.g. Chris Harris On Cars
Launched in 2011, Car Throttle calls itself the largest social car brand in the world. To get an idea of its scale, you just need to look at the stats on its Linkedin profile, where it says that "it is the largest video publisher in the automotive industry worldwide, with over 200 million monthly views." This is one of the best car shows for lighthearted banter amongst friends, as it involves more than one presenter and feels like a bunch of 30 year olds having fun with cars. Their YouTube videos can be found here.
Aside from being the famous ex presenter of the world famous Tonight Show, Jay Leno has an absolute passion for collecting cars (he has about 180 cars and 160 motorcycles). Jay Leno's Garage sees him travelling around the US discovering interesting cars and the stories behind them, talking to fellow petrolheads and celebrities and looking into the history of iconic car brands.
