Have some extra time on your hands during lockdown? Well, we've compiled a list of interesting motoring-related YouTube channels (in addition to our own, of course) to keep you entertained while you're stuck indoors. Of course, there's a wealth of automotive channels on the platform, so it's difficult to know where to invest your time (and data!). We pick seven of the very best. Click on the channel name to start watching. And enjoy!

Harry’s garage

The founder of EVO magazine, full-time farmer, knowledgeable car enthusiast and all-round good guy Harry Metcalfe offers real-life reviews of his personal cars and new cars, as well as provides insights on the daily running of his collection. There's a wide variety of cars and motorcycles on the channel and even some interesting road trips. If you have the time, do watch the two-part video of his trip to see the Northern Lights and cross the Artic Circle in a 1969 Rolls-Royce Shadow (which he bought on ebay for £4100)!


In a similar manner to a magazine, these bunch of enthusiasts offer first drives and launch reports as well as behind-the-scenes chats with industry experts. There are also a few throwbacks to some interesting classics along the way. Respected automotive journalist Henry Catchpole presents most of the videos and if you wondered what cars you’ve missed after the Geneva Motor Show was cancelled, they’ve covered most of them.

Hoovies Garage

Ever wondered what it would be like to buy the cheapest second-hand Rolls-Royce Phantom or Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster (or even a Mercedes-Benz S600 V12 for $4 500)? Well, that's exactly what Tyler Hoover does and it's rather interesting to witness the trials and tribulations of his adventures – even if it is in a very "American" kind of way...

Doug DeMuro

He might come across simply as your typical next-door neighbour, but nobody does in-depth, detail-by-detail reviews of a car like this guy. Apart from new-car reviews, the most interesting videos show exotic, rare and classic cars that Doug comes across. How about two videos totalling 49 minutes on the very rare Vector W8?

Jay Leno’s Garage

As eclectic as his collection might be, former talk show host Jay Leno’s channel doesn’t just feature his own cars and bikes, but also new vehicles that are brought to his garage for a review. There are also details on his restoration projects as well as information on the latest technology when it comes to the restorations themselves. Jay’s knowledge and passion are evident and it's great to see these vehicles taken out on the road for a drive or ride.

Engineering Explained

If you really want to not just know but truly understand the finer technical details of the motoring world, Jason Fenske explains it all for you here. How is Koenigsegg able to extract 447 kW from a 2,0-litre, three-cylinder engine? And why was Tesla’s Cybertruck tug-of-war pointless? Find out here...


As opposed to the channels mentioned above, Petrolicious offers an almost romantic look at owners and their cars from across the globe. These videos take you into some spectacular collections and tell the story behind the owner and the ownership experience. Be in a relaxed mood when you tune into this channel...
