Fifth Gear Camaro SS Review - by Jason Plato [VIDEO]
 
Featured on CAMARO5 HOMEPAGE.


Fifth Gear, the second most popular automotive show out of England, has now gotten its hands on the Camaro SS for their own review. A rally yellow Camaro SS is flogged by co-host Jason Plato (himself an accomplished racing driver). The episode just aired within the last couple of hours, but we bring you the video below.

So how does he like the Camaro SS? We won't ruin it for you, but can say that there's plenty of smiles and giggles from Jason. And although it's not all praise for the Camaro, he does end the segment by saying that the "SS does a better job than any muscle car before and is guaranteed to make you giggle!"

* Please be respectful in your responses even if you don't agree with the review.







Fifth Gear also previously reviewed the V6 Camaro in this special web episode: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=37214

This episode just aired (for the first time) within the last few hours in the UK.

Sweet.......they did one of the 3.6 too waaaay back, and loved the car.

swizz 07-22-2010 05:39 PM

LMAO, dude was having a ton of fun with the car. Yep Camaro WINS.

That was fun to watch..I would "LOVE" to drive my car somewhere like that.

quickthinkofausername 07-22-2010 05:53 PM

Thats more like it... I am still angry over the Top Gear comparo. I like my "Yank tank" and yes it does evoke lots of giggles, no joke!

Camarobrasil 07-22-2010 05:57 PM

I remember one episode where they did a straight up race and the guy driving a c6 vette lost to a NSX :laugh:

wrek 07-22-2010 05:59 PM

Cool, and I love Top Gear.. even if they don't like our cars... Richard Hammond liked the Camaro though, but I'm not sure that helps. ;)

I still respect some of the points of the other review, but this one seemed a lot more objective. This review turned out a lot better, and had less of an entertainment value to it. It was a bit less fun to me, but I value what I considered objective opinions.

Notice the PERMA-GRIN.

Nice to see the car put to test that way, I think he was right on the money with his review.

04Ram2500Hemi 07-22-2010 06:11 PM

I think they did a good job w/ the review. Top Gear was fun, but the car they compared it to wasn't fair.

bakon's camaro SS 07-22-2010 06:17 PM

damn that looks so much fun!!!

Ah just noticed you are in Canada. I was going to say uhhh Europe usually gets electronics after the USA.

nova 07-22-2010 06:37 PM

Much better than the "look how pretty it is, slide around some corners, now how does this $85k Mercedes compare" pile of ridiculous that Top Gear did. These guys actually spent more than 5 seconds talking about the car that was nominally the subject of the review....
