Exclamation Camaro to be on Top Gear, Season 15, episode 3! (to be reviewed by Richard Hammond)

As reported on CAMARO5 HOMEPAGE.

For all you Top Gear fans out there, the new season kicked off today in the UK. Being a fan, I looked up an episode guide and saw that episode 3 this season (set to air July 11th), lists the Camaro as one of the cars they test!!! It should be interesting... Jeremy Clarkson typically isn't a fan of most American cars, but it should be great to watch no matter what.

Agreed. And even with the ZR1 it took him around 500 miles to warm up to it and a 176mph run on the salt flats. It will be interesting to see which parts they complain about the most though! lol

He'll get all giddy like a school girl while he's doing burnouts and stuff. Then he'll go on to say it's rubbish. He'll definitely call the interior rubbish and very "American." He will probably make some comments about it being big and heavy just like the Americans. He may also say brilliant a few times when talking about the acceleration or feel of the large v8, but he'll immediately follow with more reasons the car is rubbish.

Richard Hammond, Clarkson's co-host. You know..the little guy

In all honesty I think the camaro will surprise clarkson. sure he will be quick to point out how un-perfect it is but im sure once he puts the throttle down he will say that non of that stuff matters.

Oh Man I cannot wait this is by far my favorit show. To bad you cannot get uncensored dvd copies here in USA. His favorit car is the GT40 which he bought, and I think the first quirky thing he will say is he wont fit in it like so many other cars. I'm confident he wont like it much and for every compliment will be two or three complaints, followed by only in America, but how do we drive them with our Mcdonald hamburger bellies getting in the way. With all that I still am going to set the DVR. Like I said I love this show just like I love my car.

Here's what he will say about it.

It's too big, the blind spots are enormous, it's heavier than Oprah, the interior is rubbish, the gearbox is sloppier than Oprah at an all you can eat buffet and it's American.

Maybe since he's a 7-foot tall freak, he may feel comfortable in the Camaro compared to say, a Lotus Elise.

go to www.finalgear.com you can download every episode that has existed in all 15 seasons in the full 1 hour unedited fantasticness.

Usually about 2 hours after it airs in the UK, it's up on that site so you can watch them they day the come out as well. I bought an external hard drive and went to town on the downloading haha I have 80 Gb of JUST Top Gear on it haha, all 14 seasons and the new one from last night.

The Reliant Robin film actually made me laugh out loud. When he skidded it by the news reporter in the background on it's roof I just lost it haha. It was staged, but still hilarious.

I think he'll like the camaro actually, because it's cheap compared to other things in it's performance range. They tend to like bang for the buck. And they LOVED the Vauxhall VXR8, which was basically a Holden Monaro, and that was basically a Pontiac G8. This is just a more sporty version of that. It'll start off with all the things he hates about it, interior, blind spots etc etc, but he'll do a 180 surprise in the middle and end up loving it.
