Ughh. Get Hammond to drive it. He's the only one who really likes American cars.

As entertaining as Clarkson is, if a car doesn't cost an arm and a leg to buy, he won't like it too much.

I think it will be fun to hear what he has to say, although I don't think he'll like it very much.

Sweet! I just saw the first segment of the first episode when they test the Bentley...I was drooling the whole time.

Looking forward to the Camaro Test Drive!

I predict a 1:27 and Jeremy will like driving the car, but won't like it on the whole. Too bad CastTV only has tonights episode :( I guess we have to wait a few more weeks

Good catch and thanks for sharing!!!

now just an update, top gear loved the monaro (pontiac GTO in america), and the commodore (pontiac G8 in america), which are made by the Holden division of GM that supervised the production of the camaro, and also share the same underpinnings as the camaro, but the camaro is a lot heavier.

Well I know their expectations are going to be low, let's hope the car suprises them big time... Just be ready for mullet jokes.

yeah i thought about that segment when i first heard they were going to review it. I don't think they had tested the Holden/VXR8 yet though at that point. So he's just basing it on his knowledge of "general" american cars.

I have a feeling it will end up being a good review. Because this car does all the things that they loved about the VXR8. It's basically the same car haha

It's actually not heavier at all.

the VXR8 was about 4100 lbs

at best the Camaro is a touch lighter if not equal

I'm actually 50/50 on this one. They did love the VXR8, which is basically a G8. Top Gear is awesome regardless, by far my favorite car show

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.
OOO!!! Thanks!!!

I love that show because it's not only about cars - it's about fun. Sure - they hate about everything American, but they poke fun at us about as much as they do themselves; that's fine by me. What I wouldn't give for several laps around their track
