Not too bad. Would have liked to see a review of the car itself, not a comparo. Especially to a car twice the price...

Anyone who watches this over in Europe will immediately see that a car costing $40,000 less is pretty much an equal in the speed dept. stock vs stock. Add a bolt-on and the Camaro wipes the floor clean against the AMG at the same track. Make it a stick shift instead of the automatic they tested and it would have done better as well.

Oh I know the Camaro did very well here and the guy wanted the Camaro in the end. It's just kind of weird to see an SS compared to an AMG.

I agree it is an odd car to compare it to. It was probably filmed before the 5.0 GT was released. Are Challengers available in England?

$100,000 AMG with 520hp 465tq vs $40,000 Camaro SS 426hp 420tq... both weight about the same...
and the AMG won? SHOCKING!!!

I guess we'll have to wait until there exists a Z28 to get a proper review and not a comparison..

I don't know why they compared the Camaro to the AMG. It's an apples and oranges situation but I predicted what would happen. I knew the AMG would be faster, but I knew that Hammond would prefer the Camaro. Great episode. This will be on iTunes in HD in a few months...

The Camaro was slow as balls but it appeared to be an L99 SS, which I would not want on the TG test track.

I watch his shows regularly and enjoy them. But they have a serious bias. I.E. frequent watchers are aware of their list that they rank all cars with. When they did their analysis of the Monaro, it was seriously raining and the track they used was nearly a swamp. Yet they used the numbers posted on a wet track, with cars that were tested on a perfectly dry test. But they are funny and offer some enjoyable entertainment

Dear Murderers-

I've always loved TOP GEAR and I always will. But they flip flop back and forth with reviews.

This one says they like it, a few episodes from now they will call it back and say they don't like it, or point out all of the flaws compared to some other car that they are testing at that time.

Jeremy did this with the Corvette. He tested it here in Ca. and said he loved it, then recently tested it vs another car and said that he didn't like it very much anymore but he did say the Vette was a better choice of the 2 for the fun factor.

You keep saying $40,000 - But he said it was £40,000 - in other words, $60,280 US dollars. That's a helluva markup.

Just FYI.

there is no such thing as a foreign muscle car. that's an AMERICAN PHRASE. No one can take that from us.

man, I am dissapointed that the Camaro review part is so short. I wished they talked more about the options of the Camaro.. Driving style, turning off TC/SC, etc. Richard seemed to be focused too much on the AMG. I was really looking forward to this episode, and now i feel pretty crappy lol. w/e though, Hammond was still fair, and he liked the Camaro =D Which is a 2 thumbs up for me =D
