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.

Does anyone agree with me there?
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

You have to consider the source and region....A car with a V8 and lots of muscle is a "muscle car" in Europe.

Also, Hammond did BS a bit. The AMG is a 6.3L and not a 6.2L (not that it makes the comparison any more fair).

The better comparison for them would've been with an M3 or Audi V8 which are both available in 2 doors and both are kick ass cars that could potentially put the hurt on a Camaro on the TG test track but still cost twice as much.

that episode was quite good. I am disappointed that they compared it to an AMG. Whatever, great episode.

I love Top gear and its very entertaining. And just being truthful Bone stock Camaros, Aren't that impressive. Its nearly a 4000 pound car with 426hp, and it needs it to post up decent performance figures. I think each and everyone of us who owns a Camaro fully REALIZES that there are faster cars then the Camaro which probably can be had cheaper. With that being said , we also realize that the Camaros presence is HARD to match.

And just as everyone else as said.

Horrible comparison, it's a completely different market share. Can you really even call anything that isn't from the US a "Muscle Car"?

Personally, I think not.

ya that tall guy is a douche he just doesnt understand...
the other little guy however does understand and thats why he said he would still have the camaro.
that other car was ugly and should not be considered a muscle car. it looked like a rich mans family car.
