Does anyone agree with me there?
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...

How many stock cars can you list that can break into the 12's for under 38k?

It's very unfair for the Camaro to be reviewed by a party which already has a bias from the beginning of the review. There can be no fair judgment. The guys over at Top Gear love sport-luxury/exotic supercars, if a car doesn't remotely come close to those type of cars, they bash them.

I mean come on, your comparing a Camaro to a AMG? Which in America cause triple the price? lol. Seriously. The funny thing is,to them the Camaro may be known as the perfect car for a red-neck, but if any owner were to invest a fraction of the cost of the AMG into the Camaro, such as 9,000 dollars, or sometimes less, you'd have a faster car on every level. It would wipe the floor with AMG's ass then send them back home with they're tails tucked.

So owners, don't take those insults seriously because the Camaro is so much more of a car than that thing. What the AMG has is more luxury than anything, that's what people are paying for, with the addition of high-performance. What would have been funny was if Top Gear compared the "Hennessey HPE550 to the AMG",.....that would have been rape on soo many levels. Then we'd not only be murderers, we'd be rapist!

Hell, if you wanna talk money vs performance, Hennessey Camaro's would out-perform the AMG, heavily, and still for LESS MONEY. So if I'm going to do a comparison, I'm going to compare cars which have around the same cost, not a 40k car vs 100k car. That's just silly. But I did enjoy seeing the Camaro take those corners, it did so well! Looked beautiful. Great handling!

When they did a review a couple of seasons ago they reviewed a Mustang GT and talked about the Roush GT and even Clarkson said he liked the Roush GT...so when we have the Z28 maybe they will also test the Henessey Camaro

I love Top Gear, yes they can be very biased at times but it makes for a great show. If it wasnt the LS3 M6 then we need to protest and have them run it again......127.9.......really? They looked to be neck and neck the whole way. SS vs. AMG seriously, AMG is a high performance division for Mercedes. They should of reviewed it against the mustang or challenger instead. If they didnt want to do that then they should of used a high performance outside source for the camaro like Hennessey. Well at least they gave it some credit and i am so glad Hammond was the one reviewing it, at least he appreciates it.
Either way im glad the camaro finally made the show and despite what they said....i absolutely adore this car, thank you so much GM for bringing it back
P.S. Excellent color combination: IOM with black stripes

Ive seen 2010 wrx sti's bone stock hit high 12s, 2011 Mustang GT'S ,2010 GT'S with a set of slicks with stock 3.73 gears, maybe your right not a whole lot. But just being honest. Theres a host of cars that can be had cheaper and modded cheaper and put up the same figures. Just being realistic. Not that i'd trade my Camaro for any of them.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
The Camaro looks great and is really just a re bodied G8/Maloo
Ricer is pretty harsh
Are you saying the G8 looks like a Ricer in Camaro undies?
I am here because I like the look of the Camaro too

been watching top gear for a while but that comparison sucked, it was all about the Mercedes more than anything . You figured they would spend some more time on the car they haven't seen. Anyhow maybe thats why they compared it to a 90 thousand dollar car because they had nothing in the same price range that could put up the numbers. Anyhow when they put the numbers on the board they put it right next to a 911 gt porche.
