Hopefully we'll see a longer review sometime soon. I love these guys, they do stupid stuff all the time (like a camaro vs an AMG) but they are entertaining. I think GM needs to add the "redneck button" for 2012 like the AMG had. Funny how the camaro stereo type translates overseas. Murders isn't quite the stereotype here, somehow mullets and wife beater t-shirts turn into murders across the Atlantic. Thanks for whomever got this posted up, we'll have to wait several months to catch this on BBC America.

Did they want to downplay the performance of the Camaro by pitting it against something twice the price?

I always have to remember...these TopGear Episodes are hilarious...but I tend to laugh AT them...not with'em...(who drives a Fiesta and a Vette through a mall, really?!)
To be honest with you, I think they do these odd pairings just so they can get to drive as many cars as possible..lol. I'm seriously betting its time constraints. Besides, it worked in our favor. Instead of getting 5 minutes of praise for the car and five minutes negativity, We got 5 minutes of how good the Camaro is and 5 minutes on how the Mercedes is better. Trust me, thats alot better than them picking the car apart for 5 minutes.

I have been watching Top gear for a long time. I don't get upset because they bash certain cars. Its only entertainment. I bet if Fifth Gear reviews the Camaro, and the reviews are not perfect, there will be complaints too.

These are the cars own by the presenter of Top Gear. Hammond owns a couple of American cars. Clarkson owns a few Fords.

Richard Hammond's car collections:
Left-hand drive Porsche 911 Carrera 2s, 4 Land Rovers, a Suzuki GSXR1000, a BMW 1150 GS, a second Porsche 911, a Porsche 928, a Morgan V6 Roadster, a 1967 Ford Mustang GT390, Morgan Aeromax, Dodge Challenger SRT8 and an Opel Kadett.

Jeremy Clarkson's car collections:
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, Volvo 850 R (his wife called it the Terminator), Alfa Romeo 164, Ford Escort RS Cosworth, Ford GT, Ford Cortina, 1980s Alfa Romeo GTV6, Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, Ferrari F355, 2 VW Sciroccos, Jaguar XJR, BMW 3.0 CSL, BMW Z1, Toyota Land Cruiser Amazon, Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG, Aston Martin V8 Vantage (for his wife), Ford Focus, Mercedes-Benz 600, Land Rover Defender, Mercedes-Benz CLK-AMG Black Series, Volvo XC90[60], Caterham Seven R500 (for his wife), Range Rover TDV8 Vogue SE[61], Austin-Healey Sprite.

So neither of them have ever owned a GM product?

The Camaro is stupid.

And this Maserati is "idiotic":


which they chose over the Panamera and the Rapide. See the pattern? Much a knickers in a bunch about nothing.

When I was in Manchester 2 years ago i was out to dinner with a few of our Briitish customers and we were talking Top Gear. They were amazed that I was a fan and especially my love for Clarkson. They were quick to point out that he hates Americans and thinks we're all fat stupid red necks. I replied that's why I like him, because he's right.

This thread just re-enforces that stereotype.

Wow a euro car show threw in a euro car and $60k+ more in cost, and then picked the euro car to win. Shocker.

Next we'll have a comparison of a Honda Accord and a Porsche Carrera, then we'll all act surprised when the German judges pick the Porsche.
