Oh, don't get me wrong...(I forgot to preface...) The Mustang is a good car - if the Camaro wasn't coming out, I would've gotten one. However, when they make a remark about the Mustang being America's best...I call on that. Sorry if I offended you. I hold Ford no ill will.


Company 'T', on the other hand........

then you're going to like hearing me defend the Mustang on this one.

1. the track is dusty... that limits the Mustang's ability to grip the track.

2. contrary to what Clarkson says, that is a 4.0L V6 Mustang... had it been a GT, it WOULD have beaten the horse... I think we all know that a Civic Si is faster than a V6 Mustang.

3. this test is so blatantly ant-American car that its silly to even talk about


its just sad that Top Gear feels so poorly about the Mustang... they pretend that this is the V8 Mustang when it isn't... when they tested the GT500, they dynoed it and then were all butt hurt about the fact that it dynoed less than 500rwhp (it dynoed 465rwhp, which, if you add in the 15%, is over 500hp at the crank)... and then they dynoed a '68 390 powered GT Mustang and pretended like the "390" was about the horsepower, not the size of the engine... :wtf: I think they're just mad that all of the British motor companies are foreign owned... if they had been better at making cars, they'd still be British independent companies

well put, and at the time of that video the mustang was the best... because the challenger wasn't available for testing and the camaro still isn't

After looking at some other related videos, he does give some good praise to the Corvette Z06. Also, the piece on the history of the Mustang is very respectful and positive towards the car. But then he does things like pick a 1989 Lincoln and sees if it can hold any water (the answer is no). I think Clarkson likes american cars as toys, but would never want to be seen driving one without being paid to do so.

that show is obviously not impartial. I do enjoy it though. They seem to keep it tounge in cheek. But they definitely blur the facts a bit.
