I'm actually 50/50 on this one. They did love the VXR8, which is basically a G8. Top Gear is awesome regardless, by far my favorite car show

The Reliant Robin film actually made me laugh out loud. When he skidded it by the news reporter in the background on it's roof I just lost it haha. It was staged, but still hilarious.

I think he'll like the camaro actually, because it's cheap compared to other things in it's performance range. They tend to like bang for the buck. And they LOVED the Vauxhall VXR8, which was basically a Holden Monaro, and that was basically a Pontiac G8. This is just a more sporty version of that. It'll start off with all the things he hates about it, interior, blind spots etc etc, but he'll do a 180 surprise in the middle and end up loving it.
OOO!!! Thanks!!!

I love that show because it's not only about cars - it's about fun. Sure - they hate about everything American, but they poke fun at us about as much as they do themselves; that's fine by me. What I wouldn't give for several laps around their track

Haha reading what you guys will speculate that Jeremy will say is almost like watching the show! Quite entertaining. I do look forward to the review regardless good or bad. Jeremy recently reviewed the vette against the r8 I believe and although the vette wasn't as "good" he mentions it was more fun to drive which is why you should get it.

+1 Considering it was a whole second faster than the R8, it should've been better. They're always dark on the "quality" and "feel" of the car, if you will. I guess it's hard to argue, but there's almost no rivalling the Germans for those things though. Personally, I think GM put the money where it should've gone, and that's performance and speed.

JMVHO.
