Makes me even more nervous about their review now, as mine is IOM as well!

I'm a Brit, living in Dallas, watched Top Gear back home since I was a kid! Love that show. I hope they do me proud both as a Brit and a Camaro owner and reinforce the fact that simply, the new Camaro is ace!

And with Hammy driving, there's a good chance that could happen.

I love all of the hate that Top Gear gets because they like to rag on American cars.

Guess what guys, American cars were absolute shit for a long time and the Brits love to remind everyone of that. The Top Gear guys don't hate on all things US though. They LOVED the ZR1. Clarkson even named it his car of the year last year. Clarkson owns a Ford GT. I believe Hammond owns a classic Mustang and Charger.

Top Gear is THE best car show on TV right now and probably ever. That's a fact. So what if they give American cars shit? I don't care because where else do you get to see a show where they put all of the worlds super exotics through the ringer? You don't.

They like the LS3 when they reviewed it in other cars from Australia.

I loved his reactions to those cars! That's why I think Camaro at least has a chance with Hammond. Yeah - Clarkson and May will rip it after, but it's all in good fun. They rip on almost all the cars - though American cars get it a little more, lol.

And they are quick to point out how crappy the British cars are too, in fact they did a whole episode on how crappy their manufacturing techniques were.

It's all a shtick, they are entertainers not journalists.

Which is why the show is so popular. It's not the usual dry review of a vehicle showing storage space and mpg. Their reviews hit on the points that people who are interested in the car, are going to be interested in.

Just watch past episodes with american cars. The viper review Clarkson did, he stated many times the car was complete crap build wise but he had tons of fun in it. He loved it. The ZR1 too, he's quick to point out the plastic bits and what not, but he'd buy it over an R8 which is built way better.

Whichever way this Camaro review goes it will be entertaining and I'm sure there will be a ton of tire smoke.

That's what I want to see - a ton of smoke. You know it can deliver too.

The article I read by him said that the GT didn't actually break down, but the security system kept malfunctioning by going off in the middle of the night, and also by thinking he was stealing his own car when he was driving it.

Still, he was sad to see her go. I would be, too.

Guys remember when our cars sell over there they usually double the price and sell it in British pounds or Euros which happen to be way more. Anyhow I would not be surprised to see the camaro SS MSRP 50-60 thousand quid. So the argument for price for what you get compared to the Mercedes that has 100 hp and a higher quality of finish might not me so great. Anyhow I'm sure their will be plenty of buyers to snatch them up for large profits for GM.
