Well they could have compared the Camaro SS to the Mercedes C63 AMG which wipes the floor with the E63 AMG and a modded SS. You can buy a C63 for 60k.

Not so sure about that. My SL55 AMG outruns the C63 and between it and my SS is a drivers race.

LOL Hammond is going on about the sound that the AMG makes is "amazing". To me it sounds like the Rot Wieler dog from National Lampoons Christmas Vacation when its choking on the bone at the dinner table lol. OMG I just fell out of my chair laughing.

Not off the line it doesn't...... perhaps top end.

I watched this weekend the C63 stock running neck and neck with SL65 V12 0-60 times were 3.76 65 3.88 C63.

It what I expected out of Top Gear.. In fact it better then I was thinking it would be.

As far as the comments of It should have been a LS3... I think they were looking at auto to auto

And all the specs I have read on the LS3 vs L99 they are about the same so I don't get the comments like the LS3 would have done much better. I don't agree, the auto and the manual are only a 1/10 of second apart in the 1/4 mile so I don't think the LS3 would have made much diff. IMHO

On a track there would be a difference if the driver was worth his salt.

You're also forgetting however where an American car deserves credit its given, James may loves the CTS, and Clarkson loves his Ford GT

Good show, not necessarily a fair review but Hammy still would rather own the Camaro so that counts for something.... I think they were both autos...

And the suspension and transmission in the AMG are far better than the Camaro...

Not all that bad for the Camaro... All things Considered.

This is absolutely not a good car for murderers... there is nowhere near enough trunk space. I do remember Jeremy saying "who's head is that" so perhaps he realizes this and claims that murderers only cart the heads around but any good murderer knows, and I'm sure you're all good murderers in your Camaros, that we take the whole body, not just the head. Silly brits.

i knew this was going to piss me off. biased review as usual from top gear. for one, wet test track of course is going to hurt the time...two, L99 engine with 26 less HP...third, comparing it to a flubbing mercedes that is twice as expensive?!?!? absolutely absurd. i hope they did this on purpose so they do another episode and revisit the camaro and give it a review that it deserves.

i have been watching top gear for the longest time.. and this is just dissapointing.. they do such good shows.. and when it comes to doing our car, they waste it on a merc? really? these cars do not go hand in hand and i hate that they put it down comparing it a car that is twice the price in a different class.. BS. they shoulda did a mustang challenger camaro comparison it woulda been much more entertaining. gimme a break. im sure in the future though there will b another show where they have it again and jeremy will love it because of the script.. i just dont buy this show any more.. i am really upset with this. damnit.

He does understand. You guys have to realize that most of what he says is purely for entertainment purposes. That and the fact that he's British. Most Brits don't like the way American cars handle and the way they are built, especially Muscle Cars. Clarkson also hates on Porsches and BMW drivers, which is allright in my book.

I don't agree with most of what he says but I'm not going to bash him because he his highly entertaining. Had Clarkson reviewed the car, his comments would probably have been much worse.

+1

Most people don't know that the L99 makes more power under the curve then the LS3. People are so concerned with peak power.

Eh. Idk.

I think they used 'D' during the testing unfortunately. I'm not sure if you're familiar with the CTS-V. The auto tranny in the Camaro is the CTS-V auto tranny's little cousin. With that said the auto in the CTS-V outruns the manual to 60 mph (.3 sec), 100 mph (1 sec.), and around the Nurburgring!

We're not talking about a straight line test here. With the same driver, the M6 will be faster than the A6 around the Top Gear track. That's a fact. Put the Stig behind the wheel of an M6 SS and the time would be faster. It has nothing to do with engine and everything to do with transmission when racing on a road course.
