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!
with a supercharged LSA and over 125 more hp...

Jeremy did this with the Corvette. He tested it here in Ca. and said he loved it, then recently tested it vs another car and said that he didn't like it very much anymore but he did say the Vette was a better choice of the 2 for the fun factor.
Jeremy said all of the bad things about the car and went out and bought one. He still owns the zr1.

This guy is always making fun of American cars and Americans, not sure why we watch his junk show or why we dont have a show that make fun of britons and their cars, their cars that are soooo perfect that ended up being owned by everyone except them. Ford had Rover, Aston and Jag now the Indians have them, TATA. lol

All things considered I think the camaro did pretty well here. Clearly a car with 125hp advantage is likely to win. It's time wasn't even that bad. If you watch the video and see the cars that were faster you'll see it did quite well. They pretty much all had more HP and the "truck" also drops a few pounds to help it in the speed department.

I thought that went fairly well. Seriously.
That 127 time was slow though. Lutz coulda done better.

I think a lot of are you are forgetting that he doesn't hate only american cars, and a lot of it is done for entertainment...you know...being on TV to entertain.


Though a lot of these posts are amusing.

Ditto.
Pretty good compliment, I'd say!



Oh... and the best line of the video: "I'd still take the Camaro... it has soul!" Which just goes to show you that... he gets it!!!!!

What a strange way to compare similar cars, which are not similar in price and features. I'm sorry, but I didn't get the jokes. I still adore the camaro more

So, they compared a Camaro to a Mercedes E63 AMG? I know when I go car shopping I always jump from the Chevy dealership straight to the 3-pointed star for some comparison shopping! WTF?! I have to say that I'm disappointed! I was hoping for something that made sense. And 127.9? Wow! I thought it would do better. Hammond didn't even say to many nice things about it.

I like taking two completely different cars and comparing them. I'm going to compare an Accord to a 2011 Shelby GT500 and take them around a road course and see who's better!

BTW, we all know which car looked waaaaaaaaaay better going down the track.

If I am not mistaken but 'AMG' is the tuning house for Mercedes. How can you compare an out of the box American Muscle Car (the only muscle Car you can have) with a tuned up 4-door saloon. I am British through and through, but I'd say you can keep your German Ubersaloon. I'll have the only true muscle car thank you very much, in orange with the black stripes. For a fairer comparison let's see a tuned up Camaro up against the Merc. My bet will be on the Camaro.

I agree, the review was disappointing and kind of retarded I'll admit. The whole thing was about that damn Merc. No Euro car exhaust note can compare to Muscle
