Nice review!! Top gear is in every way better that fith gear. But yeah those top gear guys are a little bit anti american cars. Speacially Clarkson the old guy. He even makes fun of some old american cars in a very old topgear episode. Hammond does like muscle cars, he owns a Mustang and also tested the new mustang. and he likes it excepts the rear suspension. And he chooses the camaro too. That Jeremy Clarkson guy he basically hates almost everything besides british cars (Jaguar, Aston Martin). He also trashes french cars. German cars actually escape his hate. I love the Camaro and i'm waiting for its european release, coz i want one!!!

The term "Yank tank" is also used in Australian, Canadian, and British slang to describe these cars, but more generally to describe any American car considered to be large and unwieldy - including both classics (such as Cadillacs) and modern SUVs. The term entered the general vocabulary in Britain during the Second World War and especially the decade afterwards, when some American servicemen stationed in Britain imported cars from the USA. This happened at a time when American cars reached their largest sizes and most extravagant styling, leading to the term 'Yank Tank' in relation to these cars' bulk and unwieldy size on typically narrow and winding British roads. This difference was especially great because British cars of the 'Austerity Years' in the late 1940s and early 1950s were generally small, low-powered, with low equipment levels and constrained styling in comparison.

At least this was a pretty thorough car review. Unlike Topgears... bring out the AMG, cock blocking the Camaro (sorry for the language) =p

=D Two thumbs up!

I love this review so much better than top gear top gear was an unfair comparative and if you ask me they did somewhat of a biased review. This review was honest unbiased and it was centered aroudn the camaro and the camaro only and I like the fact that he had a perma-grin on for the entire review

This video shows some key aspects of how to drive the beast on a track...not quite an F1 or go kart but pretty tight nevertheless and its a Chevy!!

The thing I cant wait for the most is the alpha platform swap, the car will lose a good chunk of weight plus 2012 interior redo with premium materials, then no1 will be able to say anything negative about it at all.
