The official Top Gear thread

Anybody watching the new season? I liked the first episode, it had a good comparison between the v8 Vantage and the new Jaguar xkr. They also showed the crash Hammond was in :shock: .

And don't think it's necessarily wrong or immoral to do that. They're actually kind of proud that their show is in such high demand that people in other countries will download it.

That was the last episode ... new one should be tomorrow! I loved when James got to top speed and said that the tires would only last 15 mins at that speed, but it didn't matter because the gas would run out in 12! I LOL'd.

Re: The official Top Gear thread

I LOVE this show, it's so hilarious. i don't take a lot of seriously as they're very biased against some brands, or countries in general, but it makes a VERY good show to watch.

That, and i'm buying a Simpson Diamondback in white as soon as I can. Hopefully for a few autox runs this year.

I like how he compared the ariel atom to a full size 06 dodge ram. NOT

Its a truck, pulls many of tons. Not ment to be raced on a track, not to mention being compared to a supercharged 1,000lb car

Re: The official Top Gear thread

The Ariel Atom 2 show made me jealous, especially that those can be driven around the UK.
