I agree, but you can slap a Holden front end on your G8 and have a very well built and very nice looking ride for a decent price. I don't mind the front on my G8, but I agree the Holden HSV front clip is A LOT nicer.

I am genuinely upset. I really liked Saabs.

In theory they might still be purchased, GM extended the deadline to the 7th.

Also, we knew this episode was going to be kinda low on budget:

""Basically instead of trimming back a little bit on every show losing a helicopter here or a truck crash there we'll endeavour to make 13 of our 14 shows as per the usual [Hollywood producer/director] Jerry Bruckheimer standard, and then the last one, when we only have a tenner left, will be utter, utter shite."

that's counting all the british taxes and the importing costs. for cars available in both markets, the price usually balances out to ~1GBP = 1USD

The lexus video was cool. It IS rather pointless, i think we all said that in the LF-A thread

I damn near DIED during the James May video and the interview was a C average. A lot of the time I'll flat out skip them but Three String Joe or whataver was mildly entertaining.

Again what the fuck... were they thinking... with May's segment. ZZzzzzzzzzzz.... I'm getting sleepy just thinking about it.






Ps. Would it look sexier in glasses

Well... how many seconds a dry vs a wet track is worth? it did really well on its lap...

i remember an episode where he said it was about 6 seconds but that doesn't make sense cause that would make it the fastest car. maybe that was for the star in a reasonably priced car segment or something.

I would bet its slightly faster than the GT-R (1.19.7) but slower than the Enzo (1.19.0)

no the z06 is. you have to factor in transmission replacements every 10,000 miles on the GTR.

Caterham Seven R500 Superlight is light years faster than a GT-R or Z06 and costs the same price which is why it was the car of the year last year on Top Gear. /thread

its just a shitload harder to live with but I still totally want one
