    Episode 2 of Season 12 will air November 9 and include the Challenger, CTS-V and the ZR1. It will show on BBC Two which may not be available in the US. I suspect youtube will have it by Nov 10.

    great point.

    Re: New CTS-V on next episode of Top Gear!!!

    just saw the episode

    James May was, at first, very UN-enthusiastic about the V. Kept rambling how it's not a proper Cadillac and such.

    After entering some twisties on the way to Salt Flats he starts to fall in love.

    The only downside to the whole episode was that they didn't really talk about it much.

    Yeah. I just watched also. Really ends up being very positive about ALL the cars. Probably the most positive TG review of some American made cars I have seen. Will be interesting to see them get them over there for the Stig though! Hopefully they make that happen this season.

    Great cars in this episode, but I do wish they were able to do some testing.

    Just saw the episode. Kinda sucks that Clarkson complained about the V1 in the last season - or was it before that. GM improved the V and he didnt even really do an in-depth on the car. I wish I knew they were going to be filming here in the bay area but oh well. what kind of RETARD is James may he crashed the car off the side of the road!! damn knucklehead.

    The V was definitely in the background compared to the ZR1 and Challenger. Hopefully they'll do a dedicated review of the V in the near future, including tests and a Stig test drive.

    I didn't think so. And I think May's disdain for the Cadillac was for entertain, er, I mean for factual purposes. Seriously, a lot of that is for entertainment and not too serious. Do you really think May was complaining about the car for hours, trying to win a 3 wheeler all night in Reno so he won't have to drive a Cadillac?

    When Clarkson likes something as much as the ZR1, he will dominate the conversation. So if there was a little more attention to the Vette, I understand that. But I thought the Caddy got more time than the Challenger. And I got a kick out of May and Clarkson going at in on that back Nevada road while Hammond was languishing in the Challenger...

    Don't get me wrong- I know that the whole bit with May and the Casino was a gag, but other than the part where Mays blows past Clarkson on the mountain road they just didn't talk about the CTS-V nearly as much as the other two.

    That's all I'm saying.
    Rest in Peace, J.D. (aka Dirt_Cheap_Fleetwood)
