    Allante' on Top Gear on History Channel - 8/28/12

    Just saw an ad for the "Top Gear" episode for next week. It looks like they are putting the Allante' to the test. The episode airs next Tuesday, Aug 28 at 9:00 pm Eastern on The History Channel.

    I saw that as well.Should be interesting (and probably sad as the allante will surely get trashed by the end of the show)

    It is 93 Northstar powered. It is a goofy storyline about three cars that were sales failures in their day.
    At the end of their antics Rut Tanner and Adam have to put together an ad campaign for each car and then sell the car Rut has the Subaru, Tanner has the Merkur and Adam has the Allante. I think the Allante will have the highest resale value of the group! It will probably be more drama then factual information!

    It was about what I expected. Although they said that the Allante' was producedfor 4 years and we all know that it was 7. The show was a little silly, but it was nice to see an Allante' on TV without renting "Tango & Cash", "Cadillac Man" or that old Charlie Sheen movie.

    yeah quite lame really, I just can't seem to warm up to the US version. At least the Brits would run the cars thru there paces and do a little comparison and competition....this was just lame :-(
