Over the weekend I saw previews for tonights episode of Top Gear which showed the testing of the 09 V, Vette and I think Charger. This is supposed to be the new season opener even though it's been the new season for awhile overseas. i'm not 100% since they do mix it up all the time on that show but it might be worth tuning in.

It's only the new season here in the states. It was already on in the UK. The season is already over there. It's worth a watch though if you haven't seen it. It is the V, ZR1 and a Charger on a trip to Bonneville.

Yeah thats an old episode. Saw it a long time ago on youtube. i dont like how Richard Hammond acts like he hates the V and when he put it in the ditch I was like :eek: ........then again he always dogs the american cars

He didnt have anything bad to say about the car, thats the thing. he just keeps saying how he cant stand driving it bc of how rediculous the idea of a caddy super car is......get over it Dick! (Richard)

I agree (for the most part), but if you remember, one of the last things the says is "this is the best american car I've ever driven!" I have to agree with that one!

That was May. If any of them are going to like American cars, it's Hammond...

I wish they would retest the V in the dry on the test track. (different episode). 1:33 in standing water isn't bad at all.

That wasn't Richard Hammond. That was James May.

That wasn't the most exciting Top Gear segment...seeing Jeremy get pulled over in Reno for acting like a child was funny tho!

Some nice drifting in the ZR1, I wonder who was driving? Not saying it couldn't be Clarkson, I'm sure he's capeable. Just curious.

Since this topic is old news...
Has anyone been following the 'Stig' story, about who he really is? Theres good reason to think hes a British racer named Ben Collins. But since that info has been somewhat leaked, Top Gear themselves have speculated that its actually Graham Hill, haha. And then they released a video of Black Stig runnning through the water like he was doing a pylon test in a car. And Top Gear said it was Barack Obama. :)
Now, Fifth Gear, the crappy bbritish car show has introdced a new character called the Stag.
