I want to like the US Top Gear show - it is pretty painful to watch for me.
At least they have a GT on it

I finally watched the UK Top Gear video about the GT. That guy can drive the crap out of those cars.

+10000 x 5 = 50000 + Swedish import tax x 25% x toll fees 4.5% = Not fun to live here and have a american supercar.

Anyway, watch the Australian Top Gear, they have the best GT test out there. They drive OzGT's black beast and she spits flames like a japanese dragon !!!

Clarkson is a great host, very funny and provides some epic comments...
But the truth is that he couldn't even drive a greasy stick up a dogs ass - all the driving on the limit (and beyond) is not done by him. Funny how you never see him in he car when the going gets tuff..:skep

I'm sure he's become a good driver, but what you've said jives with what I was told by someone present at a filming session. Said he had a double driving the wild track stuff, complete with curly wig.

Maybe you're talking about The Stig? He's the only driver. The rest need lots of runoff.

Although Clarkson's GTX1 race track drive isn't strictly a test, I do really like that clip as well.

Oh cost of American cars overseas, don't get me started lol. Throw in conversion cost to RHD and we could be getting close to what it costs to put a GT on the road here in Australia. We have GST and customs duty+Luxury Car Tax(33% of cost of car above $65k in value)+Conversion cost $40k+on road stamp duty. A Ford Raptor 2012/13 costs between $135k-$170k on road here depending on who you go to! I've got one on order currently. My old 2003 SVT Cobra vert cost $125K on the road brand new...

That's it. Clarkson is an actor. He has a knack. Very entertaining, great delivery. Plus I think might be able to drive pretty well.
