Today will be the Top Gear review done by Matt LeBlanc. 8 PM GMT.

I tried out both of these links to get a live broadcast of BBC 2.

You'll need to be in the UK to watch it. Or use a VPN.

Wonder what they'll have to say... :willy :wink

Yeah, sounded great. It was cool to see the wing aero-brake. 0-60 3 seconds. Can't wait!

I heard Marino said it had the best steering of any vehicle he'd ever driven, and he's drive the last "big three."

“In fact I think it’s the best looking American car this century.

Hell, it might be the best looking car this century.”

“The acceleration is enormous.”

“There’s always power. Always.”

“This thing is…sticky.”

“Oh shit, that’s quick.”

“The GT feels like it’s been crafted by specialists who knew exactly what they wanted. And got it.”

“It’s got a great feel, turns in really sharp.”

“Oh my God the balance is epic.”

“Wow.”

“It’s just got such a balanced feel, so well sorted.”

“This car is so special.”

“This car looks absolutely stunning in that film, but I can’t believe I’m saying this, it looks even better in the studio.”

Is this hydraulic steering something new Ford has been working on that's going to make it's way down to the Mustang and so on?

Sorry but when I see LeBlanc on TG I think I accidentally turned on Friends. Cant wait for Chris Harris to drive the NFGT and give us his review. The car looks terrific!
