Lets start with this weeks "American" episode although last weeks ZR1 vs 458 italia was one of my favorite of the American Top Gear.



The airboat vs the offroad truck was pretty awesome. Especially since the airboat took some shortcuts across land to make it close.



The battle of the Dually's was ok but I wish they all would have hooked to the same thing to try to pull. If you didnt see it.....the chevy pulled out two telephone poles, the ford pulled a train and 1 car, and the dodge pulled down a house. Chevy won the drag race, Ford won the burnout competition, chevy/dodge tied in the hill climb.

Just finished watching the new episode. I agree, I wish they would have tried pulling the same objects to see what the true outcome would be. I would love to give that offroad vehicle a run as well. I love this show!

Yea the first couple shows of the american version had me kinda worried but they are getting better and better.



Did they say what that offroad vehicle costs?

I'm telling you the American Top Gear that they raced the EVO against downhill skiers on the ski slope was amazing! It sold the EVO to me.

$60K for the off roader! I agree with dlinsbeck, the show with the EVO was amazing. Just seeing that car thrashing down a ski slope was pretty bad ass!

You have got to see that one. I was shocked. They have had a few others that were pretty good. The Viper and the Apache chopper was a pretty good one too.

Top Gear is the best show on TV. I've been watching the original version for years, but i like the American version better because.....it's "Made in America" and they showcase cars you can buy on this side of the pond, unlike the BBC original version.

I just finished watching it. That was a good one. I love the way they got across that road without touching it. lol I cant believe they got the bronco running after it was on its side and dragged like that.
