American Top Gear

NBC up to their usual low standards. Any bets how many episodes it'll run? And who will be "The Stig"?

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.

I would think it needs to be on speed or lower channel, but like the Idea of a Top Gear in the US.....those Brits liked to cheat when they raced bikes against Cars and American vs. Foreign cars....so lets get the other side of the story from an American point of view.

...the 0-60 is still slower than a 1986VRF Interceptor with 85hp to the rear wheel so why state that stat?

The over 200mph was impressive but looks like it still will get spanked some American cars in the Corners and most bikes in a few seconds of high speed runs. Nice video though and thanks for sharing.
