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

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

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.:wink: Nice video though and thanks for sharing. :thumbsup:

true, 4 wheels are better than 2 but most Cars don't have the power to weight ratio to get to the next corner faster :wink:

This would be pretty cool news for anyone that's never seen Top Gear. But I'm sure whatever we get, it will suck in comparison.

Maybe the Brits will loan the American version of the Stig to this show. Ya know the obese guy they use when testing in the States. :lol:

Ha the moroso stig.

I'll stick with BBC America. Maybe with leno it would be okay, but it would be hard to match the original.

I loved how in the visit to the U.S. they were in some of the worst Miami areas and had NO problems, but almost got killed in Alabama for having stupid things written on the cars.

Bubba and the boys chasing them to learn 'em how to act in a "small hick town." as stated by the classy lady telling them to leave the gas station.

yea an american version would be lame. leno would be a great host, but compared to clarkson, the show isnt gonna be great. and this whole "american cars cant go round corners", i dont know where that came from. everybody knows they turn left like no body's business.

+1 on Leno. He has a good personality.

And I am sure that I'll give it an episode or two before I stop....
