I love Top Gear. But I just hate how they are inconsistent with their reviews, they lie, they rig events and races, they do whatever it takes to make sure their favorite car comes out on top. Hammond is a b!tch, Clarkson is good, James is awesome. James has class.

Yeah, well they do give good reviews. I just wish they'd quit driving with their POM's!

they lie and make fun of american cars like crazy. I love how they use a chassis dyno to judge crank horsepower numbers and don't account for drivetrain powerloss....447rwhp=almost 500chp? no 447rwhp= about 515hp. and i love how he said they cost 35,000 lbs. That's over $70,000. Another bs review from top gear. Even in the z06 review, they praise it for its strongpoints throughout the whole episode, then at the end they say, "but this car is almost undrivable on the street, it is so rattly and uncomfortable, i would never buy one." Well i've been in 2 ls7 z06's and they were more comfortable than i expected. They never take price into account, they compare every aspect of the car (including interior and comfort) to a car that performs similarly in europe, and in almost every class, an american car dominates performance for the price range.

i agree with clay, they make it seem like ford says that it has 500 to the wheels. anybody who knows anything about cars knows that they rated horsepower that they say is meant for Hp at the crank not the wheels. what an idiot, i guess brits just hate americans.
