Anyone watching Top Gear?

They're comparing the Camaro, Mustang and Challenger. And busting on the Camaro Big-time.

Dose that mean the camaro is out of touch for you since the BMW is on the way?

No it was the US version. If Tanner would've just kept going instead of turning back on pit road, he'd have won that challenge.

Does anyone else think is was planned so each model car/driver won a segment? Come on now!!!

The best part was the Camaro winning the drag race event!!!

I'm pretty sure that it was intentional judging by the dialogue.
They didn't WANT the Camaro to win.

I also think it was intentional that they chose the automatic tranny for the Camaro and manuals in the other two. Thinking that would give the Mustang and Challenger an edge.

It all appeared to be a little rigged. Especially the automatic in the camaro. But it was kick ass watching him drift the boss 302 around the corners.
