Thats a sweet car.

Though it has an LS2, so we won't see that here, at least not with an LS2.

He says 440hp. His math isn't good lol.

Vauxhall's ratings are 417PS/550Nm... which translates to 411hp/406tq... a little higher than the LS2 was rated here.

They will bash on it some, just for it being American.

When asked if he would own one over a BMW M6( which got its ass kicked) he said no. Figures. Reason from Clarkson's mouth..... the looks (one of the best things about the car). He can still bite me.

He couldn just let it up after a very nice review by him. I would be a happy camper if the camaro came in the color though. But after watching video of that car make me want a G8 at times.

GM is slapping that K-pow metallic (purplish blue colorchangingsortaish) on more and more cars each year now(extra cost option). I believe you can even get it on the 08 cobalt.

And it barely lost to a 911 Turbo on the track, which was wet.
