Crap, I watched the whole thing in anticipation of the Apache blowing the Lotus up (literally).

The Apache is a damn good looking helicopter.

But they just love to bash everything American.


But they're limeys. who cares what they think.

That had me laughing like a buffoon. Oh how that show entertains me! It's almost enough to convince me to get cable. Fortunately, I have the internet and you guys to help me get my fix.

Sweet.

I love the. Now if he were far away I would have no chance. So we have instructed them to stay inside the track.

In other words, we know this is BS, but it is fun BS.

And what missle lock is needed. I think the remote gun is quite enough for the Lotus. And all the pilot has to do is look at it.

The maneuverability test between a Porsche Boxster and Merc SLK was decided by giving Clarkson a TES (MILES) harness, and having him drive through an urban ops training village while getting shot at by a group of infantrymen. The car in which he completed the course with the fewest hits registered was deemed the winner.

They get a lot of help from the MOD. The Jaguar S-Type R was delivered by C-130 landing on a beach in the Monaro/300C/Jag face-off, for example.

The show also does public service segments, such as 'what sort of wig is best when driving a convertible', or perhaps this one, if you live near an airport.

This video is completely false.

Everyone knows that Nicolas Cage and Tommy Lee Jones are the best Apache pilots in the world.

Ok you get a little car with a high HP engine without frills. Is this not an old Idea brought back? Carroll Shelby did this in the 60's with the AC cobra.
And no we can't make one like it because the Gov. says we have to have all the safety crap. Spend $60,000 get a gov. legal 600hp ZO6 'Vette . I has all the goodies, massive HP, speed you can't use, and will get you laid quick.
