The Grand Tour

First episode is out on the interwebs and overall it is very good indeed........ Top Gear may as well be put into mothballs.

Wha'?
You want us to pay money to watch guys pretend they know how to drive some very expensive and fast cars they talked some fools into loaning them?
Oops, gotta' go.
The cartoon shows are about to start.

Episode two on the whole left me cold ..... when they actually talked about cars it was great but the rest is a mystery to me..... I'm guessing they are trying to win over the American market with 'guns' and the younger market with the other nonsense...... [smilie=popcorn.gif]

The Aston Martin was epic and the Audi S8 would beat most cars in the 1/4 mile, 0-60 in 2.8 is epic !!! the AM was 2.9 !!!

I 'think' that was sarcasm but can't tell... just in case it wasn't... it's been done before.
Tarpon... everything else is just bait.

Yeah I could have done without the special ops section of episode 2.
That Aston was amazing... nicest sounding engine I've ever heard.

That means you've never been trackside to hear a 3 liter Ferrari V-12 go screaming by.
Now, that's genuine music.

Nope that Aston sounds like victory ............. Ferrari's are for premiership soccer players, slum lords, drug dealers and bankers...... all of which deserve to be put down [smilie=011.gif]

Haven't seen it yet, but they have been doing gun episodes for what seems like for ever. Tanks,guns, fighter jets. It's a common thing. Men love guns it's only natural.

Gotta say the show is getting old fast.

The episode with them in the desert playing special ops was cringe worthy and not at all funny
