@Nitronium - Hook the Lambo to a dolly behind a tow truck with the dog at the wheel. Pre-record and add the sound layer of the Lambo to the in-car video footage. We don't think they showed the dog shifting gears, did they?

I guess that's the most likely way.

Also, they might have set the Lambo into cruise control down the straight stretch, strapped the pooch in and TADA!

What's shameful is that the dog dutifully wears it's seatbelt while 90% of India see's it as a blasted inconvenience.

[12x02] :

Quote:
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May travel to the US to take three new generation muscle cars on an epic road trip from San Francisco to the heart of Utah. And after the excitement of their last American road trip, this time they do their best to avoid letting a mob of angry locals pelt them with rocks. Meanwhile, back in the UK Jeremy tests the feisty new Fiat 500 Abarth and pop idol Will Young is the Star In A Reasonably Priced Car.
Can't wait for that one ! Their last American trip [9x03] together in the beaters was fantastic!

At least this time they aren't traversing the country with rickety junk. Three pure blooded muscle cars

The Camaro, the CTS (it isn't muscle but looks rather nice), and another i dint manage to identify clearly

All that i know is that it's going to incredibly stupid and hilarious

But then i dont know much and may have not been what it looked like.
Infact that is the accident which was reported where he ruptured his left knee cap and had some other bruise too.

And not to forget the Gear stick up his back side

I thought they were the CTS, ZR1 and the Challenger, though I havent seen the trailer very clearly.
They also race flat out (I think) on salt plains!

All you need to do is search for Top Gear bloopers in any of the major torrent providers.

Yes, you are right. It is the CTS-V, ZR1 and the Challenger.

You didn't manage to identify the main event, the fire-breathing Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.
The ZR1, one of the hottest bargain performers in the world right now,
The Caddilac CTS-V, the fastest 4 door sedan to lap the Nurburgring, and
The Dodge Challenger, possibly one of the best looking american muscle cars out there.

It's gonna be epic! Although my prediction is, all 3 will fall in love with their cars, then dismiss it over something trival like "The interior is rubbish"

Getting it as I type. I'm blessed with the most phenomenal internet connection, so I should be getting the whole episode in about 30 or 40 minutes....
Can't wait to watch it later today!!


Man... sooner or later I'm going to need a whole separate external hard drive for all the episodes... I've got every episode right from Season 1.

Top Gear Season 12: Episode 1:

Jeremy Clarksons truckers joke has not been taken well by many in Britain, many have asked for his resignation, but a smart little company has made a online game on this episode : the games name is 'Run Clarkson Run'
