Top Gear USA Season 1 Episode 7

Well we are nearing the end of Top Gear USA Season 1 and although it might have started off slow the show is getting better and better every episode. I must say I enjoyed the Florida Challenge in the previous episode and the bikers vs crz  and car dealership challenge in episode 7. However, Top Gear USA should start differentiating themselves by not copying Top Gear UK challenges such as the bikers vs cars and car vs skiers and they need to get rid of the awkward intro comparing themselves to different shows … we get it.

While Muslims found issue with hosts Clarkson, Hamster and May wearing the traditional clothing of  a Muslim women, the Christians are in rage about baby Stig filling in for Jesus.

The Stig is close enough to Jesus.

Top Gear America Episode 2

Well this show was consisted of Top Gear Uk’s Skiers challenge copy, Astons driving in a dessert, Dominic Monahan beats a 80 year olds track record and a blind man is better than Adam and Rutledge at drifting. At the end it is ironic when the dog pisses all over the top gear carpet.

Cars and Coffee Orange County

Irvine’s Cars and Coffee boasted an impressive array of luxury vehicles, sports cars, super cars, and even a few classics. Vehicles ranged from 1955 Austin Healeys to 2011 Porsches.  The meet commanded attention with cars such as a 2011 Guard Red Porsche Turbo S and a Matte Green 10 cylinder Lamborghini Gallardo.  The Turbo S which reaches 60 mph in 3.1 seconds cost the owner a mere$183,175 while the Gallardo, which is currently for sale, is listed at a steeper $286,835. If Porsches and Lamborghinis  were not enough, Cars and Coffee also presented the 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia. The 562 horsepower V8 two seater gained the most recognition among the 75+ other cars in attendance. Considering most vehicles redline under 7000 rpm, the Italia’s maximum engine power of 9000 rpm left many viewers in awe. The supercar left fanatics marveling and amateurs wondering, “What is THAT?” Irvine’s Cars and Coffee also emphasized  advances in technology and design creating a didactic experience through material comparison. The contrast between classic cars like the 1956 Mercedes Benz 220 S Ponton Cabriolet, whose class remained evident but Becker Mexico Radio (with station scanning) diminished its technical shine, and the BMW M5 equipped with navigation, heated seats, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, and dynamic stability control was inevitable. Cars and Coffee covered multiple generations of cars and coupes and more importantly brought those interested, together. Most attendees knew their cars, and knew them well creating the perfect setting for the pros to discuss, and amateurs to discover the indubitable thrill of automobiles.

Shaston-Lumma Design 760Li

Lumma Design and Shaston have come together to do something that is really hard to do.  Make the BMW 760Li look even better.  This was achieved by an exterior package containing a new front that integrates grid inserts, fog lights, and LED daytime running lights. A new lower suspension setting drops the luxury sedan while the new wheel arch extensions, special set of deep door-sills, and the new rear diffuser add to the overall aggressive look of the vehicle. The whole appearance of the BMW 760Li is completed by genuine carbon/Kevlar covering the exterior mirror caps, kidney front grille frame, all door handle covers, the boot lid trim, the four-piece pillar trim set for doors, and the mud guards.  Finally to top it all of they have added a new set of 20 inch rims.  No performance specs have been released yet, but most people should be fine with the stock TwinPower Turbo v12 delivering a whopping 544 HP 553 lb-ft of torque

Wald International 7-Series Sports Line Black Bison Edition

Wald International, a Japanese auto tuner, has come up with quite an impressive set up for the new 7 series.  Named The “Black Bison” edition they have fitted Wald Renovatio R13 22-inch rims, a body kit  which consists of a new front bumper with LED daytime running lights, side skirts, a new rear bumper with LED brake lights, and roof and trunk spoilers.  Finally a finishing touch that they added is the new aggressive exhaust system fitted with quad oval pipes emitting from the rear skirt in a “muffler cutter” design – meaning the double pipes overlap.  While no price has been set for this package yet, the looks alone are well worth it.

Top Gear USA

In my opinion they are good enough for the in between parts when the real top gear is on break. Honestly it would be a much better show if they did not speak.
