    Anyone a little bored by last night's episode?

    The super limo thing was cool, but I'm so sick of the Ferrari/Lambo/Aston/Porsche tour of some European county thing. It's seems there's one every season and the cars are always similar.

    If they did it in more odd ball cars I'd be fun, but it's always Ferrari/Lambo/Aston/Porsche, Ferrari/Lambo/Aston/Porsche, Ferrari/Lambo/Aston/Porsche <yawn>

    Yeah ... it was missing something. I was slightly disappointed ... but the People's Palace was badass ;)

    I loved watching it in 1080. More reviews will come with the season... notably the ZR1 :)

    I thought it was cool. But yeah the ones where they just drive around can be a little boring.

    Bana was good, the sedans were a little boring. . . average show, but I think it will pick up.


    What the heck happened to the Gallardo? Did some guy actually hit it or was that staged too?

    Pretty average episode, but nice nevertheless. I agree that the usual supercar tour gets a bit boring, let's see what they come up with in the following episodes. At least they didn't waste 10 minutes on spoiling the whole series with a trailer, I hated that.


    I can't really understand the fuzz about the word "Doppelkupplungsgetriebe" :D It's very easy to decipher:

    Doppel - Kupplungs - Getriebe
    Double - Clutch - Gearbox

    The confusion didn't look staged, especially considering how the locals looked.

    How can you be bored by Ferrari/Lambo/Aston travelling in Europe and in some very unusual places ????

    I couldn't disagree more. It's an entertainment programme, so expect to see the big names there. They devote more time to oddball cars than any other show I can think of. One season they devoted the major feature to the Renault Avantime FFS!

    Because they do it once a season. I'd get bored of Shakira too... eventually.
