USA Muscle Car Road Trip Part 2 – Mountain pass – Top Gear – BBC

Published by Darron Toy on

look at that road look at it you could just become mesmerized by the straightness of it after a while though we became bored by the straightness of it there are 213 stitches on my door panel if you add up all the numbers on my dashboard it comes to one thousand two hundred and forty-seven my battery is producing twelve point nine volts to liven things up I decided to stop for some elevenses Corvette stop what are you doing I've just laid these black lines on the road and I bet you you can't do longer ones I bet you a million pounds I can't this is what this cars for what are we doing well you're keeping a lookout while he tries to lay longer black lines down the road than I've managed a wife somebody sees us I don't think they will Hey yes here we go hopeless this may be harder than I thought it's automatic right back here out the way let's see if may you can do it listen let me go well have you turned the traction control yes have you ever done that in your life no I think it's very game behind that joy I'm gonna do lots of rags steering this stroke Oh Oh you are such an imbecile what do you call that I over corrected how well does that bode for Bonneville you can't drive in a straight line traction control on we tried going back to being factual Kal's but soon we ran out of facts Oh God look it's clouding over after what felt like six years we came across some civilization we're Richard said he fancied an all-day breakfast in the good old boys American diner and that gave me an opportunity to think of another thing we weren't supposed to do to do all our cars have keyless go so providing you have the key somewhere about your person somewhere near the car the engine will start I think however that dodges are a bit crude so Hammonds sitting there okay he's got a keyless pocket you know he's left it open so I don't have his key okay ready I would a reap archit not sure how far I can actually drive before the engine realizes there's no key but I think if I pushed I don't know about here sorry with that factual test completed we enjoyed a light breakfast and chatted about our road trip how much you looking forward to Bonneville more than that look forward to anything in pretty much forever it's not answer together since I was a small boy I'm good spike or better get to it but you won't it was time to hit the road onwards what my car was there and over there did you leave it there no of course I didn't leave it in the round I've got the what can't get it if I were you how'd it oh god I'm sorry sorry that's weird back on the i50 i rechecked my stitching in 1920-21 and james carried on boning a proper american luxury car this is some sort of ridiculous American at the end of the i50 there's another very straight road to Bonneville but Richard and I decided it would be more fun to go there on the longer twisting road through the mountains so we'll go that way why can't we just go there look James Cadillac has never heard of Germany okay but despite that this car has been round the Nurburgring in less than eight minutes it's supposed to be the fastest four-door saloon ever on those twisty roads you'll love it then you know what on this astonishing road he did all of a sudden that stuff about limited slip differentials and magnetic suspension all makes complete sense oh yes it's so planted this is the best American car I've ever driven by a distance as great as that road the lighter grippier Corvettes however even better man this is great how as dos are as this one is most of the time please this exciting what the road gets twisty now is that possible it's also such a joy to have all this power and all this handling and the proper manual gearboxes stupid flappy paddles simple traction control fall off are you listening Ferrari well done from Kentucky this is a masterpiece here in the mountains James and I have discovered we were really driving point and squirt muscle cars we were in full-on sports cars Richard on the other hand was driving a traditional muscle car and he wasn't having like such a good time challenges not really very good at this sort of thing the steering there is none actually it's quite now meanwhile back at the front something amazing was happening this is just a true oh my God look at this I just got overtaken know maybe he was boiling the viewer head slightly now that won't do got into him drunky but Jezza is really shifting now he's catching slow this was way too exciting for the u.s. government and anyway we had to reach Bonneville before nightfall so we rejoin the main highway and went for it sadly though this was also too much for the US government I just wanted to make sure that you guys are doing the documentary though it is a documentary it's not a bucket fooling around show serious jeromy's sincerity wasn't convincing and his hand gestures didn't help me everything you said everything you said maybe it was at one point I wanted to just look did I tell him real David factual documentary there's gonna be no issues with the visa really alarming is you've actually been quite entertaining oh god I wasn't entertaining I've no I found you entertained yeah you were always being factually building after that we drove on in a factual excited that soon we would be in Bonneville the mecca of speed and it really is a pilgrimage when perpetual heads that is hallowed ground you you

America got beautiful roads but due to speed traps those roads are put to waste.

t0ny1189 · May 15, 2019 at 5:16 pm

I wish the Hellcat was out when this was made so Richard could of had that instead.. would of been a lot more fair if he had a forced Induction like the other two..

Daniel D · May 15, 2019 at 5:16 pm

Bringing the Cadillac is the same equivalent of bringing your grandfather to a gun fight 😂😂

Europeans are so enthralled with road racing and I find most of it boring… the question is how fast can it go from point A to point B and America is the boss!

loyal American · May 15, 2019 at 5:16 pm

Anything Europe can make we can make better and definitely when it comes to horsepower and torque!… America is the boss and there's no place like it on the Earth!!

GMF62 V8 · May 15, 2019 at 5:16 pm

I would max out my car on a straight road like that

Anthony Fiorella · May 15, 2019 at 5:16 pm

I actually own a zr1 of that era….. there's actually 214 stitches

Trucker Nation · May 15, 2019 at 5:16 pm

There is no reason to enforce traffic on a road where there’s three cars in a 50 mile radius.

SearlsTech · May 15, 2019 at 5:16 pm

GM products SUCK!

JonatasAdoM · May 15, 2019 at 5:16 pm

Feels good see them on the right of the road.
