It's too prim and polished. Top Gear is funny because it's three over-the-hill idiots acting like kids with the biggest toybox in the world and doing stupid shit with cars because they can do stupid shit with cars. Punctuated with actual consumer advice occasionally and some fairly profound messages every once in a while Top Gear is the best motoring show on the market.
And American Top Gear is good too I guess... I mean... I'd never choose it over real Top Gear but... yeah, not gonna lie, it's abysmal.

Whilst we do have a place in our hearts for pomp and circumstance (Hell... our unofficial national anthem is literally called 'Pomp and Circumstance'... give it a listen, it's one of Elgar's best. You'll recognise it from about the 1:40 mark inwards)
Ahem... so yeah, whilst we have a place for all that our comedy is -never- polished. When we laugh we laugh at people falling over and making an arse of themselves. We laugh about people dying and generally glory in the misery of others... 'cause we're an old-ass country with a superiority complex who started the industrial revolution... we're owed that much.
The reason Top Gear is better than Top Gear US is simple... Top Gear has a UK sense of humour and Top Gear US has... I don't want to say a US sense of humour since the US is far too big for any one taste to be prevalent but it's certainly not got anywhere near the same level of charm.
Who knows, give them time and maybe those US boys can grow up to be men wishing they were boys and start doing the kind of juvinile shit that makes the original Top Gear as funny as it is but at the moment I don't believe they could pull it off naturally. It feels far too much like a motoring show at the moment whereas original Top Gear's not a motoring show at all, rather it's an entertainment show about big, expensive toys... mostly cars but we've had jet-propelled roller skates, harrier jump-jets, hellicopters, aircraft carriers... it's just 'Three old bastards do stupid shit with stuff you can't afford for 60 minutes'.
Honestly I don't get how the US... the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA... didn't think to find three old bastards who like doing stupid stuff and living out adolescent power fantasies? The US is pretty much synonymous with over-indulgent recreational guns by this point. With brash power and mindless self-indulgence. In my eyes that's a recipe for disaster of the BEST kind! So I've got my hopes up but as it stands the US version's not for me

Im very familar with Pomp and Circumstance considering it was played at my University graduation ;P
But I'm still a muscle car enthusiast and can really appreciate the concepts talked about in American Top Gear. But I was born and raised in a family that drag races so I've been around muscle cars all my life. I currently own a 2000 Camaro Z28 (Pictured - me at the race track )
Definitely get the sense of humor thing. I love British comedy. I also spent 4 months in Blackpool for the foreign studies program at my University. Loved it. Americans can have a really good sense of humor too but there's always a self-righteous asshole in the room to fuck it up.

And it's not about the self-righteous arsehole. It's about the majority of the US being populated with inbreds or dumbasses. Not that the majority of the US population are like that, but the majority of the contry has them scattered all over the place. US television spends half of it's life pandering to them and the other half trying not to offend them. Occasionally you'll find someone with the balls to just say fuck them and make good television but they're fairly few and far between.
However on the internet that ceases to be a problem so the internet is where all the good american humour comes from and it's been having a noticeable effect on the real world too with new acts springing up and more daring T.V. shows. The US is a little behind the times but one of the joys of the internet is the inclusivity of it. It is ahead of the times and is dragging every country that doesn't shun it forwards to catch up with it, wether they like it or not.
I mentioned 9/11 jokes but the US come out with more of them than any other country. Same with Michael Jackson jokes. There have always been people with senses of humour but it's only since the internet came about that they've really been able to cut loose. Whose Line is it Anyway is a good example of one that came beforehand though it and the Zucker Bros./National Lampoon movies/Mel Brooks movies are good examples of movies that had a genuine sense of humour creeping into the mainstream by pretending not to offend anybody but actually lace themselves with very racy humour.
It's that change in personality that the US is undergoing that gives me hope (and also why so many radical factions are coming to the surface in recent times like puss-filled sores, boils to lance)
On cars? Never liked muscle-cars. All power, no brains, no class. They're made to give you a throbbing errection in a straight line but I prefer the winding roads you get in Europe as well as the statement of an Aston.

"All power, no brains, no class." I hope you didn't mean ALL american cars, because last time i checked American cars are actually better not only in performance and price but handling and tech too.
Corvette? Handles better and faster than any Aston/Jaguar (and MUCH MUCH cheaper). Tesla? Faster than most Aston and Jag, that while being heavier and full electric, again, at a much cheaper price.
Viper is even better than a corvette and at or around the same price as a corvette. That can also be considered a Muscle car (maybe the vette's can be one too? i dunno)
These cars are also better than most European cars around the track too. Be it a Lambo, Ferrari or a Porsche. (except Tesla tho, that isn't that good around a track, prolly cuz it's as heavy as a truck)
#95 - 2scared2login (03/12/2014) [-]
OFC when i said viper i meant the ACR X and for Vette i meant the 100k range and not the 4s 34k range. With tesla i also meant the p85+ and not the 60

No need, check car stats and lap times. You'll see it for yourself.
#89 - terminalinfinity (03/12/2014) [-]
Oh and I am in no way trying to say one type of a car is better than the other. Everybody has their own preferences. It really depends on your application. Driving an muscle car on the long open stretches of interstate highways is probably a lot more fun than driving it on the short streets of Japan or any other crowded country. You see that reflected in the designs of each country's cars/motorcycles. For example American Harley-Davidson's are large, loud motorcycles designed for open cruising. Suzuki motorcycles from Japan are designed for tight cornering. Each country designs its cars to fit the demand and the roads.

American Muscle Cars have come a long way since the early days of straight line racing. They really can hold their own on a road course, especially with tweaks to the suspension. My Camaro is really good on a road course, but it is heavily modded, including a complete suspension overhall.
I think the beauty of Muscle cars is they allow you to get whatever performance you want, while being available to anyone. (Supercars are 100K or more) If you just want to get a thrill every now an then, then you can just use it stock and save money. But if you to take corners, you can upgrade the suspension. Or just buy a Corvette (Still holds the #8 and #9 spot on the Nürburgring fastest street car lap times.)
Ford Chevy and Dodge abandoned the straight line only philosophy back around 95
<This is the road course as the same racing facility as the above pic

In the UK we're not very good at being racist since there's no black people and the middle-eastern people have really explosive tempers so we just focus our hatred on different places in the UK for no readily explained reason. Sometimes there's logic behind it, other times there isn't. With Blackpool it's mostly to do with how miserable a coastline the UK has in comparison to places that actually need the + side of their celsius gauges and how pitiful the Blackpool Illuminations are in comparison to places like New York or Las Vegas. Blackpool might be the best we've got, but that doesn't mean we don't point and laugh at it when stacked up against other places that do what it boasts to do better than it can.
But really in the UK you don't need a reason to hate something. You can usually just say a place name and start randomly insulting it and people will join in. It started raining a few days ago and me and my grandma just blamed the town next door and started slagging them off. No reason, it's just how we roll.
As for the muscle cars, I think making them corner is kinda defeating the point of them. They're made to blow skirts up whilst roaring past as opposed to Ferraris which are made to knock skirts down by driving past slowly. I kinda see it as pretty odd. The only American car I can see turning usually only turns in the one direction if you catch my drift.
And just a personal peeve... apart from ford I really hate the naming of most US companies/cars and it really puts me off. I'd hate to drive around in a "Chevy" or a "Dodge". One sounds needlessly corny and the other sounds needlessly extreme. Corvette's not bad but I still can only associate it with plastic cars. It's gonna take a while before the stigma wears off. Skoda have only recently been able to shrug off their old stereotype (with the help of the UK Police force buying up their cars for patrol) and the US has only recently started producing good muscle cars so... maybe in time.

Orig Top Gear is probably more scripted tho, EVERYTHING is done by script, the car failures, crashes, and every unexpected little things too. There are probably only 3 unscripted events happened in the show (from which i believe non made it to the screen) from which 2 was a spin out and 1 crash. (every other spin out was planned).

its abysmally good?
