Pretty good show. I find it very hard to believe that the S7 can only hit 160 in a standing mile...really think it was the driver...
I thought it was a pretty good comparison on the road course...Stig driving the American cars and the TG guys driving the European cars.

Saw this last night. The Saleen definitely needed Stig driving it for all the competitions. 1 mile speed was only 160. Still the best looking car out there - even better than the Lambo.

After watching the BBC version, I cannot take this Top Gear seriously. The cast is terrible.
It is good to see Saleen getting some press though.

I missed it! **** the bad luck. Did they ever test it on the original Top Gear?

adam dawson 11-13-2013 04:42 PM

No. When new, the S7 was not featured on BBC Top Gear.

The S7 was my favorite but **** that Lambo was sweet.

I read somewhere that they had mentioned something about the S7 in the original TG. A test would have been interesting, they never really have anything good to say about American cars.
