    This show reminds me of one over here called `Brainiac`. Pretty sure it`s the same guy too.

    Anyway. That`s damn fast! (for everyone out there that talks in kilometres, like me, it`s about 274kmp/h)

    I got worried when they broke out the Honda Civic..worried=laughed, but they somewhat redeemed themselves. Oh and why didn`t they run that Ford GT in the background??!! It`s capable of well over 200mph or 322kph. Prob afraid they would wreck it, lol. Kool video though.

    They probably didn`t run the Ford GT cos it was the presenters car and it broke down every 5 minutes and cost him a shed load of cash to bring up to standard.

    I`m sure he has the money to fix it then doesn`t he..no car bashing now. I don`t have a problem with your Euro cars. I own 2 Euro cars(older models i`ve fixed up), + my 2003 mustang (which has never broken down just so u know), and a Grand Am :-p. I love autos :-D.

    Really, glad you could explain that for me..oh wait another european...how many american cars have you driven?? owned?? do you even have more than one? None of my vehicles have caused me any trouble Euro or Amer cause I take care of them...not to mention my mustang is the "coolest/sweetest" of any of them. Quit posting stupid comments, moving on.

    It is generally accepted that american cars are poor from a European view. They are less economical - the price of fuel is more expensive in europe, they are too large - european cities are full of narrow streets and few car parking spaces, they handle poorly - US doesn`t tend to have windy roads like Europe and so prefer a soft suspension for comfort but makes the drive worse.

    Thats why only in the last couple of years US manufacturers, other than Ford, have been marketing cars to Europe and they`re generally designed for the european market. I`m sure Americans would rather have an American car over a european one to suit their needs better.

    Rant over.

    I think that is from brainiac. And for all the idiots out there who wanna try this, unless the camera doesnt go off, your screwed. If they see you in the first pic, and dont see you in the second, im sure they can figure out you were speeding just a wee bit.

    American cars vs European cars? Serriously, where is the debate?

    I would take an M1 Abrams any day...what the hell do you all have to match that? 1500 hp and top speed of 45 mph...but no one would come knocking on your door should you happen to speed a bit..would they?

    wolfio: America has plenty of supercars, such as the Dodge Viper and Chevy Corvette ZO6. And the AC Cobra is an American car. Carrol Shelby (from Texas) only used the AC as a base, reinforcing the frame and adding a Ford 427 Cobrajet eingine. It was made in America and sold at Ford dealerships.

    As for the debate of American cars vs. cars from Europe... generally, they`re both equally junk. If you want a truely reliable car, go with a Japanese one.

    Also the younger guy who was conducting the experiment is the guy I want to be the host of Pimp My Ride UK instead of that cringeworthy embarrassing middle aged white wannabe gangsta that is Tim Westwood.
