Top Gear V12 Vantage

This post isn't to talk about all the nonsense floating around about Top Gear being over, because it's not. It's about the segment, or film as they would call it about the Aston Martin V12 Vantage.  For the final show of each series they usually do something big, trip through VietNam, a run off against the Germans at the Nurbugring, etc..  This time it was a something different.  This bit on the V12 Vantage is stunningly beautiful.  If Aston Martin didn't pay for this segment, then they should because it's better than ANY ad agency could put together.  The visuals, the colors, the sounds, the music, the editing, just stunning.  If Top Gear does not win some sort of award for this segment then there should never be another TV award given, period, end of story.

Enjoy and leave your thoughts in the comments section.

Old Aussie Car Ads

Season two of Top Gear Australia was much MUCH better than season one, if nothing else it was addition by subtraction with Charlie Cox being replaced as the show host.  A segment that they ran in season two was old car ads from Australia.  It was funny to see that their car ads were just has cheesy and horrible as the ones here in the US.

Michael Banovsky of vLane Blog has an affinity for old quirky car ads, I figured this was right up his alley.  Have a look.

Top Gear Is Back

Sunday the 21st at 8PM on BBC 2 in the UK everyones favorite show about cars and motoring is back. Top Gear returns for it's 13th season. For those of us in North America they run two (usually) series of 8-12 shows a year, but each is classified as a new season.

For viewers in the US I'm sure BBC America will get around to showing this in September or so, but if you want it on Sunday, say about 5-6PM EDT, check out the Final Gear site, they should have the link to download it by then

As per usual they have a couple of great promo for the season posted up. Enjoy!

Official Top Gear America D.O.A.

In a stop in Sydney Australia for a Top Gear Live appearance, Jeremy Clarkson confirmed that Top Gear America would not be going forward.  It is a pretty good clip with some of the usual stuff you'd expect from Clarkson and Hammond.

I'm torn about this.  In some ways I'm sad that we won't have our own version of the show, in other ways, I'm happy because the chances of the show not being totally screwed up for America TV were pretty slim.

Anyway, enjoy this.
