You know how the boys at Top Gear are. They’re despicably adventurous when it comes to road and track-testing cars. They’re also crazy enough to pit cars that are of totally different segments, just for the fun of it. To refresh your memory, these guys had paired a Ford Fiesta and a Chevrolet Corvette against one another, AND tried running a Jaguar XK120 alongside a Vincent Black Shadow plus a train.
Seriously. So if you take their results in confidence, then you’re probably as terminally crazy as they are. And if there’s anything this show is all about, it’s fun, fun and more fun with cars.
In their latest video, they put the Chevrolet Camaro up against a very unlikely foe—the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. Granted, both cars have a similarly displaced 6.2-liter V8 engine, but engine specs can be deceiving on paper. Still, you have to admit it’s very entertaining to see The Stig hoon the Benz around Top Gear’s air strip test track in an attempt to par with the Camaro.
Oh, what the heck!? If you’re into vuvuzela, then you might enjoy watching this video with The Stig jabbing the German luxury car’s throttle. And if there’s anything in this video that’s worth watching, it’s seeing the Benz hooning around a track like it isn’t supposed to. Enjoy, people.
