I'm sure it'll be a great car, but it looks like a Volvo S40 with aggressive styling
Exactly what I was thinking too, and the new Volvo S80 has the same function on the brakes...And my favorite bit is when the brake lights of the car start flashing when Clarkson's doing the hard braking. It got ratified apparently.
yeahExcellent episode - I'm amazed the rocket worked as well at it did - kudos to the team behind it.
Anyone else notice the ESP on the Brabus was locking the front wheels (evidenced by puffs of tyre smoke) as it vainly fought to stop the thing sliding?
My thoughts on that car tooyeah
i mean it was doing its job alright, keeping things in check, but those 12 pot calipers were properly snatching the breaks hard to keep the car on the black stuff, it was making the damn thing judder back n forth through the corners.
they should of hired a merc engineer to come in and turn off the TC properly like tiff did for the big AMG ML63, becuase even when you turn the TC off, it will still kick in in an emergency. but the engineers can plug a lappy in and go into the computer and properly disable it completely
agreed, but u gotta give it to them.. The rocket rulled. JC didnt wanna do anythin with it, but in my eyes this rocket-robin bit was the best explosion bit on Top Gear ever. At least they had a reason to blow it up, for their space mission. Better then all those stupid caravans, and porsches JC trashed. I bet he was just jelous . Loved that piece.honestly, it was rubbish.
all the same old jokes, everything was blatantly overscripted etc.
the robin launch was touching, tho the whole segment was more like myth busters. and we already have myth busters, they're called.. aah.. "Myth Busters". see, youre not laughing cause old jokes are not fun, told you.
it may be a reverse angle or something because it landed behind a hill.When you watch it frame by frame you will notice it's actually edited, this is not footage of this rocket hitting the ground. Anyways, it looks cool One more thing I've noticed - look at those poor cows watching this:
They must have been amazed
And up there you can see people watching from some platform.
For those of you who don't have it recorded, here's the photostory frame by frame:
