i think this was more of an indirect comparison with the XLR-V.I also found it funny that he drove a new Jaguar XK and talked about how brilliant it is and wondered why Americans won't buy it. The truth is, we'll probably buy more Jaguar XK's then any other country on earth.
You American guys probably don't like being labeled as fat, ignorant idiots, so I can understand why you didn't like this. Maybe next time Jeremy can go somewhere were he hasn't yet focused on... let's say... Australia?
Well, we are fat, ignorant idiots.. for the most part. Jay Leno proves this every week when he does Jaywalking. I never once had a problem with Clarkson's American jokes on TopGear, but here he manipulated everything so unfairly to get his jokes across.. it seemed very un-Clarkson like, but then again this is the first Clarkson DVD I have seen.
I could just as easily go to England and test build quality of old Rovers by filling them with water, but who the hell would care?
I'm actually very curious how many people are asked these questions to get a whole segment of humorous idiots who know nothing.Well, we are fat, ignorant idiots.. for the most part. Jay Leno proves this every week when he does Jaywalking.

Do you really think 100% of Americans cannot name a single European country?
Um...we make cars?I liked it. I'm a Canadian and i have no problem with him bashing the cars we have because 90% of them are garbage.
The only thing that bothers me is when something is blatantly wrong (eg.: "Supercharger wacking the fuel in").Most the stuff on there isnt 100% correct...
Ack! I think we all know what he'd have to say about the Cobalt (rubbish interior build quality, torque-steer, understeer, etc.). He's already tested the STS-V on Top Gear. Dodge Charger = Chrysler 300C with different body (and maybe different suspension, but that's it).Cobalt SS, Cadillac STS-V, Dodge Charger SRT8
Er, I think you mean Dodge Ram. And, perhaps you ignored the pretext to the race: he said that some Americans would actually call the Ram "fast". He was comparing what Americans consider "fast" to what Europeans consider "fast".Comparing an Ariel Atom to a Dodge Viper?
So, you like air seeping into your car making it cold and noisy?Build quality tests by filling cars with water?
