    Sunday night TV Replica cars on History Channel

    I heard from a friend that there will be an episode on Top Gear this Sunday the 21st. at 1000 pm. Where they will go to NJ and try to pass off replica cars as the real deal. Should be interesting.

    I think it's called Luxury Car Challenge

    Yep. They have a Mera style 308 replica on it. I am sure they will make fun of it every chance they get. I personally HATE the US version of Top Gear anyway. Its not even as close to as good as the original BBC version.. imho

    I totally agree that the American version of Top Gear doesn't cut it.

    The British version of Top Gear can be downloaded at www.FinalGear.com
    All you need to download it is a Bit Torrent program prior to picking which episodes you want.

    Check out "The Car Show" on the Speed Channel... it's actually pretty good. If you are searching for it on your TV, you might also need to search for "Car Show" to get it to come up.

    The Car Show is a Top Gear Knock off.

    But HI's Top Gear is a poor Top Gear Knock Off!!! lol
    Sorry this show has great potential they just need to stop with the stupid Challenges. Yes they are entertaining but come on! At least cut back on them and focus a lot more on the cars.

    Thought I recognized the 308 replica from a listing on CL a few months back and if it was the one it did not have a v6 in it it was the 4cyl. Car still looked pretty good and a lot better than the other two.

    The full episode can be seen here:http://www.putlocker.com/file/968CF88653C68BD3#

    Too bad the Mera's engine was totally worn out. He could hardly get it to pull it's own weight from a dead stop, and top it out at 55 mph. They ragged on him for having a Faux-rrari, but it was definitely the best looking car there! LOL!
    And a steal too, as they were limited to $5000 to purchase the car of their choice.

    Exactly why the car show is a Top Gear knock off because of the stupid challenges they have. All they need is a test track and a masked driver wearing white to be the sig.

    One of there challenges was pretty much the same as one found in Top Gear were the Supercar had to rush through traffic to get to a destination the only difference was one car was a Lambo while the other was a Ferrari and one took place in vegas while the other in New York.

    Either way, it looked great! It was clearly the best looking car there. Did you hear the other two as he was driving up? "No way!", "He did NOT get a Ferrari!". Fooled them both until he pulled up close to them. LOL! ;D
