Default What do you think the Top Gear crew will think of the new 370Z?

Top gear is one of the most entertaining tv shows about cars I have ever seen and I understand that their reviews are not always serious but what do you guys think their ultimate feelings will be about the 370z?

I am also very excited to see the z power slide around their track. Also, the Stig will put the car to the test and I want to see what the power lap time will be.

Even if you do not like the show, you can be assured that their artistic style of cinematography will show some awesome shots of the 370z. So lets discuss your thoughts on the Top Gear crew getting their hands on the 370z.

I frankly don't care what Jeremy Clarkson thinks of the 370z. Although I'm pretty sure he'll make the episode entertaining.

Maybe they'll do another Z car lineup like they did when the 350z came out.

I love Top Gear.... My Cousins from the UK got me hooked, and thank goodness my cable provider has BBC America.

More than likely Clarkson won't like it. He's never liked any generation Z. But it'll still be a good show though. Top Gear is my favorite show.

Well Jeremy Clarkson HATED the 350z



but he loved the Nissan GTR. I think he has a lot more respect for Nissan post GTR release. I am curious to see what he thinks about the new 370z

BTW Love the show! One of my fav show on TV.

Clarkson will not like it.... He actually thought the GT-R was boring, so maybe he will say the Z is engaging!! I am just looking forward to the comedy.

Its so depressing that the BBC America Top Gear is edited for content and two years old/behind the current ones.
I watch them for the hell of it but I always watching the current ones on Surfthechannel.com or 5thgear.

The last 4-5 episodes were Hillarious, especially the one where they took the Challenger, z06, and CTV out to the Bonneville Salt flats.

Clarkson will hate the 370Z, hands down.

I'm confused with Jeremy's statements sometimes. The first test that he did, he really liked the gt-r, it almost broke his neck too, but the second test that he did, he said it was a boring car.....But back to the OP's question, i don't think jeremy will like the 370Z....but I know Vicki from fifth gear would love it

I bet he will like it, as it seems an improvement on all the things he did not like about the Z33. Of course he always finds some ridiculous reasons not to like cars, and never in a consistent manner, leading me to believe it is all for the show.

He is wildly entertaining though and I look forward to a review none the less.

He will criticize the interiors materials as he did on the 350z and always does with American cars, even tho this is not an American car, but you get the point.
He will then compare it to a German car.
He will compare it to the old 350z and give some remarks of the history of Z again, he will tell that his heel and toe is better than the new syncro auto rev. transmission but in the end, the 370z will kick his believes but he will still try to give a bad impression of it, but not as he did on the 350z and again, compare it to a German car.
Pure Opinion. btw, Great great show.
