UK’s Top Gear to Test Drive The 2009 Corvette ZR1

Top Gear Testing the Corvette ZR1

The three hosts of the UK’s wildly popular Top Gear show arrived in San Francisco and then headed out to Reno where they picked up their rides for an all-American edition of the show. Frequent critic of all things American Jeremy Clarkson was spotted getting into a 2009 Velocity Red Corvette ZR1 while co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May had to settle with a Cadillac CTS-V and a Dodge Challenger SRT8 respectively.

Following their drive through Reno, billed as the Biggest Little City in the World (figure that one out), the three ended up at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Despite the fact that we’ll hear Clarkson make stupid quips about leaf springs, push rod V8s and plastic-fantastic interiors, we might just be treated to seeing the Corvette ZR1 pushed to its 200+ mph maximum velocity.

I am sure the show will offer plenty of Corvette ZR1 eye candy and we’ll be treated to some sort of stunt that only Top Gear can deliver, but Clarkson’s boorish comments and his bash-America attitude will make watching the segment a chore at best.
