Sexiest Woman Ever

Video from Top Gear of Sabine Schmidt taking a van around Nurbirgring REAL fast. Fast as in she passes sport bikes and 911's.

Even shots of her feet in the video to make Abe happy.

Enjoy,
Adam

hahah - that was awesome!

"I really started paying attention to cars was when they came out with the Nissan Z, the first body. Then I seen the Cherokees, the old square ones, and I was like, “Wow, that’s cool.” Then I seen the Isuzu jeeps and I seen the Wranglers."

The car looks awesome in black. First one I've seen without the two tone paint job.

I like procedures.

Nope. It's a two-tone. Just not as obvious.

You can spec each region the same color to get a solid paint job.

For those who want to spec one themselves.

My favorite bit on this weeks episode was how he 'proved' that left lane hoggers are pedophiles. Had me rolling.

That amused as well as the part where they had to try to justify the artistic significance of the TT, Brera and RX8 to the art experts.

Old clips 'americanized' for us by shooting 'new' studio clips. It's odd watching them after watching the original UK versions. It looks almost fake. Having said that it's a good intro to TopGear for those who are not DL'ing the episodes on torrent.

Talking Top Gear is now on Science Channel Starting Tonight!

AFAIK, the first episode of the "new format" is on for the first time on U.S. airwaves tonight! Lotus Exige is featured (pitted against the Apache Gunship), among other nice cars. Don't worry if you miss it. Re-runs are scheduled for the next few days.

TiVO it, or else.

Enjoy!

Diplomacy is the ability to tell a person to go to hell in such a way that he actually looks forward to enjoying the trip.
