Biden's $500,000 trip to Paris is really just a cover up for all the money he put into that Camaro.

Trans-Ams are for pussies.

They missed the fastest mile by .1 mph and the driver looks to go about 265 lbs. Guess how I'd bet they could squeeze out that .2 mph.

Crashing a 95 hp car at 220 mph probably looks very similar.

i still never saw a wreck in the video. i want to see the ford gt going 267 MPH.

I don't think a 95 hp car can go 220.  I could be wrong, but I doubt it.   I'm relying on Top Gear maths and physics.

You watch Top Gear, and didn't respond with the "VW Beetle dropped from a helicopter"?

/yeah I know its terminal velocity is less than 220

speed holes?

I remember a bunch of years back when the editor in chief of Car and Driver had a wreck like that at near the same speed, fortunately walked away. Though the video of that wreck, yikes.

Also why the hell did the Camaro have a standard shifter and why was the guy using the clutch for upshifts? Just slows up the acceleration and with how it much time you get to spend with it in top gear just flat out.

That's what I came here to say. Well done.

What on earth is that blue thing in the middle of the engine? I can't imagine it survived the crash/fire and still looks like that, but who would add something to that wreck?

Gaffer tape on the side windows to stop the fluttering?

Where did you get that info from?  It wasn't in TFA.  I doubt most cars with a parachute on the back are running your standard 5 speed.  And given the size of that nitrous fitting in the wreck, I'm pretty sure the clutch wasn't stock.

You just need a bigger spoiler.  And a bigger exhaust tip.
