Top Gear Ausie season 2 eps 2

Top Gear Australia

ive been watching TopGear UK for over 5 years now and yes i love it . when TopGear Australia was launched, i was a bit skeptical.. and the first season proved to be just an average attempt and i really thought you guys shoud have shorten the pauses. but anyways . that was last season and this is first season. and boy o boy . do i love it or what! 🙂 great job…

In episode 2, Steve take the new HSV Clubsport R8 for a spin to figure out why Australians bought more V8’s in 2008 than anyother year. They also have a look at the Holden Special Vehicle’s Clubsport R8 by Walkinshaw Performance.
Also on the show, Warren and Steve are given $3000 each to build their own low cost electric car from existing petrol powered ones.
Warren and James race in reverse around the track in the name of science and legendary Australian rocker, Ian Moss (Cold Chisel) is the Star in the Bog Standard Car.

With car owners forced to suffer high petrol prices and the environmental impact of cars now more a concern, Australians have responded to these issues the best way they could – by buying more V8s in 2008 than ever before.

So for those happy to sell their first-born to pay for petrol and think the greenhouse effect is the latest diet craze out of the States, Top Gear Australia has the car for you – the HSV Clubsport R8.

“Basically it’s an SS Commodore that’s been to HSV boot camp and come back with a bigger engine, bigger brakes and a Schwarzenegger body pack,” Steve Pizzati.

Want something better? Top Gear Australia has uncovered Australia’s best kept performance car secret. The Holden Special Vehicle’s Clubsport R8 by Walkinshaw Performance or affectionately known around the Top Gear Australia office. The Superclubby.

“Buying a superclubby is like ordering a pizza. You choose the toppings you like and you can get them to hold the anchovies,” said Steve.

While Australians have to wait another 12 months before the first electric car is unleashed on our shores, Top Gear Australia decide to build their own low cost electric car from existing petrol powered ones. Armed with $3000 each, Warren and Steve take their iconic Australian car of choice into the garage for a power make-over before they battle it out on the track in true Top Gear Australia fashion.
