Default Raptor on TopGear America

For 49k you can not only get a raptor you can get a velociraptor by hennessey 475hp just saying you Guys would like it foust drove the shit out of it. And they used the velociraptor 600 for the track test, supercharged with you guessed it 600hp lol

Badass truck at a less than Cadillac price. Ford's onto something here, I believe

Just watched it On Demand. Awesome, loved the Raptor vs. Halo race! I'm going to see if the local Ford dealer has one/get one so I can test drive it!

i loved it! i was so excited to see it. my favorite part was probably when foust was driving down the road and hes all "if you want to just turn of the road, you do this" and he just flew off the side of the road into the desert. sooooo ( . Y . )

Im still on the fence about the show too. Its good, but its not as funny as the BBC version. I loved last weeks episode when they were hammering that old caddy


After watching the show last night, I came to the conclusion: I need me a raptor

i just think they are trying too hard to be like the original and none of the hosts are even a little funny.

yeah thats what makes it worse because you can tell they're trying to be funny when neither of them are. I like that switch he flipped in the city to make it way louder too haha. I'd definitely have that switch flipped on at all times

x2. The delivery of the jokes are horrible, it comes across as them just reading their lines as opposed to the BBC where they at least appear to be having a fun time.
