Did Top Gear ever review the S550?

As asked... I'm sure Clarkson would have found some way to dog it, but Hammond would love the thing. Would love to see their review if it happened.

I watched Top Gear regularly before Clarkson was sacked.
But unfortunately never saw a review about the S550. Wish they made one though.

It will probably go something like this...
"It doesn't have the refinement of an M3 coupay (coupe) but it is bloody fun to drive." Then it will show him driving it on the track getting sideways.

I'm pretty sure that they did (don't recall the episode #). If I'm recalling right, they raced it against the Camaro ZL1. I think you can watch it on YouTube.

Nope, they never tested the S550.

I'm sure the replacement presenters for Top Gear will test it though. I won't be watching it.

Whatever James Jeremy and Richard's new show is called, I really hope they test the S550.

FYI James was just recently spotted driving a batmobile, presumably for filming the new show.

Clarkson would say, Same engine +300 lbs on the GTs than the 2012s. . .
Its amazing how the weight crept up from 3400 lbs base car 2012 to 3700 lbs base car on the 2015+.


We are more likely to see the GT350 on Top Gear EU though.

I could have swore I saw the s550 in the intro clip on episode 1 season 22. Sadly they canned the show and that footage was never released(if I actually saw it.). Hopefully that forage gets leaked of it exists.
