Lord Jesus.....can't believe Donzi allowed themselves to be associated with that show. I've tried real hard to be open minded about their different format from the AWESOME UK version, but they just kill me. I guess I'll watch it for the Donzi.

I was pretty excited when they said it was coming here, but it blows. I can't imagine what the Brits are saying about our version of it. They are constantly doing insignificant races, challenges, stats, etc.. Not nearly as good as the UK version

It's Craig Barrie in the orange Donzi. Should be entertaining.

I've said it on another thread...I actually don't mind the show. I don't think it's as good as the original but I also was not a die hard fan of the original so I'm not insulted at the American version as many seem to be. It's entertaining enough. I don't try to compare it to the English version...Just take it for what it is. Looking forward to seeing Craig rockin' the Donzi.

The only British version I saw had a Chrysler 300C Hemi and they bashed it as a brut with HP but un-reformed handling (I have a Charger SRT-8). They said the English have their own 4 door "performance car" and pitted the Chrysler against a M5 claiming it was just as fast with a more enjoyable ride, etc.......

The M5 costs nearly triple what a Chrysler Hemi (non-SRT version) costs. Seemed pretty biased and I never watched it again.
