Hammerhead Eagle iThrust Tested by Autocar UK

Boxy, but bad
Boxy, but bad

If you caught last night’s episode of Top Gear, and didn’t spend the entire time backing up and re-watching the part with the R8 and Corvette eating up the track like a grizzly consumes a hiker, then you caught the bit about their electric car. Not only did they sacrifice a TVR Chimaera for the task, but the outcome could best be described as a dog’s breakfast if it hadn’t been modestly amusing to watch Clarkson work with razor-sharp metal sans-gloves. But regardless, like any proud car maker, they wanted validation for their efforts, and handied the car over to Autocar for a road test.
Autocar, game as they are, took the boys up on their tongue in boxy-aluminum cheek and have posted the findings of their “road test” on the web. How’d it do? Let’s just say they didn’t find the car’s personality to be electrifying, but you’ll probably get a charge out of it just the same.
cockpit has never been more appropriate.

    Uhm… "yo dawg, we heard you liked cars built by drunk Englishmen in a shed, so we took a car built by some drunk Englishmen in a shed and had some different drunk Englishmen in another shed use it for parts"?

    Kind of reminds me of those vehicles that they use to chase the tornadoes…. except in looks only, not in strength.
    I'd try to post a picture, but every time I do that, my post is deleted. (anyone experience this? is there some rule i'm violating?)

    La, la, la, I can't hear you. I'm still working on getting the HD episode to a suitable viewable location.

      IF you figure that out, let me know. I'm not happy not being able to not view TG on my big TV as I cannot xfer the HD file to my pen drive.

        In my case, it is really easy. I just connect my laptop's DVI out to a DVI to HDMI adapter ($5 at monoprice). The HDMI goes to the TV and I get TG goodness showing all of Clarkson's makeup. There are other ways. If you have a DVR connected to your home network (Tivo, Moxi, or even XBOX, PS3, AppleTV, Roku) you can usually use UPnP which allows you to stream media from a computer in a different room to the TV through the XBOX or Tivo or whatever. There can be annoying digital rights management stuff for some content but I doubt the people encoding the video for Top Gear enable it.
