He's an old British fart but unlike his peers his sense of sarcasm knows no bounds regardless of who you are, who you know and where you come from and that's why so many people love him.
O it knows bounds.
when was the last time you heard him rag on aston martin over ANYTHING.
November 2nd 2003: Jeremy praises the BMW M3 CSL for being a "stripper" and not having any creature comforts at all, not even a radio, saying it adds to the experience and makes the car faster, talks of how great a bargain the car is because it's 60,000gbp, it ran a 1:28 around their track, which was damp at the time. (weighs 1385kg, sports 360hp, meaning 3.85kg/hp)
May 9th 2004: Jeremy talks up the Lotus Exige because it's a super lightweight car with enough power to give it a good power to weight ratio, with it's wonderfull vvt-i motor with a whopping 190hp (the car weighs 875kg, weight/power of 4.605kg/hp). and how it adds to the experience to not have creature comforts.
Nov. 7th 2004, he rips on the viper all day because it has no creature comforts, no roof, now windows, no power accessories, how it's not really a car, it's crude and vulgar and "barndoor engineered" and how overpriced it is, because it costs a whopping 60,000gbp, and the time it ran around the top gear track? 1:28 in the pouring rain. Viper weighs 1540kG or so and has a conservativly rated 500hp, giving it a weight/power ratio of 3.08kg/hp)
so from this we can conclude.... the slower a car is, the more Jeremy likes it.
I'm surprised you have any patients for him at all FFWF, he is constantly bagging on Norway for no good reason either. A couple of Jeremy's Norway bashing fests that come immediatly to mind where that they don't allow smoking in public buildings, that not everyone speaks fluent english, that they don't alow drinking in public, and my personal favourite.... that it's cold. Ya... that's right... and Englishman ripping on another country about the weather..... I seem to recall my mum telling me some storey involving glass houses and stones....
