I'll attempt to give you a verbal picture of the rip job.
The video starts out somewhere in Southern California with a Prius I being driven by a Brit (Gearhead Jeremy Clarkson
) with all the "charm" of American Idol's Simon Fuller
and nearly as much objectivity of Art Spinella. He disses the Prius I styling (guess they could not afford to get a Prius II). He continues his rip while driving - "They say..."
- ...it goes from 0 to 60 in 10.6 seconds
- ...it can do 106mph
- ...it gets 66mpg (....uh that's for the Prius II, but he's driving a Prius I)
Goes on to say the "Gawd Awful" Prius has no redeeming qualities whatsoever, and more unsubstantiated opinions. ("I'd rather look at a baboon - the back of a baboon") Recommeded a diesel Golf. (Good luck getting one in California)
For the climax, he drives the Prius to the desert to Billy Bob's parking lot. The redneck takes out his pistol until he is out of rounds, then unloads his machine gun. Finally, he uses an anti-aircraft gun until the Prius has at least as many bullet holes as Bonnie & Clyde's car.
I think the typical fair-minded British would call this review very daft.
