Video: US Top Gear film Cobra vs Viper

Updated: 


It's nice to see that like all Anglo-American hybrids, the US version of Top Gear is gleefully plundering the ideas dreamed up on this side of the Atlantic.

The programme makers have been caught on video re-running the Lotus vs Apache 'race' that Clarkson and co produced a couple of series ago.

The ingredients have changed of course; it's now a Cobra attack helicopter against a Dodge Viper. Sounds good to us. Presumably the presenters have been practising how to say 'powwwerrrr' correctly.
