Most people who know me consider me to be quite sarcastic. It turns out, that's a trait I share with my favorite "snarky British dude" Jeremy Clarkson, who hosts the popular British TV program "Top Gear." The BBC show is dedicated to automobiles and racing but with a biting sense of humor to make things interesting. Well, between all the great European cars and the sometimes nasty commentary, it's no surprise that I've become quite a fan of the show.
This isn't the first time I've featured a "Top Gear" video clip on this blog, and it probably won't be the last. I've dedicated this week's blogs to Ferrari's sportiest-of-the-sporty performance vehicles, the 458 Italia and its predecessor the F430. In today's clip Jeremy Clarkson takes the F430 Scuderia edition out for a spin, and it's not just the Prancing Horse that provides entertainment value. Clarkson rips the F430 for its corny namesake, its technology, and its lack of extras compared with cost, among other things. But it ain't all bad according to Jeremy, as he praises its aerodynamic design and full-on speed king ability. "It feels like it wants to goose your mother." I couldn't have said it better.
