Jeremy Clarkson Meets the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V
Top Gear host and automotive curmudgeon Jeremy Clarkson has consistently professed his disgust for American cars, claiming that a European variant of the Chrysler 300 had “wallow-matic suspension” and that driving the Jeep Grand Cherokee was so uncomfortable it felt like it was “made entirely from melted Lego.”
That’s why Clarkson’s recent, glowing review of the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V required a double-take: he actually liked it. You can see his full review of this new BMW M5-eating Caddy (and more of his entertaining reviews) over in the Times Online driving section.
Update: The UK Mirror is reporting (via Autoblog) that Clarkson recently survived a serious car crash during the filming of a recent episode of Top Gear. For more info, read the Autoblog take on the UK Mirror story. We all hope that Clarkson heals quickly and is up and driving again soon.
