How long will it be until we see the first of these in the US? There are plenty of motor home graveyards around the country that can supply the units. I see the beginning of a new industry...

It's already here. They do figure 8 racing on the speed channel with motorhomes and trailers. Freaking hilarious!!!

That was a real side splitter.

They have school bus racing now too, and they chain the busses together. I forgot what channel that comes in on.

That was fabulous. Top Gear was one of the best shows we discovered while living in the UK.

Did anyone catch the segment just following that race where they showed the ultimate motorhome? Link

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

That is INCREDIBLE!!! I've seen larger coaches with quad slides and even garages at the back but none of them could carry a Roadster!!!!

And it's only $1.5 million! Less the car of course...

Did you see the bottom trailer advertising "Next: Long Way Down?" I wonder how long before it hits the US airwaves.

If you aren't good for anything else, you can always serve as a bad example.

In my opinion not as good as Long Way Round.

Watch out for a Long Way Down through the Americas.
