    This may be digging up an old thread, but here's my pitch. Watch the episode with the GT1 Porsche.

    If this car was on Top Gear (and yes, I'm a Top Gear fanboy) you can rest assured that the Paris Hilton wanna-be in the Gallardo would not be interrupting.

    Clarkson would give it quite the thrashing while point out both its positives and negatives and he certainly wouldn't settle for 162 mph and he wouldn't be doing it in a race outfit.

    Next, it would be visibly exciting. Top Gear is known for making cars that they insult look stellar on film.

    Here is SuperCars Exposed covering the Porsche GT1. Should be very exciting.

    This is just an example of the cool things you'll see on Top Gear.

    You won't see that on SuperCars Exposed!

    I find it interesting people are comparing SPEED channel to MTV. Seeing as MTV puts out not some of, but actually the worst, most disgusting and unintelligent drivel to come out for television ever- it’s safe to say that SPEED really truly has gone downhill. And I agree. At the moment, I can’t think of any remotely decent show on SPEED, except the Baja 1000 and that’s on once a year.

    i can't stand tanner foust or however you spell his name. i can't take him seriously... maybe its his hollow voice and commentary. I feel like he is announcing or reporting the whole time... where as top gear is kind of a narrative. I dunno food for thought

    I can't stand SpeedTV... when it was Speedvision it was incredible, a true gearhead's heaven of a TV channel. Now I refuse to watch it. I download BBC and Eurosport coverage of motorsport. I don't get to watch the races live anymore, but that is a small price to pay to get vastly improved coverage.

    People seriously need to quit comparing this show to Top Gear or even suggesting that its more like Top Gear.

    If you want Top Gear then go watch it.

    I think all Supercars exposed needs is a real Supercar enthusist. Someone like VRAlexander or Jay Leno, Titus, Jesse James should host that show, Tanner I couldn't agree more he's more of a TV reporter than a host. To me it sounds like he's trying to interview the car than anything, they just need a true supercar owner who's got skills and that show will be rocking.
