Thanks to AutoTempest.com for sponsoring this series!
On today's episode of Car Trek, AutoTempest challenged us to find three cheap exotics that are better than a new C8 Corvette. We bought a pimped-out Ferrari 360, Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, and a gated manual Lamborghini Gallardo that may have been underwater at some point in its life. Then we found out what's wrong with them. Oh boy...

I still can't get over how badly Ed and Freddy cheated!
You already knew that Ed wouldn't show up to this kind of challenge in a car with a clean title, so that shouldn't have come as a surprise. And his car also came with a plethora of related problems, so it's still a pretty even playing field. The only benefit he got was that his car looks better from the outside.
@craig wall 89
I cant get over the fact that your undershirt is longer than your button up.
Freddy didn't cheat, but Ed nearly always does
Tucker Stafford gotchu hommie
Nice video guys, you have all convinced me that a C8 Corvette with a warranty is the way for me to go
Jist disable that stupid cylinder limiter
This is the best like “Top Gear challenge” by someone who is not James, Jeremy, and Richard I’ve ever seen
But the camera quality is to good for top gear
Congrats on 1k likes, you’re welcome 😉
Yeaaaaahhhh.... this feels like its trying just too damn hard to be Top Gear. Enjoyable...but forced. Everything from the laughs, the bantering, etc.
They even styled the logo after top gears haha
I am so glad I stumbled upon this series! This is better then all the car shows on Velocity and you each have a great personality and presentation. I hope Autotempest makes a mint off this because I would really like to see this repeated again and again. The highlighting of these cars, the costs, the tips / warnings / and comedy are pure gold! Thank you for a great experience!
Tavarish, Ed and Tyler, you guys did an amazing job! This feels like the good old days of Top Gear. Keep up the great work! Now let me binge watch the $#*T out this show! It's going to be a fun day!
I'm so happy I stumbled across this series, taking me back the good old British top gear days.
You guys just did what every single car guy with Clip-Share aspirations secretly dreamed of doing ever since top gear 1st aired.... and it makes me want to cry because it’s perfect.
Awesome series!!! Going to binge the rest of the episodes right now. Thank you Tavarish for this awesome series. Brings back memories like the old top Gear with some of my favorite creators. Couldn't have chosen a better group of guys.
Cool to see top gear having paved the way for the dozens of youtuber challenges like this. even the way you guys rolled up with the cars you got was so reminiscent of the top gear cheap supercar challenge, banter and all. top notch.
It's always amazing to me how often we forget Occam's Razor. Even Tavarish, who certainly knows his way around a toolbox, did not immediately deduce the Gal was out of Gas. Not criticizing -- i've done it myself hundreds of times, not immediately going to the most obvious or probable explanation.
Great intro. I see you three have excellent chemistry together. As soon as the Covid19 goes away, time for you three to tour the USA doing challenges and reviews. All three of you. It would be huge..oh wait..you guys are already doing all that. Love every episode.
guys i just want you to know.. that you become my first international cars program taking over top gears old space. i have to congratulate you guys cos you pull a nice content just like we want and with a 5 star mechanic scenes! with tunes and mantainence! we love that! cheers!
Finally - someone pays decent homage to Clarkson/May/Hammond. Every other effort has been so cringingly awful. This was fun.
Even i think grand tour is cringy with even actual cast from old top gear, it's just feel like a student copying their friends homework and change it slightly so the teacher won't notice. This show is carrying those old tg spirit but have their own soul and appeal.
I watched the first minute and couldn’t stop smiling . You three together ! It feels like a good American top gear garage 😂. I love this thank you!
Ok am at minute 13 and I see what you do 😅😅
Wow this really does feel like a love letter to old school Top Gear! I really hope this is only the beginning of many more "car challenges" to come!
i like how that car mechanic talks. so soothing, smooth and chill. especially 16:24 "you just gotta, give it a little bit a love and it'll be ok"
I fee like that mechanic was the star of the show, usually the nice guys know their stuff frontwards, backwards and upside-down. Super cool dude
Amazing how engineers (especially exotics) to build a car around it’s most common faults making simple repairs multi hour operations.
Sort of, but EVs have the draw back of being able to fucking KILL YOU if you do something wrong. If the engine is off there's really very few ways to badly hurt yourself working on an ICE vehicle, but high voltage changes everything.
@Tk3997 I think EVs significantly improve the maintenance requirements over ICE which have become bloated and incredibly complex in recent years
This is becoming more and more common even on 'normal' cars unfortunately. They're chasing emissions instead of pure performance though. The result is basically the same though which is cram as much shit into as small a space as possible. Makes the car a better driver while it's working, but does nothing good for maintainability. Bonus points for more and more 'non-serviceable' components too which you can basically translate to "pay hundreds or thousands of dollars to replace an entire assembly isntead of the 15-30 dollar seal/bearing within in it that's actually defective".
Marvel : Endgame is the most ambitious crossover in the history.
Tavarish, Ed & Hoovie : Hold my beer
This is so much like Top Gear, but you're not trying too hard, I genuinely believe you three should get a show, this is just as entertaining as the actual Top Gear and it just feels natural what you guys are talking about, I LOVE IT.
Can’t go wrong with these 3! Love hoovies charisma
Love watching these guys ! Better than a Top Gear America by far ! 👍👍
This is the best 30 minute ad I've ever seen. Kudos autotempest
It’s the same as Every top gear episode ever 😂 and I love it
Yes I am loving this production they got going here
Also I like the fake advertisement at the end
Yep. Got me to check out their site.
Just discovered this channel. Awesome content guys. Keep it coming.
This needs to become a series. Its begging for more adventures in the future.
Next they should do a stock track car for under 30k
Such a good show!! When is the next one?
@Someone Bald fourthed
Yes yes please!
Second that emotion
Make it a full blown show 😍 I’m late for watching but can already say after some minutes I love that format 😍😍 the Aston is my favorite so far
i really enjoy this style and format of the show. Its very OG new top gear in a very good way. keep it up. do more please.
Aside from the well thought out plug, this was a nice video. I hope to be able to afford a nice car like these one day
These guys are hilarious and the mechanic is a cool dude.
I would seriously watch this if this was a regular show, like I would set aside time weekly to watch it.
Ed - Jeremy: The voice. He's owned, sold, and lived exotics for years. He has an insane amount of experience explaining the nuances that make a vehicle a driver's car. He can pull an simile out of his ass like the best of 'em.
Tavarish - James: The actual gear head. I think his garage knowledge on the next episode will be a perfect analogy to May's seemingly random spurts of airplane and mechanical facts.
Tyler - Richard: The wildcard. Has owned the worst so he can appreciate the best. He played by the rules and his secret genius has put him in hooptie after hooptie, only to land him in the best purchase... so far.
Excited to see where the series goes, gentlemen. Great job.
Edward Jackson nice comparisons my dude
Dude, for real
This should be pinned at the top comment !!! Extremely well written !!!
Good write-up thumb up
This show is awesome man, I cant wait for more episodes
Bottom line: you guys are living the dream. Kudos!!!
These 3 together are like a better version of top gear. That manual Lambo is pretty sweet btw other than it breaking down lol
I love how functionally awkward Hoovie is. My favorite host for sure. Great show guys.
For what its worth after watching #lifeofpalos and seeing your responses to how long it takes to do your builds. I respect your responses and am now a subscriber.
A sponsored Top Gear rip off with three American youtubers. This is literally a recipe for disaster. And yet... it’s brilliant. I don’t know how you guys managed to pull it off, but this is by far one of the best videos on Clip-Share I’ve seen in a while.
This American Top Gear is WAY better than the Televised American Top Gear
Still kicking sting
It's been proven impossible to dislike anything Ed touches.
This right here is everything that American Top Gear should have been.
Everytime a British show is Americanized it becomes a pale version of the original - Yes, The Office included.
Car Trek> American Top Gear.
That automotive technician is more than what you expect from a super car mechanic, you can tell he has worked on a lot of super cars to know what is common
I was always a fan of mid engine sports cars. I used to own a Fiat X1/9 and a Indy Fiero. They didn’t have much power but they were fun to drive! That Corvette C8 is so cool!
I literally had no idea the 3 of you created a show like this. Amazing.
Haha in the beginning of their argument base price C8. 👌 Also the excitement from 10 to 1 @9:50. Made my day. Overall nice vehicles and video.
This is absolutely brilliant. Soak it in, boys... this had to have been the time of your lives. Please tell me you're looking for sponsors to do the next series already.
Or just sell the remainder super car and do a 5k car challenge
This was really interesting 😄😄😄 looking forward to great content like this in the future.
Good work all round. Yes y'all have better chemistry than a lot of Top Gear hosts
What a great show, I loved the original UK Topgear even though i'm from Australia, partially because of the way they interacted & the challenges, you guys have that, we tried to do a version here, didn't work, they did a new version in the UK, still a no go, even the original Topgear guys started another show, just didn't work. I haven't even finished watching & I have already liked & subscribed, nice to see your not shy with your spends, cheers.
Was honestly expecting this to be cringe, but damn, good job, guys! Emulated the old Top Gear challenges without feeling cheesy, jokes were well paced, I genuinely had a decent laugh a couple of times. Keep it up, great first attempt!
I had a very memorable North Georgia mountain drive in my Lotus Exige led by Ed back when the Vantage V12 had just came out. I clearly remember getting air right next to a Vantage V12 at speed. Fun times! Thanks, Ed!
Ed is Clarkson, Hoovie is Hammond, Tavarish is May. You can’t convince me otherwise
They are trying to hard to by like top gear
They're all goobers
All I see are 3 James mays
I'd say Hoovie is more like Quentin Wilson from old Top Gear. Hammond is useful with a spanner.
@cedric burmann He cheated on the budget and James May cheats even when playing monopoly so yeah, I still think Tavarish is James May 😂
Tbh, this gives me the old top gear vibes with Jeremy, James, and Richard.
with the og trio of the grand tour slowly coming to a point where they cant make any more programs, this is definitely what we need right now. please do more of this!!!!
All way to expensive, but if I have to chose, and I am not paying for it, then the ASTON would be what I take. lol Great team up vid guys
Please keep doing these! I love them. Call Amazon or Netflix and get a series going ... actually Clip-Share give em a Clip-Share TV show.
They should do a segment on repair/maintenance costs for these cars. Like the Range Rover models, there is a reason they depreciate so much. It can costs thousands for just a basic oil change - and way more than that for a clutch - or other normal parts that just wear out. You can easily spend $10k on a maintenance stop on a Lamborghini. When you spend the same cost on a Corvette, you get a new car with a warranty that will perform just as well, if not better, than most of these they are using as an example.
This is Motortrend levels of quality, without the bullshit pay to watch the ending thing.
Anthony Young without a doubt
Half motor trend half top gear?
This whole series is great...the trifecta is gold. You guys should be the next "Top Gear"
I’ve always loved the og Uk top gear and hated the new one and anyone that tried to recreate it. But after seing this, I love it, very well documented and put together. The cast have genuine chemistry and not forced chemistry. Love it keep it up lads!
I would like to see one of these where you put 10,000 miles on them and let us know the cost per mile (if they make it).
This was fun guys. Keep them rolling, no pun intended. 😋
I guess the thrill of these cars is never knowing what’ll go wrong and how much it’s gonna cost.
This needs to become a series, id watch the hell out of this
@ThE RaGiNg GaM3R i know about the grand tour, but i want MOAR!
*WE NEED THIS!*
I appreciate you man, but i'm well aware of Top Gear and The Grand Tour. Good looking out though
It’s called “TopGear” great show just like this but the old one, the good one now is called “The Grand Tour”! Check it out!
Awesome content! Met Ed a few times over the years in Atlanta, great guy and loves to help people.
Yes yes YES! So amped to see more CarTrek. Great show so far
I drove the C8 in Kentucky 2 months ago and I can agree that it is in fact the most magnificent thing to come out of the United States since Hershey’s chocolate
Clarkson, Hammond and May, eat your heart out. This has the original Top Gear vibe all over it. Keep them coming :)
Been watching VinWIki for a long time.
First time seeing this series.
As soon as Ed got out of the car and asked Hoovie if he'd been in Florida for long enough to "become addicted to crystal methamphetamine", I was sold.
Top Gear, eat your heart out.
I would love to see this go for 22 seasons then some one punching the producer and then going on Amazon ✌ loved cartrek
Chef C It took many seasons for their chemistry to build to what we remember. The early top gear episodes are good, but IMHO not like the latter half.
Chef C ..... I Agree , but the old kings are gone, and this is better than the actual Top Gear ..... so i hope they continue
Ed knows more about that Lambo than the mechanic... he is like a smooth speaking exotic car information program.
I know nothing about cars but this has made my learning about cars very entertaining. I didn’t want to stop watching 😍
Somehow this is just as good as the UK top gear show. I hope they start car reviews and all that jazz👍
Thanks guys, this video put a huge smile on my face - very reminiscent of the original Top Gear
Gents those cars are all incredible and I salute you all for getting the best bang and beauty performance for the buck. Sub and thumbs up very up
this is basically a budget top gear and I love it, you guys should have a show together
U 3 guys are perfect for this but up your production values! defiantly worth it!
Pretty damn good video series, reminds me of top gear but more in depth with a good triangle of youtubers
Well, at least the Gallardo looks amazing while sitting at the gas station for a half hour to fuel. My soft spot for the Gallardo's aesthetics is quite serious so I think it's the best looking of any of the cars in this challenge. Particularly in that shade of blue.
Please Autotempest! Make more of these! We miss the good old days of Top Gear
Good video, these guys are funny to watch... but seeing this just makes me want to buy a new C8 rather than buy anything used from Auto Tempest!
If anyone ever doubted the effect Clarkson, Wilman, Hammond, and May had on the automotive community, they're no longer doubting it.
Yeah, but at least those guys have an excuse for liking all of this overpriced trash. They're old guys from Europe.
I want one of them to scream CLARKSON
I felt like this episode was doing burnouts in the highest gear 😜
I'm comming back to this series, its my 3rd time re-watching, and now the intro and everything reminds me of the Grand Tour, Feddy reminds me of Jeremy Clarkson, Ed reminds me of James May, and Tyler reminds me of Richard Hammond
Great Series guys!!! Hope you do another!!
Holy shit. How did I go all of quarantine without knowing this show existed??? I've been watching VinWIKI and Hoovies Garage this whole time but NEVER knew this show existed. My god. I'm in heaven. Finally a car show that's meant for truly car-obsessed individuals.
I was always told to NEVER buy a flood damaged car. I'm going to hold to that lol.
So excited to finally release this! It was truly the most fun I have ever had doing anything that could remotely be considered "work" and it was an honor to do it alongside Tyler & Freddy. I hope you all enjoy the series.
Am sort of watching the series backwards. Quickly becoming my favorite auto content on the Tube.
Cannot get enough Car Trek.
A perfect combination of characters!
Why weren't you chosen for top gear USA?
They need to try again man
ed this shit is along the top gear(old trio) and their grand tour level, we need it forever its fantastic
I hope we enjoy the next 3 cars you guys choose for the next run.
Damn how lucky you are with this 360. You find a nice mechanic who says that car is in a good shape, and minor leak to be fixed (free).
In the real world, if I buy a cheap ferrari, I am hundred percent sure that it will cost me wife and kids to be reliable :'D
I love how this shop has all of these exotic cars, and there, in the back, sitting on a frame rack, in all metal, waiting for its share of love, a Datsun 510!
And then in the closing credits a 240Z! This guy has heart!
you guys should be on grand tour or top gear if they’re still a thing
These 3 teamed up!!! OMG.. this feels like a tv show..I will be watching for now on.
Found this show yesterday and watched Series 4.
Now catching up on series 1-3...while working from home.
Sorry boss, "my Internet connection was fiddly all day so the spreadsheet kept going down. You know how it is."
Can't wait for series 5.
I’m so enthralled with the fact that this show exists. Great job to all three of you!
really enjoyed this guys, keep it up
That exact Vanquish S is Bad Ass! It looked great when he 1st pulled up... Everybody was speechless. Looks like a McKlaren mixed with a Mustang GT, Absolutely Beautiful Ride Man. Clearly the Winner, a c8 '20 Vette is North of 80 easily
I like the Mechanic. He's laid back and appears to be knowledgeable
It figures Hoovie would finally get a car in overall good shape when it isn't his money to lose.
We need more of the mechanic. Does he have his own channel?
This is old school top gear level production. MARVELOUS
Mike Anderson You can just pretend that this is American Top Gear.
The only thing I don't like is how it looks. Awful lens flare and as a result(from shooting without a hood) low contrast, the yellowish color grading makes it even worse. I found it so distracting I had to rewind several times because I completely missed what they're talking about. They should have went with natural look(like how their videos look normally) and just kept everything else the same instead of it looking like it's shot on Mars.
Hopefully these guys will actually drive cars on a race track which was the only bearable part of Top Gear.
yeah i was gonna say this is the new top gear XD
I got so excited when I realized that was what it was I am a fan of Top Gear and just the similarities made me smile
not gonna lie. I lost it laughing when Ed was giving his "Demonstration" of how to refuel a Gallardo and it shot out everywhere.
Copter Cop Hush you! :P Damn boomers mocking my choice of modern phrases... Though I kind of agree.... Now that I think about it, that's one of the most redundant statements ever. I shan't be using "Not gonna lie" in this context anymore... xD
We NEED more episodes of this!
"Does it have a clean title?" "No it doesn't have a clean title" 90% of FB marketplace auto posts.
@Bishop Mno ownership DOES NOTMEAN STOLEN ...you can always take the risk (which is zero risk at all if free) and have the police check.
@Bishop M who would steal a car and then give it away instead of selling it or scrapping it?
No shit found a car for free on fb marketplace. Only catch, no title at all.
Shane Cherry still has “very good condition” under the specifications
