I just hope we can put some Valvetronic sauce on his touring. Harris is the GOAT, one of our teams biggest inspirations

After his comments and him making a pig face 2 years ago he holds very little meaning for me. Atleast Clarkson stands his ground and still says a 911 is a beetle.

Real question is whether he orders an m3 touring to pair with his 991.2 touring?

Excellent praise for this car. Wish it was stateside!

To me, Chris Harris is the king of the track any day of the week; he's entertaining, fun to watch, and as he put it with the Travolta analogy, if I ever meet him, I'd just want him to drive and wouldn't bother him with cliche questions.

My understanding is that he bought one already; say no more.

I may be wrong in saying so and, stand to be corrected, but I think he did.

Get a load of this Chris Harris "gem". Literally every line was or has turned out to be wrong.

https://jalopnik.com/lamborghinis-ar...t-d-1654408306

"So I really do think Lamborghini is in trouble. Even after all these years of German ownership it doesn't sit easily within the VW Group. The Huracan will have the new Audi R8 – effectively the same car – snapping at its heels and it can't (thankfully, some might say) expand into SUVs and big sedans because that's Porsche and Bentley's role. Of course, what Lambo should be doing is making million-dollar low volume specials, but when it does that we get the Veneno, which next to the LaFerrari and friends looked like a self-build by someone harboring severe penis-envy.

Can the Asterion stop the rot? I hope so. It's a brilliant concept and were it to make production it would be the perfect antibiotic to counter the germs of understeer, if indeed they can purge the thing of generic Lambo-understeer.

If they don't build it, then I think the future is bleak, at least until someone asserts themselves in a De Montezemolo-style intervention."

Respectfully, I think you've mistaken Chris Harris for Jesus

He voiced his personal opinion especially with statements like "So I do really think" or "If they don't build it, then I think...."

I do respect your input though

He's always said it looks like rubbish, but drives excellently. So much so that it causes him a lot of grief and consternation because if they had styled it to look good, it would be perfect.

I watched the whole video just to make sure, and he does not comment on the external appearance once.


Sounds like he is sticking with what he said originally to me...
