James May ROASTS the DriveTribe Dodge Charger Hellcat!

James May is the target of yet another Drivetribe on YouTube roasting session. The former Top Gear host has previously been seen mocking celebrity cars, but not in this video.

Drivetribe’s resident Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody, a long-term loaner that Richard Hammond previously used to commute to work, is on display for this roast. It’s time for Captain Slow to air his grievances about the four-door American muscle after the other member of The Grand Tour trio did so.

May first referred to the Charger as ridiculous because of how enormous it is. Even wider than a Range Rover, according to Hammond’s observation. In fact, the Range Rover is only 120 millimetres (4.7 inches) wider than the widebody Charger, which is impressive given how large the Range Rover SUV is.

The left-hand-drive configuration was mentioned in other comments from May, who claimed that the passenger finds it alarming (given that they will be nearer the opposing lane).

The Charger’s interior received the brunt of May’s criticisms, which again is consistent with Hammond’s remarks. He hinted at the cabin’s tacky appearance by calling it “not polished, not discreet, not polite.”

May and his co-presenter in the video also noticed a mystery can under the hood. While he praised how beautiful (and large) the supercharged Hemi V8 was, he couldn’t help but notice the poor craftsmanship on the unknown part added inside the bonnet.

May was a bit restrained in critiquing the┬áCharger SRT Hellcat Widebody. Given his previous roasts, we were expecting worse things coming from the seasoned journalist. Then again, as he said himself, nothing’s free, so that should explain why he was gentle on what fundamentally is Drivetribe’s free car. (
