    Is that Tanner from Top Gear? Almost didn't recognize him wearing that oversized hat, urban style

    I think Tanner is exaggerating. And the Germans have their G-class Mercedes with front and rear lockers, so they aren't foreign to off-road machinery.

    Yep. Must have taken all his discipline to keep the tires off the grass. Hope to see it featured in a Top Gear episode, so we'd know the Ford's lap time on the 'Ring. A 600-hp Hennessey Raptor was about 11% off the Aston Martin's time on the top gear test track, which is pretty incredible.

    ^ The Raptor didn't look happy on the course...had to be a handful. Funny to hear the low bark of those huge tires

    Not many.
    I know some car guys in the Nurnberg area. One has a Dodge Ram that runs on propane. He also has a 64 Ranchero and a 56 Ford pickup.
    I've seen a few Nissan and Suzuki pickups, mostly used commercially by gas companies and such.
    The way it was explained to me was pickups are taxed in a big way compared to a passenger car. There's some funky formula based on cab area and bed area. Taxes just too high. That's why everybody runs utility trailers there.

    Haha nice. I would have probably rolled the damn thing.

    And yea I don't think he meant theybsont have trucks in the literal sense just that you're not going to see one every 5 cars at the mall like in the states haha. And the ones they have they're probably less full size behemoths.

    I've been to Germany 3 times in the last few years and I can confirm, zero pickup trucks in the mid or full size categories we see here. Literally none, they must be very rare.

    The pickup truck type vehicles I saw were odd totally utilitarian cross between a van and pickup. Industrial, not recreational.

    Makes you wonder how they get bye. :rolleyes:

    Of course, when your entire country is only 1/3 the size of Texas...

    With unlimited speed limits through much of it. They prefer fast sleek vehicles, not bricks.
