'Top Gear': Patrick Warburton Named His 1969 Dodge Charger After Angelina Jolie (VIDEO)

Patrick Warburton joined the ranks of men who've offended the sensibilities of their wives and other women on "Top Gear" (Tue., 9 p.m. EST on HIST), when he revealed that he named his muscle car after Angelina Jolie even though it annoys Mrs. Warburton.

So just why is Warburton's prized 1969 Dodge Charger called Angelina? Because it's "dark, sexy, mean [and] sultry," just like Ms. Jolie herself, he joked.

Warburton then revealed that his motor home is also named after a famous actress and sex symbol. "The motor home is named Pammy, after Pam Anderson. Just big, bodacious ... and, also it just kind of irritates the wife so it's funny."

When host Rutledge Wood suggested that maybe he might want to consider naming something after the Mrs. for a change, Warburton demurred, saying it wouldn't be as much fun.

There was some good news for his wife though. When Wood revealed Warburton's lap time for the "Big Star In A Small Car" challenge, it was an impressive 1.41.8 seconds, placing him in poll position above "Torchwood" star Arlene Tur.
