The guys of "Top Gear" (Tue., 9 p.m. ET on History) were tasked with selecting a high-end convertible for a celebrity buyer, only they weren't told who the buyer was. So they picked their cars and then had to try their best to convince Donald Trump to buy their choice.
Rutledge Wood had a Lamborghini, and emphasized the exclusivity of the model he'd chosen. "Less than 200 made a year," he lauded.
Tanner Faust's pitch sounded like he was trying to sell Trump on a race car. "This is a driver's car. It's the quickest out of the bunch. Zero to sixty in 2.7 seconds." But is that what would matter to a guy like Donald Trump? He doesn't seem like a guy focused on speed.
The most practical car of the bunch came from Adam Ferrara, who offered up a Bentley Continental GTC. And Ferrara had a sales pitch that sounded like he'd been selling cars for years. "This car combines luxury, prestige with a racing heritage," he said.
Ferrara even included details like mentioning the high clearance of the car, "so you won't be scraping anywhere." For this reason, and because of his own 6'3" frame and wanting to be comfortable, Trump fired both Faust and Wood.
"Bentley, you're hired!" he told Ferrara.
The US edition of "Top Gear" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on History.
