As with any new road-going car trying to make some headway and generate some buzz, the Bowler Nemesis EXR found its way into the clutches of Top Gear. And since the show’s hosts are the ever free-wheeling and daredevil folks that they are - actually, it was just Richard Hammond - they decided to give the Nemesis EXR a proper introduction into the world of crazy test drives.
Taking its cue as a road-version of the Bowler Nemesis racing machine, Hammond decided to find out how the the production version was going to handle being chased by the ever-clicking, and seemingly determined lenses of the paparazzi. Through a number of courses - tarmac, dirt road, and beach - Hammond ran the Nemesis EXR with only one goal in mind: reach the finish line without a paparazzi snapping up a clear high-resolution picture.
The competition was no less formidable for the Nemesis EXR, which included a Jaguar XKR, a Robinson R44 lightweight helicopter, two motor bikes, a Jackal military vehicle, and a hovercraft. In the end - despite Hammond’s lack of driving skills - the Nemesis was able to prevail over the paparazzi, an achievement in itself for Bowler’s road-going monster masterpiece.
