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.

Yeah, the racing stripe in the bonnet of the car makes it quite aggressive. Hmm. Is it true that they are planning for a facelift version for the vehicle?

This sports utility vehicle has an impressive figure performance. And I guess that’s the reason why the Top Gear has featured this truck in their show. For a heavy vehicle like this its power output is kind of impressive.

ha ha . I do hope there’s a video for that one! I want to see how the paparazzi try to get a snapshot on Hammond driving the Nemesis! But its a good thing that Hammond reach his goal. That’s so much fun.

hey, why did they put this video here? The razzis might actually get an idea from this and get their own EXR. That would certainly defeat the purpose of this vid.

Well, that’s really showing those annoying paparazzi. Studios should really recommend this cars to their actors and actresses for the same purpose

Would anyone like to wager whats going on in the picture above? I see premium luxury cars, a fat guy in boxers, what looks to be a pretty desolate landscape, and a shovel.

It’s not BBC 5, it’s Channel 5, owned by a totally different company. Anyways, in short, 5th gear was essentially set up to try and emulate top gear after they (the presenters) got kicked off of TG.

While I agree it is expensive and a lot of it might be due to the badge, you are still getting a lot for your money. The Ford Raptor is one amazing machine, but the Bowlers are made in a totally different league. These cars are way over engineered to go to speeds and take damages that are just absurd to think about. Watch some videos on YouTube of the Bowler vehicles. There is one cool one of Richard Hammond driving the Nemesis telling you cool facts of how the vehicle is almost indestructible.

base price of 190,000!? are you kidding me! i could have just as much fun in an old bronco or jeep without spending a quarter of what that thing costs. but if it felt like dropping serious cash I’d much rather have a Hennessy which is way more bad and still costs less.

If you consider yourself one of the 350 million fans of Top Gear, then the segment on 60 Minutes featuring the show was tantamount to cant-miss television.

He was actually called the Friday before the tournament to come back and work for GM.

I must admit that I was amazed with the Nemesis’s performance way far more better than xkr, I guess this is the most perfect suv ever build.

agree, this is an all around vehicle, Off road, Tarmac you name it... this baby is one nimble SUV.

wow that was cool, most paparazzi was smoked by the bowler, amazing does it? the transmission box si perfectly design to transfer the tremendous power to the wheels.

wow, what a lovely suv, I would like to see the nemesis taken out the Hamman Cayenne someday. I wonder who is the best on these category.

well I’m impressed you don’t need a race track to prove its performance on racing..

bowler looks menacing, even the sounds seems to be scary to play with but for sure this baby is a lot more fun to drive than the XKR.

This looks like a midget Range Rover. I’m guessing it has the same front and back lights, with the Jaguar engine. Probably the US army should use this vehicle in some scenarios to replace the ultra-heavy HUMMER.

On the video side, I loved the speedometer accelerating with the hand brake on! Very professional TopGear! loool
