Gordon Ramsay's LaFerrari Spider Confession On Top Gear Was Totally Staged

Probably.

The revamped Top Gear starring Chris Evans, Matt LeBlanc, and Sabine Schmitz (for one segment only) has finally debuted. Reviews, well, they’re mixed. Our own Jared Rosenholtz has written a full review which you can check out here. But there was one part of the episode that really caught our attention, and not in a good way. During the interview segment with Jesse Eisenberg and Gordon Ramsay, the latter showed Evans a box that he just so happened to conveniently have with him under his seat.

Because he’s already the owner of a LaFerrari, Ramsay was invited to spend an additional few million on the open-roof Spider version. Thing is, we already knew this was happening as far back as early March. Ferrari CEO Sergio Marchionne pretty much admitted to Automobile Magazine last month that a LaFerrari Spider was on its way. Ramsay essentially confirmed on television a two month-old bit of news but Evans made it out to be "the first proof on TV, radio, or in a magazine this car exists." Not true, and that whole bit of dialogue sounded like it was staged. Just saying.
