Top Gear: now on American shores! Top Gear USA brings the best of the global hit with a jolting American twist on everything from "Star In A Reasonably Priced Car" to "Power Tests" to those oh-so-terrifyingly fun challenges. Taking advantage of being on US soil - and thus armed with a totally different set of laws, accents, landscapes, and bravado - Top Gear USA will allow audiences to witness even more insane stunts including Adam Ferrara in a $1,000 Cadillac attempting to travel through a Dukes Of Hazzard-esque Moonshine course, and Foust in a Viper versus a Cobra attack helicopter. All in all, it's a balance between a festival of super cars and crazy stunts with total beaters. But most of all, it's some of the best fun you will ever see. And yes! There will be a Stig!
