Some of us have been wildly anticipating the moment the long-awaited U.S. version of Top Gear makes its debut on The History Channel – and that hour is now closer than ever! The first trailer for the show is online, with hosts Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood, and Adam Ferrara.
As you can tell by the trailer (available below), the show looks to be as exciting as the “Top Gear” name implies, bringing cool tests and eccentric challenges (along with some very beautiful videography) to the car fanatic in you. And it looks like the actual show won’t let us down, as the series will include a new challenge as its centerpiece. Here’s the gist on how it works: the three hosts each pick the best $1,000 car and proceed to put it through a punishing “moonshine run” dirt course.
The ride that got the wrath of the course in the preview was Ferrara’s 1976 Cadillac Deville Calais, which handles dirt landings as agreeably and effortlessly as you’d imagine… that’s to say – not at all.
What’s (who’s?) still under wraps, however, is the Stig. Who in the world will it be?
Check out the trailer below. We think the show will be a hit, especially given the chemistry and rapport between the three hosts.
