Can you please tell us about so that we can keep an eye out for it and not end up missing it??

Is it one the three I listed above?? You said "soon" so it can't be "TopGear USA" since the season 2 does not premiere till fall of 2011. Will it be a single test or a comparo/battle??

Yeah I'd like to know so I can set a DVR or something. I'm not always at home so I don't want to miss this. Even if you warn us at a later time, it'd be great to know as you can still hold it back till a week or so before it's appearance.

Far from it, and I'd prefer the LFA go somewhere it's appreciated, not looked down on because it came from Japan.
They are popular and entertaining because they are jerks that talk craps. If they tell it like it is, that would be boring consumer report.

On the contrary I'm sure they quite like what they do. Love the show, even since it was just a simple auto review, 0 shenanigans type deal. Wouldn't be as popular as it is now if they hadn't changed their format.

I wish they had used a metallic blue or red color. I have "Battle of the supercars" on my DVR with the yellow LFA and even in 1080i high-def, it does not look nearly as striking as blue or red.

Too bad, the TopGear USA episode will not air till next fall when the second season begins.

Scott Pruett tweeted about him watching LFA at Infineon raceway for TopGear USA taping. American Stig will also be running a hotlap.

Too bad it won't air till November or December of 2011 since the season 2 does not start till late fall.

Yeah that sucks, maybe we'll get some type of preview on youtube? Filming this early means a good amount of episodes.

Our buddies at VIP Auto Salon ust posted a new time lapse video of how they wrapped #032 in yellow vinyl. The process took 18 grueling hours from start to finish. All the hard work paid off in time for the Top Gear USA episode filmed at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma!

Check it out:
