I think it is Top Gear UK being shot in US since it has the P014. I think all three will get one car each for the comparison.

Aston Martin Vanquish
Lexus LFA (wish it had been the Nurburgring Edition)
Dodge Viper SRT-10

I am sure (and hope) the comparison will be done by Top Gear UK and must have been filmed in the US because the SRT-10 is not available in Europe yet.

Top Gear US is awful mostly because Adam Ferrera and Rutledge both have ZERO passion for cars and know almost nothing about cars and always look like they are reading off a script and are overly rehearsed.

I also hate the smirk always on the face of Rutledge. Only saving grace is Tanner Foust, but he is not enough to make the show great.

Yeah, it reminds me of exactly two years ago when they shot the season premier slated for debut after Christmas in New York.

They used the 458 Italia, SLS AMG and Porsche GT3 RS as the three cars and it was the first episode aired after Christmas.

Looks like they are doing the samething again with different cars.

Default Top Gear + Jeremy Clarkson + LFA + Vegas + Mexico = ?

Whoooaaaa, can't wait!

Yesterday, the guys from Top Gear descended on Las Vegas in a haze of burnt rubber, cigarettes, and lengthy, complicated metaphors.

But where, oh where, could they be going and what exactly are they driving? We have some of the answers.

Jeremy posted a picture on Twitter earlier that revealed the guys are driving some seriously cool cars.

It appears that James is in an Aston Martin Vanquish, Jeremy is in the Lexus LFA, and Richard, muscle car lover that he is, will be in a brand new Dodge Viper.

Rumor has it that this will be a 3,000 mile journey and Jeremy has made mention of both Southern California and Mexico in the last few weeks.

Now that Jeremy Clarkson has declared LFA as his most favorite exotic supercar, I hope that stays during the taping of the show.

I hope a lot of emphasis is around the track.

Nice picture.

Looks like they are shooting in various states all over the US.
