    Some Pics from the Top Gear USA set








    Also reported: the reasonably priced car will be a Kia Rio and the first two celebrities to get a run in it will be Howie Mandel and Scary Spice.

    I wonder if they're going to have a stig...

    Re: Some Pics from the Top Gear USA set

    Are they going to copy everything from the original or what? They really have no imagination.

    Why change a successful formula?
    I don't see a problem with them copying it - of course they'll need to tweak some things because the British'ism won't translate to an American audience (i.e. slamming American muscle cars for being all braun, no refinements - cheeky humor/dry wit, etc. etc.)

    Re: Some Pics from the Top Gear USA set

    jeje, im not sure bit i think some of the magic in the british series will be lost...IMO

    Re: Some Pics from the Top Gear USA set

    A drag strip is NOT the American Top Gear test track....this is!

    Re: Some Pics from the Top Gear USA set

    I believe the original producers have no say in the US Top Gear, and they are not happy with it. The Australian Top Gear on the other hand is fully produced by the same team. They have learned from the American mistake.

    Re: Some Pics from the Top Gear USA set

    What Top Gear UK makes is the talented and extremly entertaining team of moderators. That's not to beat! And a copy will never reach it!

    Re: Some Pics from the Top Gear USA set

    if a formula works... why change it?

    I think American Idol was fairly successful

    Re: Some Pics from the Top Gear USA set

    If this show is as bad as "supercars uncovered" and other SPEED CHANNEL TV shows... then I imagine most current USA top gear fans will stick with the UK version.

    The US interpretation of a UK show rarely goes well at least in my opinion.

    Andy Wilman (the producer of TG UK) is also the producer of the American version.

    Re: Some Pics from the Top Gear USA set

    Yes but he said that he has no say in the format over there? That is what I read...

    He was in the studio during the filming of the pilot. More info here:

    Re: Some Pics from the Top Gear USA set

    I still think this show will crash and burn but if it is successful then good for them.

    Otherwise they will have more success just airing the UK version on BBC USA or something like this.
