First Trailer of U.S. 'Top Gear' Released


A $1,000 Cadillac attempts to travel through a hard-terrain Moonshine course while a Viper challenges a Cobra.

A trailer for the U.S. version of "Top Gear" was played during History's presentation at the Television Critics Association tour on Friday, August 6. This is an adaptation of the successful BBC series where a secret race driver will test vehicles and celebrities will be invited for interviews and to drive vehicles around a test track.

In the American version, comedian Adam Ferrara, professional racing driver Tanner Foust and roving racing analyst Rutledge Wood are the hosts. Apart from Foust, Ferrara and Wood are actually not the original line-up when NBC picked up the show and shot the pilot for Fall 2009 line-up. Adam Carolla was in Ferrara's position while Eric Strommer was in Wood's.

NBC canceled it before it went to air, mainly because it doesn't want to take the risk due to the failure of "Knight Rider" remake. However, it was announced earlier this year that the show is revived with some changes including the move to Discovery. The new home, however, has not announced when the show would be aired.

    I'll watch the first few episodes, but I don't think it will work out. In this case, it is the way the cast fit together so perfectly, and the British "flavor" that makes Top Gear so good. Its like trying to make an American version of Monty Python's Flying Circus. ...You just can't.

    This is going to be utter crap. It had potential with Adam Carolla. The entire entertainment industry needs to try and do sightly fewer drugs.

    I can see it gaining an audience here. I love the BBC show. BUT...Get Tanner Foust out of the mix...he's even worse as a TV host than he is as a driver...

    This show may have worked with Adam Carolla, but with these guys? No way, already sucks just watching the preview.

    Adam Ferrara is actually pretty hilarious. (The guy driving in the car)They should've shoved pudgy in the car for this trailer and have Adam and Tanner joke around to build interest instead. I've listened to Tanner outside of over-scripted Speed channel shows (Like Adam Carolla's carcast) and he's definitely a good choice. Should be great comedy with those two. Unfortunately the pudgy dude is just annoying. I saw a few clips on youtube where he pops in on Nascar shows and he is just...so bad....

    Horrible, this version lacks all of the things that make the original Top Gear so great.

    terrible.. they should have kept adam corolla (i know, he turned it down). this is just awful, it was apparent within 10 seconds that this will fail miserably.
