Top Gear has become a world-wide phenomenon over the years, and the U.S. isn't the only country that has a local spin-off on the way. Australia boasts one million Top Gear viewers, and show producers are hoping their locally produced version of the iconic BBC show translates into just as many fans.

Top Gear Australia is gearing up for its inaugural show next Monday, and judging from the promo clip after the jump, it looks like the blokes down under have some interesting ideas to keep us entertained. How about driving an aqua car into shark-invested waters? Sounds like fun. Australia picked three car-loving guys from Down Under to host the show, and from the clips we've seen so far, it looks like they have some chemistry. We're looking forward to seeing the finished product, but for a taste of what is to come, hit the jump. Thanks for the tip, Andrew!
