Top Gear USA runs with the bulls – Click above to see the video after the jump

While everyone and their mother seems to have made Top Gear USA bashing the new national pastime, you might want to take a look at the newest video tease it's just released. While the appeal of the BBC show undoubtedly revolves around the chemistry between its three mismatched hosts, at its core, it's a show about cars. So even if we're not certain the three American hosts can live up to the legacy established by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, perhaps they really don't need to.

Top Gear USA isn't a replacement for the BBC show after all – it's more of a spin-off. And as long as the production values stay high – and from the looks of it, they have – it's just more car pr0n for all of us. Case in point: the video you'll see after the jump. The storyline is fairly straightforward: Round up the baddest Lamborghinis from the corral – Superleggera, Balboni and SuperVeloce – and open them up so we can see what they'll do. Can there possibly be a loser? Maybe the matador. Follow the jump to see the Top Gear USA guys on their run with the bulls. Thanks to everyone for the tips!

      I never liked the idea of TGUSA. After watching this video, I am convinced it will be awesome. Not on par with TG(BBC) but a great American car show for sure.

      Isn't is illegal to do donuts in dirt in a SuperVeloce? I am just thinking about the paint getting all chewed up.

      I just think it will be neat if the interview the hosts of Top Gear US on Top Gear and the other way around!

      I hate to see a Lambo treated like it is a Jeep or something. The original Top Gear hosts use much better comparisons when describing cars (such as Keira Knightley's body parts). "Feels crisp" doesn't cut it... will I watch the show?

      Of course, what else am I going to watch... %95 of shows on now are crap! Kardashians, 3 or 4 shows about cake makers, and fake reality shows on TruTV... hopefully after a few episodes the Top Gear US crew will get the chemistry going.

      Wow, two of the three hosts really bug me. The fat guy is useless, I could care less what it thinks about cars.

      Tanner Foust has the charisma of a tree stump, I can't stand that little guy.

      I think these three guys collectively come in at about 9 feet tall. Wish they would have found three unknowns who are not off-putting jerks to host this mess.

      I have a shiny new penny that says it's going to suck hard while trying too hard. No thanks.

      I had 'sighs' in brackets before the tirade. I may have just programmed something inadvertently. interwebtard FTW.

      I can't wait to watch it, looks really promising so far. Wish Matt Farah were one of the hosts though.

      I'm actually less excited about the show then I was before. James, Jeremy, and Richard have character and personalities; they say funny and outrageous things... this segment was just blah. I know, don't judge a book by its cover, but daaaaaaamn.

      I'm really quite tired of Top Gear posts. it's just a car review show right? like car and driver? so why does this site post so much info about the hosts, and the production, and the times it comes on, and the cars they review etc... seems in general overhyped.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yet, here you are... POSTING.

      So the general consensus seems to be:

      Keep the hosts, find better cars?


      *ducks*

        LOL!

        I think they could keep the hosts, provided pre-production involves alcohol and illegal stimulants. I find people who've been drinking or doing drugs to be a bit more interesting than these walking sleeping pills.
