Top Gear Poland - Click above to watch for video after the jump

Of the many criticisms leveled at the U.S. interpretation of Top Gear, perhaps the most stinging is that the show relies on re-baked ideas lifted wholesale from the grand-pappy of all motoring shows, Top Gear UK. That may be true, but it's also a trick that the producers of the show's various ethnicities have been employing for years. What's more, it doesn't look like it will stop any time soon.

A video of Top Gear Poland's latest antics has leaked to the interwebs, and fans of the OG TG will likely recognize the premise.

The show's presenters have been unleashed on an unsuspecting shopping mall in the middle of the night, and the video shows a Peugeot 107, a Chevrolet Spark, a Smart ForTwo and a Toyota iQ zooming around with a Jaguar XKR. One of these things is most certainly not like the other ones.

We're not entirely sure what the premise behind the clip is, considering that the video lacks any of the tire-squealing glory of the infamous Chevrolet Corvette vs. Ford Fiesta battle helmed by Jeremy Clarkson. Still, we've always wanted to wheel around in the display vehicles in the mall, so the clip at least lets us live out that fantasy. Hit the jump to check it for yourself.

      Also, I am not surprised that they have a TG in Poland. Isn't that Jezza's favorite country?

      I hope with all my soul that there will not be a second season of Top Gear America.
        • 3 Years Ago
        Well, I am afraid to have to burst your bubble. Top Gear USA has already been approved for season 2. It is certainly not the original, but through out the season 1 it very much grew on me and I found it entertaining enough to watch. There is still room for improvement, but as far as entertainment factor is concerned, its good enough for me.

      They certainly are milking the Top Gear franchise for all it's worth. I know a lot of the humor probably won't translate, but I'd be kind of interested in English fan-subbed episodes of this.

        There is no Top Gear Poland TV show, just a magazine. This is effectively like C&D doing something for the lulz.

      no właśnie skąd nagle tyle polaczków na autoblog? przecież polaczki podczepiają się pod szwabów określając ich auta jako swoje "nasze audi jest najlepsze" itp. Co więc ten żałosny naród ten robi na amerykańskim blogu? może po raz kolejny chce udowodnić wyższość niemieckiej "naszej" technologii nad "tandetną" amerykańską?

      There is no Top Gear Poland TV show!!!

      This is just a video from a photo shoot for the Top Gear Poland MAGAZINE. Yes, it's pretty boring. Yup, no action - how much action do you expect form a photo shoot?

      I'm pretty sure this has to do with TopGear Poland magazine and not the tv show. This would make more sense that way

      Wait, how long as there been a Top Gear Poland? =
      • 3 Years Ago
      i waited long, but there was really no action at all in the video.....

      so remove topgear from your show name. those topgear XYZ clones are really useless

      No surprise there's not much action, as it wasn't made for tv. It's just a promo movie shot during a photo session for the Polish Top Gear magazine (I mean print version, there's no tv Top Gear series in Poland).

      oo raptem ile Polaków się tu na autoblogu pojawiło.

      co za asy :D

      Ale tak na marginesie to szkoda, że nie ma polskiej wersji TG.
        • 3 Years Ago
        My favourite flavour is sweet and sour!
      • 3 Years Ago
      There is no TV TG series here in Poland. It's just photo session made for polish TG magazine.
      • 3 Years Ago
      We have Top Gear Poland? Didn't know that!
