According to the Twitter musings of one Jeremy Clarkson, the Top Gear UK crew is back in the States for another harebrained adventure, this time in a trio of comely supercars. Judging by some grainy Twitter pics, Clarkson is in Las Vegas with Richard Hammond and James May, set to drive cross-country in a Lexus LFA, SRT Viper and Aston Martin Vanquish.

The ever-wry Clarkson appears to have just landed, having announced on Twitter less than 24 hours ago: "People of America. We have passed muster at your idiotic border controls, and we are here, ready to play."

In fact, the Top Gear action this time 'round might not be limited solely to the US – on November 7, Clarkson tweeted, "We will be in Mexico next week." Earlier missives suggest a sizable journey – some 3,000 miles. We're guessing the trip will work out to be the longest journey by a media member in the new SRT, and not by a little bit. Who knows, that may even hold true for the Lexus and Aston Martin. Viva Lost Wages, boys.

Details about TG's journey or when the story will air on the BBC are otherwise slim... anyone else have information on where they're headed? Let us know in Comments.

      They should stop off at the Top Gear USA track and record their lap times. :)

      I think that it'll be Clarkson in the Viper, May in the Vanquish, and Hammond in the LFA.

      I'd guess Jeremy is in the Aston, James in the Lexus, and Richard is in the Viper

      I think Clarkson might be driving the Viper... think he has a bit of a soft spot for them. He likes huge brash, crass american supercars with a billion horsepower, run on minced cat, and have no safety ( I know that American supercars have come a long way recently with electronic nannies and safety. Don't get upset) I reckon James would be in the Aston, and Richard would take the LFA being already familiar with it.

      Since the last time they were here testing American cars May had the CTS-V, Hammond had the Challenger, and Clarkson had the ZR1. Then they came over with the high end cars with May in the Ferrari 458, Hammond in the Porsche, and Clarkson in the Merc. So my guess would be May gets the Aston, Hammond gets the Lexus, and Clarkson gets the Viper.

      I hope the cops roll out a spike strip as these tools pass at a 130+ MPH. I'd laugh my butt off if there was a video of a gun shoved up Clarksons nose by a cop.

        Yeah, that'd be awesome! But not as awesome as never seeing as big a douche as yourself on Autoblog ever again!

      Why bother, we all know the Austin will win nothing but the highest accolades while the Japenese will be boring and the American car will be nothing but bad.

      Any Top Gear in USA episodes are the best.
