The Stig makes his return to Top Gear USA on the History Channel tonight, though it looks like the circumstances could be better. The upside is that Rutledge Wood, Adam Ferrara and Tanner Foust appear to have built themselves a Road-Warrior-iffic late-1990s Toyota Camry complete with an electric fence. The Stig chases down his prey with, naturally, a Panther. Seems appropriate.

Looking more closely, it almost seems like a Camry body was bolted atop a truck frame, and you'd expect something like a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor to be the most menacing Panther, but the Stig does a good job being scary in a Lincoln Town Car. The only way to know for sure what went down is to watch tonight. Scroll down to check out a clip, and hit the gallery for some shots you'll only find on Autoblog.

      This show had the potential of being great if it weren't for the terrible writers that do the completely uninspired scripts, the forced amusement they're trying to create and maybe different presenters would have changed things. America has so many great people yet they're choices are pretty poor.

        Agreed.. What could be a great show is ruined by unnatural lines, execution, and situations.. The BBC Top Gear never fell for those tactics.. Which is why it's so great. Top Gear USA is as bad as any other reality show we have here. Which I'm both ashamed of, and proud to say I don't watch.

      God almighty will they please cancel this garbage already. A 14 yr old boy, a fat old hipster and a Guido and almost no actual cars. I think they had 2 decent episodes ever.

          I'm not. Just giving it a better name so people don't compare it. It's a half assed attempt to copy and that is why people compare it.

      You know you have a terrible show when people stop stealing it. History Channel, make it history.

      While I used to love the TGUK crew, the fact is last season and this one blow...they're old, predictable and in need of new blood. TGUSA is not great or really good but it at least has some relatively fresh people who are not 60 year old men in jeans. Still wish we could get a show where they do review of damn fun cars. Guess that's too much to hope for.

        Agree that TGUK has jumped the shark. At this point they're just repeating variations of the same few bits, and the hosts can't even be bothered not to look and act bored. TGUS has stripped away most of the elements of the UK version, and is now just an excuse for three guys to insult each other for an hour while doing only vaguely auto related activities. Given that two of the hosts have ties to racing, they could do a legitimately car focused show, but have chosen to do a rather lazy 'reality' show instead.
