First look at The Car Show – Click above for high-res image gallery
No, we don't have any video yet of the pilot episode for Adam Carolla's The Car Show, which we announced yesterday has just been picked up by SPEED for a 13-episode run. But what we do have are the first still images from the pilot episode, which give a quick glimpse into what may become America's real Top Gear competitor.
What we can see are the show's hosts, which include Adam Carolla, Pulitzer Prize-winning auto scribe Dan Neil, former NBA star John Salley and Matt Farah of The Smoking Tire, in various states of taping and posing around cars. The three images show a wide variety of vehicles, including obvious supercars like the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and Chevy Corvette ZR1, but also odder additions like a Volt, DeLorean, Toyota Camry and what we think is a Ferrari 308 or 328. We can also see some of the set where they'll be taping the in-studio segments, as well as the outdoor arena where they'll be testing cars.
As we mentioned yesterday, don't get too attached to the show's current name, The Car Show, despite its presence on a monitor in one of these images. Chances are it'll be changed by the time the show airs. That is, unless the show's producers can convince The Consumer Automotive Repair Show to give it up.
