Top Gear USA filming in Iceland.

Top Gear USA is filming in Iceland. What I've heard is that they've rented these old american gas-guzzler rigs and Arctic Trucks are supporting them in 7 Toyotas. I haven't heard any details on where they're going or how long they-l be here.

Lucky them, we're having a good blizzard now, which has the Reykjavík metro area almost paralyzed. Should make for good footage.

No, but we are in America. Well, half the country is in America, the rest is in Europe.

Looked like Taylor in the chevy and I heard a locker bark in the Scout at the end of the video...I'm betting Rut's rig.

Scout wins, my prediction.

Who cares. TopGear UK is still way better. I can't even watch the guys on the US one.

They need TopGear Pakistan where Ehsan builds a new car each week.

The US version will never be as good as the UK version but it's getting better. Fawking whiners on this forum. Can't just enjoy a car show where they fuck shit up? They do less of that star in a small car crap and do more challenges than the UK version. I like it.

I just wish they would let them be themselves rather then clones of Top Gear UK.


It comes off so god damn cheap and fake when they force the script on what TP.UK did last year onto them.

It's sad really. It could be something special.

I watched 1 episode. I found all three of them to be completely annoying douchebags. Yes, I frequent Pirate GCC, so it's not like I'm trying that hard to keep annoying douchebags out of my life, but they weren't even funny

First season sucked. 2nd and 3rd season was much better. Just google season 3 to watch the newer stuff.

The challenges aren't always a ripoff of the UK version. The UK version is on season 19. They have done damn near everything there is to do in that little island.

Looks like a regular 79 bronco to me.

Looked like Tanner in the bronco, Adam in the truck and Rut in the scout.

Tell me what the best episode is, and I'll watch that one.

If I just pick one at random, and it's mediocre, I'll probably become agitated and irritable or something.

looked too long to me. Hard to tell. Camera shook so much, I thought I was having a seizure.

Hard to say, I liked the off road episodes the best. The minivan challenge was good as was the alaska and vegas off road challenges.

wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Top_Gear_(U.S.)_episodes

None of them top the UK episode from last week with the old people's car. That shit was hilarious.

You also have to remember that the modern Top gear UK started in 2002 with an older version that went from 1977-2001 while top gear USA started in 2010. So top gear uk has an 8 year head start on top gear usa.
