Top Gear drives a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale, SRT Viper and McLaren 12C Spider

Last night was the first episode of Top Gear USA. While the US version of the famed automotive show isn’t quite the same as the British version, it has become a more entertaining show than the earlier episodes. On last night’s episode the guys each chose supercars to drive from New York City, New York to Venice Beach, California.

The choice cars were the SRT Viper, Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale and the McLaren 12C Spider. Those sound about right for a nice cross country road trip.

Typical to the Top Gear show formula along the way Tanner Foust, Adam Ferrara and Rutledge Wood have to engage in a series of challenges. At the end of it all the looser has to pay a price for not coming in one of the top two spots.

If you missed last night’s episode head over to http://www.history.com/shows/top-gear/videos/top-gear-coast-to-coast in order to watch the full episode. The video is free to watch this week and then I believe it will be locked for those that don’t have access to History through their TV provider.

So, check out the video and then come back here and let us know what you think of this season’s Top Gear USA in the comments.
