Preview Top Gear USA: American Supercars

The cast of Top Gear USA are three of the sweetest guys you’ll ever meet, despite the fact that they get to drive some of the coolest cars in the world.  In tonight’s episode, their challenge was to choose the best of the American Supercars.   The winner got to try out the Mercedes SLS AMG Black.  Tune in to History Channel at 9pm EDT to see Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood and The Stig with the 2003 Saleen S7, 2013 Lucra LC470, and the 2011 Rossion Q1.  We’ll be live-tweeting the episode too so follow us @mylifeatspeed and use #TopGear to join our conversation with the cast.

Can American Supercars compete against their better-known European Rivals such as Lamborghini and Ferrari?  The hosts they take their favorite American supercars on a road trip from Beverly Hills into the Californian desert for an America versus Europe supercar showdown.  The winner gets to put a brand new European muscle car – the $300,000 622 horsepower Mercedes SLS AMG black – to the test. – BBC Worldwide
