With the first season of Top Gear USA nearing its small screen debut, the History Channel - which has picked up the show - has released a sneak peak into one of the films featuring the finest thoroughbreds from the Lamborghini stable.


While the production values are certainly top notch, the crux of the Top Gear franchise has always been the chemistry between the hosts - in this case Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust and Rutledge Wood.

The line-up shows promise, mixing the comedic talent of Ferrara, the drifting talent of Foust and the chubby, bearded face of Wood - but one thing these spin-offs will always lack is Clarkson.

Can a Top Gear franchise succeed without Clarkson?
