Top Gear USA has officially returned. That much we can say after Kilometer Magazine caught what appears to be the show doing a taped segment at LA’s infamous Mulholland drive a few days ago.
KM was also able to snap a few photos of the set including a rather dapper-looking Tanner Foust standing in front of a camera while a Hyundai Genesis Coupe sits idly at his side. Could it be that Mr. Faust is doing a review of the Genesis Coupe? We don’t really know, but it sure looks like it.

In any event, we’re equal parts geeked up and anxious for the show to make its debut on the Discovery Channel. Whether they can replicate the success the original Top Gear has enjoyed for 15 seasons remains to be seen. The verdict on that is still subject to how the initial episodes go over to the car-loving segment of America.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

But the top gear has already made a review on the genesis before right? So how come they’ll make another review out of it?

Nice car from hyundai. I think that would be a nice place to film a shoot, very clean surroundings with a fresh air.

what a lovely piece of machine, i must admit that it is way better than the Hyundai Coupe and the Tiburon GT. I bet the Nissan Zed User will get jealous with it’s aggressive looks, also it’s weight distribution is almost the same as the Nissan Z and GT-R.

Well Hyundai genesis is one of the best drift car available today. Koreans has already learned a lot on their previous Hyundai tiburon and elantra GTs.
