Default Top gear (original) filming ... the Tail of the Dragon and VIR

Top Gear spotted in North Carolina [UPDATE]

by Jeff Glucker (RSS feed) on Sep 16th 2010 at 11:01AM

Top Gear is here in the United States. No, not the Top Gear USA team of Tanner Foust, Adam Ferrara and Rutledge Wood but the blokes from the BBC. Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond have been spotted driving a trio of excellent exotics in the Blue Ridge section of North Carolina.

If you happen to live in the area, be on the lookout for a Ferrari 458 Italia, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. We imagine they'll be running three wide, engines roaring and cameras rolling. But... North Carolina?

UPDATE: Autoblog reader Jim spotted the Top Gear crew at VIR and snapped a few shots. We're guessing Hammond in the GT3 RS, Clarkson in the SLS and Captain Slow in the 458.
If only they knew about The Snake out of Shady Valley, TN ...

Clarkson: "Why have they never sold mustangs here?"
May: "Well, because they're rubbish"
