Press Release Edit
"In this season of 'Top Gear,' Tanner Foust, Adam Ferrara and Rutledge Wood pull out all the stops exploring all things automobile, and taking on challenges that have never been done before. Whether it’s being the first people to photo map the legendary Rubicon Trail, or the first Americans to legally drag race in Cuba in a half century, they push the boundaries of what can be done on four wheels. They’ll also attempt to build the perfect postal delivery vehicle, train in war games with the U.S. Army, and compete in a grueling 24 hour endurance race. Tanner, Adam and Rutledge, along with The Stig, criss-cross the world from Sweden to Cuba, from the Rocky Mountains to the Mojave Desert, driving some of the most cutting edge vehicles the automotive industry has to offer, including the Koenigsegg One:1, the Tesla model S P90D, and the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR, in the most original and ground-breaking season of 'Top Gear' yet."
