Spied: Top Gear America Filming for History Channel on Mulholland Highway

Yes, that is Tanner Faust you see in the photo above. He's on camera talking about the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, and if you browse through our other photos off to the right, you'll see that the gray Hyundai in question is wearing a rear license plate with the Top Gear logo on it. That's right, filming has begun and we had a camera handy to make a few passes through the set.

We're not sure what all will be included in the show, but among the new-ish cars are the aforementioned Hyundai, a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, a supercharged Audi A6, a V6 Mustang, and a Porsche 911 C4S cabrio, which oddly enough was wearing the Top Gear plates but wasn't the current facelifted version of the 997. We certainly got some funny looks from the crew as we passed through with a camera, but that might have also been because of our chariot, the not-yet-released Jaguar XJ. In any event, go ahead and look for yourselves in our gallery, and head to our forums to speculate about what they might be up to for the first episode.
