The National Corvette Museum welcomed a special visitor today. Rutledge Wood, co-host of Top Gear USA on the History Channel and a reporter for SPEED TV made a personal video to the NCM and toured the exhibits. During the visit, Corvette Assembly Plant Manager Dave Tatman brought over a new Velocity Yellow 2014 Corvette Stingray and we were told that Wood was “blown away” by the new C7.

Tanner, Adam and Rutledge are back tonight as Top Gear USA looks to do a take on Top Gear UK’s famous Limousine Challenge. The three hosts will be building their own limos: a 1981 VW Rabbit pickup, a 1969 Lincoln Continental, and a 1987 Chevrolet Corvette. So what’s the challenge, you ask? Transporting as yet unnamed celebrities to the Emmy Awards Show.
As we mentioned over the weekend, the Corvette ZR1 was featured on Top Gear USA Sunday evening that culminated with the Americanized version of the Stig taking the supercharged 638-horsepower sports car on a lap attack of TG USA’s test track. How does the Corvette stack up against the competition? Hit the jump and check it out.
All right Corvette fans, time to set your DVRs. Top Gear USA just kicked off its second season last week and in Sunday’s episode, Tanner and Adam get to drive two automotive legends: A Corvette ZR1 and a Ferrari 458. The duo decides to have a race to establish supremacy and the Stig shows up in dramatic fashion as Round Two is decided on the Top Gear test track.
