Top Gear Eisenhower Tunnel

Has anyone seen the Top Gear America were they try to get a top speed through the Eisenhower tunnel with supercars? As if it wasn't cool enough seeing them go that fast through a tunnel i'm sure most of been through, did anyone notice the 2nd gen Xterra that passed them on their way to the tunnel? It was a black or night armor lifted X with a hitch and what appeared to be a roof rack.

Saw the show. Did not notice the X. It's entertaining, but not even close to the BBC original. Just saying...

Saw the episode and the X. Was wondering if it was someone on here. They would certainly remember passing those cars those.

I've seen every BBC episode, and agreed its a million times better.

Just happened to catch a Top Gear America marathon today and noticed the Xterra. Couldn't help but wonder if it was anyone's truck on here.

Exactly three colorful supercars followed by camera trucks.... You might remember that.

Actually, the last season of the UK Top Gear was painful to watch. This season of Top Gear USA is much better.

I love the original, but that last season was really bad.

But then its all better when you watch BBC reruns and see them shoot a Reliant Robin almost to space hahaha! Any episode with Reliant Robin has me rolling on the floor laughing.
