Top Gear is a show designed for car buffs everywhere. There are three guys that drive, torture, modify, and talk cars the entire show. The guys are usually given a car to drive over a long distance; most of the time with modifications. Sometimes the modifications are easy like beefing up the suspension to make the cars go over all kinds of rough terrain, but sometimes they have to do things like make cars waterproof so they can float. Vehicles are transformed into submarines, all terrain monsters, and road warriors. The three drivers compete against each other. The drivers and a special driver called the "Stig" race vehicles on a special track designed for serious vehicles. Each visitor to the show also drives a particular vehicle on the same track to compete for best time.
