Top Gear USA Brings Taxied-Up Supercars to Cars and Coffee

We don't have much longer to wait for Top Gear USA's first on-air episode this Sunday, November 21. Apparently the production crew's pretty excited as well, having brought a fleet of some rather extraordinary taxi cabs to a weekly Cars and Coffee gathering in Irvine, Calfiornia.

All vinyl-wrapped with yellow livery, the fleet of Top Gear taxis arrived early Saturday morning at the former home of Ford's PAG headquarters. Diehard Crown Vic fans may have been disappointed, but those who prefer cars with slightly more performance potential certainly weren't. The taxi fleet included a Ferrari 458 Italia, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Porsche 911, Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR, Lamborghini Murcielago, and a customized Chevrolet Camaro "Firebreather." We didn't spot a single member of Top Gear USA's on-air trio, consisting of Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood, or Adam Ferrara, but plenty of production members were on-hand to chat about the show as well as the cars.

We'll be watching this weekend as Top Gear USA hits the airwaves for the first time, but in the meanwhile, which of these Top Gear taxi cabs would you most like to hail?
