Top Gear USA: Cool Cars for Grownups

The boys of Top Gear USA are investigating is it possible to have a car that combines the practicality of a family car and the sportiness of a sportscar. To find out, they went to Colorado to find out the best high-performance family car. Adam drives an Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Estate with its 5.5L Twin Turbo V8 engine while Tanner drives a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and Rut's gone nuts with...some kind of a Honda minivan tuned by Bisimoto Engineering. They have to undergo some challenges and in the end, they'll race at the Pikes Peak Hillclimb.

The first challenge involves practicality and acceleration. They have to quickly load some stuff at the back, accelerate to 120mph, and stop. Fastest time wins. At the end of the first challenge, the man in the station wagon is the winner.

The second is the spare tire challenge, whoever's the fastest to replace theirs with a spare tire is the winner and it's a challenging one until Rut in the van wins the challenge.

Next, it's a race against a Corvette Z06 driven by The Stig at a raceway. Whoever's the closest next to The Stig's lap time by two laps is the winner. Who's closest from The Stig's is Tanner's.

With all boys won each challenge, they all battle against each other in the race at Pikes Peak, one of the most treacherous hill climbs in the world. The boys will gave it all they've got to conquer Pikes Peak and survive until the winner is named.

In the end, Tanner wins, Adam placed 2nd, and Rut in the van is last.
