We first caught Top Gear USA shooting Hyundais in California. Now they've been spotted in Georgia filming a Dodge Viper trying to outrun a Cobra... attack helicopter. Maybe there's hope for Top Gear USA after all. Photos and video below.

In our exclusive interview with the show's executive producer he told us the "action film" segments from the British Top Gear will be a big part of the made-in-the-USA version. That explains whyTop Gear USA was spotted in Georgia filming at the Griffin Spalding County Airport yesterday with hosts Tanner Foust, Rutledge Wood, two Vipers and a Cobra attack helicopter.


The video and photos from Drew over at the MX5Atlanta forum clearly show Foust and Rutledge racing around the track at high speed as the AH-1 Cobra gunship attempts to keep up with them. No clue who wins here, but notice what's in the background of the last shot.

**Spoiler Alert** It's a Dodge Viper ACR.
