Friday fun for the gearheads and Fast & Furious fans: the American version of Top Gear managed to get some Downtown streets closed off so that it could go a little nuts with a Porsche 911 GT2 RS. AutoWeek explains host Tanner Foust "was unimpressed after the obligatory airstrip testing in the desert heat, so he moves the evaluation to LA under the cover -- and cool weather -- of darkness. Thankfully, the cops closed some streets down for him to do his thing, which includes a drag race between the Porsche, an SRT Viper and a classic Chevy Nova." The Downtown stuff starts around 4:13.
