History channel eyeing 'Top Gear'

Network in talks to bring U.K. automotive hit to the U.S.

"Top Gear" may finally be coming to the United States.

The History channel is in talks to bring the U.K. automotive hit Stateside.

NBC came close to doing a Stateside version back in 2008 starring Adam Carolla, then shied away after "Knight Rider" crashed. NBC also tried a variation on a popular "Top Gear" segment on "The Jay Leno Show" where the talk show host's guests would race hybrid cars around a custom-built track.

No hosts are yet signed for the potential History version.
