An actor and comedian you might recognize from ''RescueMe'', Adam is described by Rutledge as a "typical New Yorker": brash, loud, and rude. Of the three presenters of the US version, he's the only one who isn't a gearhead by profession, but he's no slouch when it comes to automotive knowledge or appreciation. His taste in cars is largely ruled by aesthetics -- when he can, he likes to go ''big''. Infamous for breaking cars during challenges. His comedy skills get a hefty workout in the show.

A professional racecar driver, Tanner has 3 X-Games gold medals and the world indoor speed record. By far the most skilled driver of the three presenters, Tanner is often the man to beat in challenges. Adam and Rutledge consider him a pain to be around; the fact that Tanner likes to show off to taunt them doesn't help that image. Tanner tends to prefer cars he's familiar with (and thus knows the exact limits of), but failing that will typically go for the closest thing to a supercar he can find.
