In 1992, the UK car TV show pinnacle was still Top Gear. However, it came in a slightly different guise as it does in the modern day. The standard of drifting supercars and high-octane action brought in by the Clarkson, Hammond and May era was not on the agenda. Instead, a younger Clarkson, Tiff Needell and Quentin Wilson, among others, would lean more toward the consumer advice side of things, which is no bad thing.
However, on the other side of the world, the Japanese car scene was booming and their TV shows were more than a match for the UK. Much more in line with the modern Top Gear, Japan’s show ‘Best Motoring’ was taking the best supercars in the world and properly putting them through their paces on mountain roads, or a ‘touge.’ This clip is a perfect example of just how crazy their line-ups could be.
