In a recent interview focusing mainly on how he admits he would be a "rubbish" Prime Minister, Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson revealed some details about what promises to be a highlight of the upcoming 11th season of Top Gear. We've known that there is supposed to be a big race in Japan, but we weren't exactly sure what mode of transportation would be pitted against the car until now.
Yes, Jezza spilled the beans, revealing that a Japanese bullet train will be the competition. But what new supercar in the land of the rising sun could possibly give a high-speed bullet train a genuine challenge? The previous seasons' races featured the likes of the Aston Martin DB9, Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, McLaren Mercedes SLR, and the Bugatti Veyron. So unless Lexus tossed over the keys to a pre-production prototype of the LF-A, we're thinking the Nissan GT-R will be representing. No word on which wins, (not that we'd want to have it spoiled for us) but we're rooting for Godzilla.
