If you're not familiar with Best Motoring, your life is probably shit and I'm sorry for you. For nearly 25 years, the Japanese video magazine gave us track day shootouts of some of the best and most ridiculous cars on the road, a kind of real-life Gran Turismo.
OG drifter Tsuchiya-san is a quote factory, and his best work was when Best Motoring put him and a C6 Corvette on the touge.
Okay, so I can't understand any of this Best Motoring comparo between two of the three great kei car sports cars of the 1990s, but that doesn't mean I don't like watching it.
The iron in this race is worth far more than I make in a week. Craziness.
The fastest ever Best Motoring battle. Let's see how the R35 Godzilla does on its first appearance.
A new 911 brings a new superbattle. And this time it's C2 vs C2S vs 911 Turbo with some Japanese and Italian stalwarts thrown in for good measure.
Whatcha got for us today, Best Motoring? A battle between the 997 Carrera S, the coveted E46 M3 CSL, the V10 M5, a Nismo-tuned Skyline R-34, and a Lamborghini Gallardo? Okay, fine.
So many car. Such power. Very speed. Best motoring.
It's the Lexus IS-F, BMW M3, Mercedes C63 AMG, and an Infiniti G35 this time on Best Motoring. Which is fastest? Hint: It isn't the Infiniti.
The best car for the track day lover on a budget is a car that works on both the road and the track. But which is the best?
This is the Porsche 911 special of Best Motoring. So naturally they include a GT-R, NSX, and Evo. Of course.
Seven laps of Tsukuba. Can the GT-R win?
Audi S8. Porsche Panamera Turbo. Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. Porsche Panamera S. All of these sedans have the outrageous performance to back up their price tags, but which one is number one at the track?
As we welcome a new Lamborghini into our lives, we bid farewell to the venerable old Lamborghini Gallardo. This Best Motoring track battle seems appropriate then.
A world without the McLaren F1 would be a sad place. Good thing we live in a world with a McLaren F1.
The NSX is one of the best sports cars to ever come from Japan. But what happens when it takes on cars that are classes ahead?
Best Motoring. I don't know how you jokers got your hands on the cars you did, but you're the envy of every gasoline-loving person on the planet.
I've always said Gran Turismo and Best Motoring are the same thing. This is proof.
Why yes, the F355 might be my favorite Ferrari. How did you know?!
If I have one criticism of Best Motoring, it's that it tends to be very heavy on cars from its home country. Sure, I love seeing my favorite JDM cars get whipped around Tsukuba Circuit or wherever (usually Tsukuba Circuit, honestly) but it's fun to mix it up from time to time too.
