Tiff Needell Tests Some Amazing 90s Sportscars, Shows He Can Outrun Them On Foot

Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past.


If you're a gearhead of a certain age — late 20s, early 30s, let's say — you probably love to wax nostalgic about the great sports cars of the 1990s. Whether you owned one, lusted after one, or had to settle for just hooning one in the first Gran Turismo, there was probably some car you thought was really special back then.

In this great Top Gear clip from 1998, former race car driver and full-time awesome guy Tiff Needell takes a crack at some of the best from that era: the Corvette, the NSX, the 911 and the Skyline GT-R.


Tiff also shows us just how fast he is outside of a car. About 55 seconds in we see him running in front of the cars, talking into the camera while the wind blows through his hair. We always knew Tiff was a talented guy, and know we know he has superhuman speed as well!

Of the four in this video, which one would you take and why?

No FD RX-7? Tiff, I am disappoint. Automatic transmission on the C5? Bringing a knife to a bazooka fight.
