Who doesn't love an R35 GT-R? Ok, well, let me take that back because according to Instagram posts, there's a large number of people that can't stand it due to a lack of a manual option and, according to the social media experts, "It's just a computer on wheels." For the rest of that enjoy modern technology, fast cars, and gut-wrenching acceleration, the new-age GT-R is just what the doctor ordered, and we're not alone in that as Jeremy Clarkson and the Top Gear boys are fans as well.
One of our favorite episodes (Series 11, episode 4) involves the TG crew heading to Japan where Clarkson jumps behind the wheel of a bright red R35 while Mays and Hammond stumble their way through the country via Bullet Train. Being foreigners dealing with mass transit and a rather stiff language barrier, the antics you've come to expect from this group aren't left on the cutting room floor.
Traveling surface streets and absolutely blasting over highways through Japan, Clarkson comes up with a rather ingenious way to avoid dealing with speed traps by using a masterful disguise. Say what you will, but there's not a single toll road paying reader that wouldn't like an easy way out of that daily payment.
So entertaining was the episode that Top Gear actually produced a rare two-part series, both of which can be found on the MotorTrend app now, along with a complete library of classic Top Gear episodes from start to finish. In addition, you'll get the full run of content, including extras like the Top Gear U.K. India special, three seasons of Top Gear: Extra Gear, multiple MotorTrend "Best of Top Gear" compilation programs, Richard Hammond's Crash Course, James Mays' Cars of the People and so much more. This is your chance to get on board with the original Top Gear, catch up on anything you might have missed, or just binge your favorite automotive content for hours on end.
