Top Gear Live is a live show by the Top Gear crew, performed on stage at the MPH Auto Show. This is the start of their first world tour, which will visit Dublin, Hong Kong, Sydney and Auckland!
The MPH motor show is basically performance cars. Cars you might see on top Gear. The first car through the door was the beautiful Nissan 2008 GTR (R35 Skyline). That’s pretty much all I needed to see, as I left Japan before it was released and I only saw the base Skyline models.
But I did continue looking and found multiple Porsches, Ferraris, top Speed legens Pagani Zonda and Bugatti Veyron, and a few I’ve only ever seen on episodes of Top Gear like the awesome Atom and KTM.
We then went into the Top Gear Live show, along with 4000 other people! And crowded the stands. They put on quite a show, with multiple cars doing doughies around the stage, precision driving maneuvers, car football and all the other usual antics from the show. Jeremy Clarkson really is twice the size of Hammond. It has all the antics of the TV show, and of course a finale with THE STIG!
Random clip from YouTube showing some of the show, I didn’t film this!
