    This is great. As well as the review being broadcast on my birthday in 1993, this video plays on my ancient Apple Cube with OS9! Excellent. Thank you

    good review in my opinion.
    Tiff seemed to cover the main aspects of the Supra, althought in my experience the gearbox from one Supra to another feels very different.
    He decribes a 'spongy' feel to it, which I did notice on one Supra I drove.... but where as my own UK spec has a nice direct feel to it.
    Shame there was no track or 'spirited' drive shown on the clip and the neons were not really required I thought but overall I liked it.... good video.

    A disappointing review to say the least. In the hands of the Stig, we would have seen the Supra's true abilities and even though Jeremy would have shat all over it, the Hamster would have given it proper kudos. A shame they let such a sally do the review. Even Rob Sheffield drives more spirited.

    Good find to all involved, when it was mentioned in other threads I was wondering if it would ever turn up.

    Now that it has turned up im a bit disappointed that theres not any crazy screaching-tyres-round-a-track-action but glad ive finally seen it!

    Nice one

    Although Top Gear is mostly panto these days thank god for them because that car would've been shown to it's true potential.

    I can't believe the differences in car journalism from then to now.

    Perhaps that's why Top Gear has been criticised so much for their hunger for speed, they are only showing the cars skills accurately.

    The issue is that in 1993 that was the format of car shows. Occasionally they'd let Tiff loose on a track but usually in a 911. I remember him doing Oulton Park in an NSX with the tc off!

    With the traction control off it still holds the road?????

    obviously he didn't push it much.

    Good vid though did remind me how bad the light washers look!
