In Tuesday night’s Top Gear on History, Rutledge Wood, Adam Ferrara and Tanner Foust will decide which car from the 1980s is the best through a variety of entertainingly unscientific challenges.
Many insurance companies consider a car over 25 years old to be a classic, but can a car from the 1980’s really be the kind of investment that a typical classic car can be? Rutledge, Adam and Tanner each choose their favorite 80’s car and compete in a series of challenges to see which is the best, and seek final judgment from a mystery 80’s celebrity. The person who chooses the best 80s car gets to test drive the fastest Ferrari currently on the roads – the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. – BBC Worldwide
