We Imported 3 TERRIBLE Sports Cars From Around The World (& Ruined Them IMMEDIATELY) | Car Trek S7E1

  • Published on May 29, 2022 veröffentlicht
  • We DARE YOU to find better import cars than we did on AutoTempest!►bit.ly/CarTrek7_1
    Thanks to AutoTempest.com for sponsoring this series!
    On the first episode of Car Trek Series 7, AutoTempest challenges the guys to find the best imported cars they could get their hands on. Since they'd have to be at least 25 years old to qualify for importation, the guys would have to choose cars from the greatest decade - the '90s. Tyler brought a heavily modified BMW E30 325i hot rod from Lebanon, Freddy lets his JDM freak flag fly with an inappropriate Mazda RX-7, and Ed outdoes himself and shows up in the most offensive TVR Cerbera ever made. They are then told to meet at the Freedom Factory for a race. Hell yeah, brother.

      @Sky Valley Hoovie said the VIN on the firewall is still there, it's just all of the other VINs are missing, that's why he could import it. Had all of the VINs been removed, the car couldn't have been legally imported.

      @Sky Valley It's a complete mystery. I'm struggling to figure out how to bring in a 2009 car in perfect condition, and these guys are bringing in wrecks with scratched off VINS without problems. HOW??

      Besides tyler's car it's probably the only thing there making stock (or more) horsepower lol. I'm guessing that the Mazda is kinda unhealthy and the TVR definitely is.

    Ed's not joking - that TVR was the absolutely the most famous cars in the early 2000 UK car culture. "Max Power" (popular UK tuner magazine) had it as one of their 'poster' cars, literally. Being a teenager at the time everyone had a poster of this car on their wall. Crazy that you guys actually got it!

    Tavarish's car has art from the anime franchise "Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha". The 2 characters are on the hood of the car are Takamachi Nanoha and her former adversary and now best friend Fate Testarossa. Fate Testarossa also adorns the car's doors, driver gauges, and rear view mirror.

    "I always got the impression that TVR built a car, put it on sale, and THEN found out how it handled. Usually when one of their customers wrote to the factory complaining about how dead he was."
    - Jeremy Clarkson, paraphrased from memory

      My memory of TVRs is they were designed with no regard for that fact that people needed to fit inside and drive the thing. So, customers self selected by whether they could fit.

      @Chris Rogers i asume you are refencing him sliding it through the corners? the max he was doing around that corner had to have been 40, cause my vic understeers like hell past 50, and him "peeling out" was the effect of an open differential, with all of the weight on one tire. CVPI owner confirms, that vic is stock

      Same here. Tyler and Freddy should have purchased something you couldn't get here. A Japanese Kei (interesting with high gas prices), Lancia Delta, Peugeot 306 GT, Escort Cosworth, ,Alfa GTV, Lotus Carlton, Lotus Elise S1, Nissan Skyline, and countless other cars.

      Trevor 10 months ago +10

      I think he was more surprised that Tyler would hit him, Cleet is no stranger to bumping people around in a race he also respects a cool build. I'm sure him and his crew were all about a v8 swapped e30 even if it isn't an LS and while not perfect it's definitely the cleanest build this season...

    Is it just me or is the chemistry between these three evolving similarly to how the second series of Top Gear went with Clarkson, Hammond and May? Can't wait to see where this goes from here.

      True dat, no show will ever be like it, mostly because people these days are way too sensitive and easily offended and louder about it than they used to be. I guess it's the nostalgia talking.

      We have to stop comparing car shows to top gear. No show will ever be like it, not even TGT. But every show can be fun in its own way

    Fun fact: the TVR Cerbera's Speed Eight engine was the sound used for the BMW M3 GTR in 2005's _Need for Speed: Most Wanted._

      @Luke doherty Nope. Fact check yourself

    • GearheadLydia
      GearheadLydia 10 months ago +3

      @Luke doherty I highly doubt that. The GIN files in the SOUNDS directory contain a grain table for granular audio synthesis that can be decoded into a complete sound recording, which was clearly created by recording a car on a dyno if you listen to it.

    • Luke doherty
      Luke doherty 10 months ago +1

      Nope. Was made via computer no real car sounds

    • GearheadLydia

      @MIKEK3NT No, the real BMW M3 GTR of that generation sounds more like a race-prepped V8 Ferrari. Still a flat-plane crank V8, but a very different character to the sound.

    • Marten van der Meer
      Marten van der Meer 10 months ago +6

      That had to include the sounds of it breaking down after the first race in the game, right?
      You can't run a TVR that long before something has to give.

    I love how Ed didn't even try his usual financial gymnastics to justify his car. Usually there's an answer as to why he hasn't actually spent the amount he has actually spent, but even Ed can't talk his way out of that one. And yes, that TVR is almost certainly plotting how to murder it's current owner, because it's a TVR and they are the vehicular equivalent of an axe-murderer.

    • MyRegardsToTheDodo
      MyRegardsToTheDodo 10 months ago

      @Mu4dD1b15 I am pretty sure Tavarish already showed that hentai mobile once on his channel a few months ago. Didn't he trade it for something? Don't actually remember.
      Oh, and the TVR is crap already, the BMW was the only car that could actually keep up in a race, until it broke down. But I am with you, there were so many great choices they could have picked from, but they all went for shit cars.

    • Mu4dD1b15
      Mu4dD1b15 10 months ago +1

      @MyRegardsToTheDodo That's even more of a reason why Ed wins this already. No budget and they chose an E30 and an FD.

    • Klaus K
      Klaus K 10 months ago

      Regarding the TVR, it has the bizarre, unpredictable, homicidal potential of any redhead.
      Which, of course, makes it a phallus magnet. For crazy people with death wishes willing to explore weird fetishes.
      But poor Hoovie. When I heard that box of rocks sound, I was pretty sure that his gearbox had exploded. Six speed transmissions from techno-addicted great-grandchild cars are too progressive for an e30. Or at least that one.

    • Defensivebeast

      What I’m more looking forward to seeing is the TVR being fixed and possibly restored after this season of Car Trek. It would be great to see this thing with everything working.

    The TVR was built by Carisma, it was a bit much when it was built initially. Carisma also built the silver Renault 5 turbo in the first Ali G move. You’re right though that TVR was quite famous. Max Power magazine was quite cool though it was Fast and Furious before fast and furious.

    I can appreciate all the things it must take to make this series but honestly I can’t help but feel slightly disappointed that no time was invested to simply maintain the vehicles so they could be the best they can be. If I wanted to watch broken down cars for an hour I’d just look outside in my own parking lot 😂😂. Good job guys though

  • Sledneck1080

    I love TVR they do everything different from anybody and there slogan for safety is “just don’t crash” I heard that people would leave notes on the cars for the next workers on shift and can still be found in a lot of the cars today

    The e30 with the 5/7 series v8 and a 6 speed is very commonly done overseas and they are mostly used for what we in the us call a sideshow but less organized and they are amazing to drive

    My friend has a TVR Cerbera and it's definitely one of the most fun cars i have ever driven. Ofcourse it had a working and spiced engine, but other than that the problems on Ed's car sounds fairly familiar :D :D

    Used to own a e30 325. Granted i spent alot of cash on it after i bought it but i loved that car and it gave me no problems ever. It was fun to drive and pretty fast for just having about 200hp.

    I'm a little disappointed that the TVR is in such a sad shape. I hope that Tyler gets his hot rod BMW 3 series fixed. This is a great episode as usual. Please keep up the great work. Thank you.
