Best Motoring / Hot Version CANCELLED!?

Just heard from Adam Zillin at 7Tune that one of the most inspiring and brilliant bits of video to come out of Japans tuning scene – Hot Version and Best Motoring – responsible for so many of those amazing Touge Battle showdowns, and mixing up NSX’s, Porsche 911 GT3’s and M3’s around Tskuba – has been cancelled. ‘From what we understand, Hot Version #110 and Best Motoring April 2011 will be the last issues of the series and we are now in the process of putting together an order for 7TUNE readers that want to take a small slice of history before it disappears for good.’

Voice your support here, and we’ll send it over to the guys at 7Tune to add to hopefully a huge list of supporters who don’t want to see this iconic series die.

what a shame, these were some of the few dvds I thought were worth buying, even though I haven’t got a clue what they are saying, but they are so hard to come by that I watched most of them on youtube. Surely they could work something out with advertisers and have an exclusive channel on youtube or something.

I assume if they kill this, it’s probably because they are going to come up with something else. I would be on the support list for keeping it alive, but i’m too curious to not accept change.

Let’s see what they have for us..

Guys, I’m just as shocked as you guys are. These guys were THE institution for drift, Touge, street, circuit… and now like that, they’re gone. I want to put together a group buy for the last versions of HV and BM.

From what they tell me, there are still back issues available along with the last productions to be released.

I can find out which ones, take a list and then do a pre-order for anyone that wants them. Please keep an eye on the 7TUNE pages for more details.

Alan, shoot me a mail – adam@7tune.com ( and anyone else for that matter if you are chasing something in the way of memorabilia )

Our plans included re-starting distribution channels for HV and BM products but now those plans are obviously dead in the water.

Let’s see what the Japanese end of this operation thinks after they read my email with the countless links of sites and fans who are disappointed and shocked by their decision…

why would you cancel something this good??? I can’t believe crappy ass shows like Top Gear doesn’t get cancelled, but Best Motoring does?!?! WTFFFFFF!!!! This show was for the true car enthusiast, the ones that actually gave a shit about how cars performed and are truly car fans. Shows like Top Gear only film cars in dramatic fashion and give you horsepower rating, who the F needs them to tell me the hp ratings of a car! I can look that up myself!
