The DNA in "Top Gear’s" destroyed Toyota Hilux lives on.
There’s been a legend about Toyotas running around for quite some time stating that the Japanese workhorses are past the line of indestructibility. It’s easy to credit the old "Top Gear" crew for starting these rumors after Jeremy Clarkson spent a good deal of time, money, and ingenuity on trying to destroy a Toyota Hilux to no avail. In reality, the myth spread through word of mouth. It began with strangers seeing half dead Toyotas, such as this Corolla spotted in Pakistan, still going strong.
This particular example is in such bad shape that we question how it’s still running. But as the video plainly shows, there's no stopping it.
