Full Throttle (also known as Top Speed) is a one-player racing arcade game made by Taito in 1987. It is very similar in style to the Out Run games in that it features a fast, red car hurtling through the U.S. countryside.

Trivia

  • The car featured is a red Mazda RX7.
  • Director Hiroyuki Sakou went on to create Taito's Operation Thunderbolt a year later.
  • This game is Taito's response to Sega's Out Run.
  • This game was the forerunner of the Taito Z system on which Taito's driving games were based from 1988-91.
  • Some of the billboards in Full Throttle/Top Speed are plugs for other Taito games such as Operation Wolf and Plump Pop
  • One of the billboards in Full Throttle/Top Speed features two detectives who are obvious references to Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs from Miami Vice. Ironically enough, Taito released Chase H.Q. which featured Miami Vice-esque detectives.
