The Best of Gary Numan 1978–1983 is a double disc compilation album of Gary Numan's singles and selected album tracks released on the Beggars Banquet Records label.[1] The album peaked at #70 on the UK Album Chart,[2] and was promoted by a remixed re-release of Numan's 1979 hit "Cars" ('93 Sprint). Both the original version and the remixed version appear on the album.

The contents of the enclosed twelve page booklet are identical to the one included with the previously released Exhibition compilation album from 1987. It contains various pictures from the years in question and an extensive chronological essay by Francis Drake.
