toyota 86 - downunder pricing announced

somewhat unbelievably, Toyota are launching the 86 here at a price even cheaper than they originally hinted at! Starting at a few bucks under $30k (plus onroad costs?) you can get into the new 86 base model.

Hopefully subaru will price the brz very similarly...? I've actually been wondering whether the 86/brz might be a good buy. I loved the gen5 prelude i used to own, and also still rave about my old gdb wrx. a new brz, in blue... could be the way to go forward!

teh gtr can nevar lose!

the R32 gtr is getting on past 20 years old nowadays, but its reputation as one of the world's best cars is well deserved. this one lapped tsukuba in just 57.874! proper track tyres on dished TE37s, solid aero additions and no doubt a little more power adds up to real racing cred. here in australia, you can get a standard R32 GTR for under $15,000 - a lot for a 20 year old car, but dirt cheap for a racing legend.

yep - that'll stop OK

so there's your boosted ride - big turbo(s), engine management, a motec system exhaust and "nos...lots of nos..."

but how you going to stop that thing? Big brakes are the business, and this is the boss. Behind the scenes - big wheel tubs behind those flared arches too.
