FYI, Jonny Smith said on his podcast that Toyota told him they'd just build more if the car was popular.
yes it will be wrapped in british racing green!!! it will also be doing LOTS of product testing for gtechniq, suntek PPF, Hertz and starline.... this car is going to be something truely special.

FWIW, I would also go for red. A huge number of cars these days seem to be black, white, or a shade of grey.

Just got back from the dealer..... In torn between the pearl white and pearl red ... anyway I'm stuck with the red one now so I'm not sure why I'm pondering it.

Interior is suitably shite. Can't wait to have some extended time with this.

even the brake ducts are actually functional, they funnel through and have ducts to the back of the rotors.... the jap version comes with water injection cooling for the intercooler.

im probably going to loose a fortune on this, again god willing its a keeper so it doesn't matter... :evil: :evil: :evil:

I hate to think how many times I have said that โ€˜itโ€™s a keeperโ€™ only to move it on a year or two later!

im a huge huge huge hot hatch fan they are really wha got me into cars when i was a young lad.... my dad coming home in a r5 GTT blew my mind..... i find them most interesting than any ther genre of car, a hot hatch can do everything we need. i plan to leave this bone stock and just rack up the miles ... then i saw the lichfield nitron suspension kit :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

My plan is to wrap it British racing green ๐Ÿ™ˆ
The film used below is one of the most expensive vinyl films out.. gloss and reflections like wet sanded paintwork.

I don't think you can get it in blue...black , White , pearl white and red.. .... White has been 65% of the ordered UK cars. Dealer tells me they are not making more after this and moving onto a hot corolla with the same engine but fwd.

Yes,Black,not Blue

Thought it was a Dark blue the other colour,but its Black

The Pearl white suits it,I just prefer colours.,as white always reminds of when cars only came in White or Black,lol

Mymzte was told the same,re more builds,but according to several online reviews,like Top gear,Johnny Smith off 5th gear,etc they have all mentioned that Toyota might build another limited run if demand is there.

Either way, it should hold its value, as collectors and enthusiasts will be its longterm market possibly.

I'm sure you'll love it.

Unless I'm mistaken, the green one (which does look awesome) also has a small front splitter and extra sill extensions.
