    They haven’t got a market as such

    It’s for homologation purposes for the WRC - they will sell what they need to to fit the criteria

    TBH they will sell their quota easily imho

    Not even being released in the USA so they must be pretty confident they will sell the required amount.

    I’ll take a bet with you know Toyota GB will sell every one of these they can get their hands on and demand will outstrip supply

    What a great car that will be to drive

    Not like all the bloated fat pedal mashers that cram up the car showrooms..

    Buy it , drive it and have the best fun you could possibly have behind the wheel

    Then sell it and lose minimal cash

    I think a lot of people will judge the car on the surface for being a Yaris, but if you look into the specs it's a real Frankenstein - love it.


    Here's a peek at the prototype WRC in testing:

    If that drives as good as it looks, they’ll sell loads (especially in black)
    Nice to see proper cars being made

    We personally know 5 people that have pre ordered these. Think they will be a riot to drive and its nice to see a car being made and not influenced by the bean counters.

    Those stats are ridiculous!

    Same power as an 8P Audi S3 (which was quick enough), but weighing only 1280kg whilst packing AWD! And dual LSDs! :blink:

    In stock trim this would give an E46 M3 a hard time without doubt.

    Proper pocket rocket :cool:

    I think it’s great and I bet it will be great to drive. Nice to see a manufacturer building a car for drivers that is not an SUV!

    You can add me to that list too Imran. I feel it will be a good garage buddy with my GP3.
