  1. Don’t know how I missed the launch of the Toyota GR Yaris. it looks right up our street! Anyone driven one or know someone who’s driven one? In this age of electric new stuff I thought this was great as an alternative before we all become obsolete :tearsofjoy:
     
  2. It looks a fun little car and seems quite popular. I still think 36k seems expensive for it though.

  3. a real rally homolagtion throw back..shares virtually nothing with a standard yaris,forged engine,ball bearing turbo,carbon roof,4wd.You need to spec the track pack though, which adds the diffs,for another 3K.I still dont think it will be as capable as the revised Civic type R,which really is a complete package for the same money.If you can get passed it looks,its all round ability is hard to beat..

  4. Buah! Here in Spain it make crazy to all the fuelwaster! I had seen a lot of test and must to say it looks like the last chrono-braker on hillclims or B-roads. Better than a Lan-Evo or cars like that. And have to add, the price for an Evo in my country is untouchable, at least for a worker like me. For the same price of a second hand Lan-Evo, you have a GR Yaris NEW! The fun must be sure.

  5. That you driving manu:wink:
     
  6. Loving that video - Thankyou M :grinning:
    Driven very well. That first corner shows it well - nice balance. sounds good too.
     
  7. Not me, I wish to have those hands and feet, but the reality is other!:grin::grin:
     
  8. It's got rave reviews but it's not for me. I think it looks best in black

    They sound crap and the interior is pretty poor. And it's a yaris. I just couldn't justify explaining to someone what it is

  9. compromises have to be made to keep its cost down even to the level its at.Everything is bespoke,so you can guarentee they have lost money on every one.Its only come about,so it can be homologated to rally,which it looks like wont happen now anyhow!..But in doing this,it has brought a hell of a lot of publicity to Toyota,while boosting its stock in the hot hatch sector,which was non existant before.
     
  10. colleague just bought one, awaiting end lockdown to join on hoon, sure look like lot fun
     
  11. Well, sounds like a mower, the cabin is noisy and the driver position would be good. Is only a Yaris? So? Doesn´t mean it can´t be funny or effective. Agree with you in some parts, maybe is a car for a little circle of driver. Can´t imagine going on holidays with a family, but I think it have many other atractives. I would´t mind to have one in the parking, well, if the fucking pandemic ends sometime...
     
  12. Can imagine spare parts are going expensive if everything is bespoke, maybe not just servicing parts but other part like suspension components, transmission, etc
    not just a Yaris but a toyota :openmouth:
     
  13. I am just interested to see the residuals.

    Hope the make enough to push the second hand values down. A nice 50% value after 3 years be good.
     
  14. Got my attention for sure. Tempted.
     
  15. A few pre rev at £38k.

    Or Dec if you want to order.

    38k is alot of money, is there a bubble to be burst?

    Alot of people with money to burn due to covid. More people richer than poorer at the mo.
     
  16. found this also..i have never been so busy,but all clients with bags of cash
     
  17. Harrys garage just done review in yaris. Loves it.

    He mentions that you Hogan only get either of the oacjs but not both, Said the type of people buying would be happy to pay the extra for bith packs.

    Also menyioned that Toyota may extend production run over original 25k planned. Be mad not to. The are a business after all. Not like its a clio Williams after all.....
     
  18. ...9 out of 10 will go for the track pack with the LSD`s for sure.
     
  19. What else Andrew? We are natural born sinner or not? :tonguewink::tonguewink:
    Yesterday I saw one parked, took a look and must to say I like it. Is smaller than I expected but like more in person. The cabin is good to me too. Personally, don´t like a dashboard with thousand buttons and lights like a carnaval. Need to test one soon!!
