Toyota GR HV SPORTS Can Switch Between Auto And H-Gate Manual Shift At The Press Of A Button

What see here is NOT a Ferrari, although I do find it bearing an uncanny resemblance with one of the Prancing Horse marque’s exotic ride. This is the Toyota GR HV SPORTS Concept Car, a sports car which you can enjoy without bearing all the guilt of tainting the air because, hybrid. Yeah, it is a hybrid car, alright, but while alleviating your Eco-conscious (somewhat…), it still has a good’ol IC for, you know, the oomph. Toyota said the GR HV SPORTS has a design reminiscing that of Toyota Gazoo Racing’s TS050 Hybrid racing (hence, the ‘GR’ in the moniker), but strangely, it looks nothing like the TS050 as far as design is concerned. Unless you count targa top a design similarity, but really, don’t push it. It looks nothing remotely like the TS050. Period.

If Bruce Wayne Ever Went Broke, This Will Probably Be His Crimefighting Ride

Bruce Wayne, AKA Batman, always gets the best gadgets and rides money can buy, and therefore, to think that the billionaire masked crimefighter will use a Toyota Camry as his ride of choice when he go about kicking baddies’ ass is nothing less than absurd. Seriously, Joker will probably die laughing. However, if he ever go broke, who knows he may resort to converting a lacklustre ride into his Batmobile like what this Imgur user did. But, of course, knowing the Bat, he will probably tricked out the drivetrain to maybe include jet engine(s) and the requisite afterburner(s), along with Bat-ish not-so-aero aero kit and a bunch of seemingly just-for-show bits. And how can we forget the Batman’s favorite color, black for the paint job, eh? Continue reading If Bruce Wayne Ever Went Broke, This Will Probably Be His Crimefighting Ride

‘High Performance Derivative’ Of The 2017 Toyota Yaris Looks Kinda Hot!

Toyota Yaris is all youthful and fun, but it is never a ride closely associated with high performance and that’s probably because it isn’t, or at least it never is in most parts of the world that gets this cute little hatch from Toyota. However, in Europe, 2017 Toyota Yaris may not as tame as we believe it to be and rightfully, it shouldn’t be tame at all since it already has developed a race homologation Yaris destined for 2017 World Rally Championships. Sitting in between the super hot Toyota’s WRC contender, the 375 horsepower 2017 Yaris WRC and a regular 106 horsepower Yaris, is a high performance derivative that has 207 horses (210 DIN hp) packed under the hood. Continue reading ‘High Performance Derivative’ Of The 2017 Toyota Yaris Looks Kinda Hot!

You know how some wives are resentful of their husbands’ devotion to cars? Well, it looks like it is going to get worst in future, well, that’s if Toyota has its way. The Japanese automaker’s CALTY Design Research in Newport Beach, California has unveiled a concept ride, known as Concept-i, that’s designed to be emotive. Bestowed with advanced artificial intelligence, this man’s future mistress will learn with the driver “to build a relationship that is meaningful and human.” See? I told you husband and wife relationship is going to get worst, didn’t I? Continue reading In Future, Toyota Wants You To Form A Relationship With Your Car

Scion Sport Crossover Concept Lives On As 2018 Toyota C-HR

Toyota may have pull the plug on Scion, but the intriguing C-HR Concept the now-defunct marque debuted last year continues to live on today as 2018 Toyota C-HR, inheriting much of the Scion’s design. If you ask me, this Coupe High-Rider, as it is also known as, looks a lot less ‘bulkier’ then original concept while retaining the boldness the original. I would say, it is now more ‘earthly’, if you know what I mean. In fact, we thought it looks a lot like the Nissan Juke but only larger, which means it is essentially a sports crossover aimed at the same segment as the Juke. Continue reading Scion Sport Crossover Concept Lives On As 2018 Toyota C-HR

This Restored Toyota Land Cruiser FJ Leaves Us Completely Speechless

When it comes to off-road vehicle, Toyota Land Cruiser FJ is probably the next most iconic and much sought after ride after Land Rover Defender. FJ’s popularity is one to be reckon with and so, it is not surprising that there are shops specializing in restoring this off-road modern classic into its former glory, or some instances, even better than its original form.

Seriously Toyota, This GT86 Shooting Brake Concept Should Be Made

Some critics were wowed by the Toyota and Subaru collaborative car, GT86 aka BRZ, when it first launched in 2012 but from what we gathered, it is not a car serious import petrolheads have in mind, but that’s probably because social media users are a different lot of petrolheads. Nevertheless, it doesn’t stop Toyota from whipping out a concept that turns the already pretty alluring car into one that actually wows and that wow comes from the fact that it is a shooting brake. Yes. A shooting brake. Can you imagine that, a GT86 hatch? Toyota pulled the wrap off of the Toyota GT86 Shooting Brake Concept earlier this month and interestingly, it was said that this car’s design originated in Toyota Australia, but it was hand built in Japan.

Toyota Japan’s Functional Wooden Car Heads To Milan Design Week

If a car made out of cardboard can be functional, wood should work for a car, right? Guess what? As it turns out, wood is exactly what Toyota Setsuna Concept is made out, well, mostly. In a world where technologies are central to automobiles, Toyota Japan begs to differ with the Setsuna concept that aims to reconnect car and driver at the emotional level. We are talking about ‘feelings’ for your automobile, which is pretty heavy stuff. But seriously, how many actually have ‘feelings’ for their rides? Come on, folks, it is a product. It doesn’t communicate, neither does it think (unless its Herbie). That said, I think you probably have more chance of feeling for Continue reading Toyota Japan’s Functional Wooden Car Heads To Milan Design Week
