    Man that car is intense. There is no word I can think of to describe it
    I'm afraid this is a signature, a very pathetic one.

    I saw this at Goodwood a few years back. I would guess that the 0-60 could even be under 3 seconds. It outpaced most of the cars there around the first corner, except the Tacoma was doing it sideways.

    It could be just for aerodynamic reasons that they restyled the whole thing.

    In any case, you can call it anything if you really wanted to.

    You just have to have a good imagination!

    I bet you that doesn't share any of its parts whatsoever with the Tacoma.

    It's not a rally car.
    It's a hill-climb car.

    No idea why, but it reminds me so much of the Toyota GT1.

    It is a purpose built mid engine hill climber. The only thing shared with a tacoma is the name

    I have watched Rod Millen race this up Pikes Peak twice. map It was fast! I believe he still holds the record for the fastest time. Just over 10 minutes. It was in a Toyota Celica though.

    You can drive to the top of Pikes Peak year around. You've really got to have some guts to race up it. There are numerous spots where the drop off the side is several hundred feet. I have 6 2MB videos. Could someone tell me where to host them?

    I figured out how to upload them here. 2 of the videos are the Celica and 4 are the the Tacoma.
