Toyota Sprinter Trueno (AE86) GT Apex - 1:43 Scale Diecast Model Car
The very definition of a "next-generation" classic, the Toyota AE86 Corolla has become one of the most coveted Japanese collector cars in the world. Thanks to its lightweight, rear-wheel-drive platform and high-revving 16-valve 4A-GE engine (not to mention the halo effect of the Initial D manga series) the AE86 has become the weapon of choice for countless drift racers and track-day heroes, making unmolested originals rarer than the proverbial hen's teeth. Just as tough to find (in the U.S. at least) are Kyosho's 1:43-scale diecast replicas of the AE86 Sprinter Trueno, but we at Model Citizen have secured a small handful of these exquisite little "Hachiroku" Toyotas. Kyosho's attention to detail is readily apparent, as the JDM-spec AE86 features flawlessly rendered road wheels and trim pieces; the car even features a delicately printed rear-window defogger.
SPECIFICATIONS: 1:43 scale (approximately four inches in length). Diecast metal body, no opening parts. Comes with acrylic dust cover and display base.
PERFECT FOR: JDM enthusiasts. Readers of Japanese Nostalgic Car. 1:43-scale collectors who demand a higher level of detail.
