Sharknose X7.

Up for sale in Japan at the moment - and great for someone who is looking for a little more excitement in their 1980's Toyota's..

A 1988 GX71 Toyota Mark II. A 2litre, twin-turbo 1GGTE-powered version of the 5th generation MarkII/Cresta/Cressida/Chaser - *X7*.
This one has then been modified with, most obviously, a classic shark-nose front. Add the aero, flares, wide wheels, and those graphics over purple paint; and it would look out of place in any other country!

What looks to be the usual Hakosuka wing..

Flares over wide SSR MK1's.

The always-necessary boot outlet..! borrowed from an early (1984-6) AW11 Toyota MR2.

Pretty damn wild in here too!
5speed, little wooden wheel, and one of the strangest trim's i've seen! the seats look to be wearing covers, while the full door has been retrimmed. The dash gets a matching cover, complete with tassles...
Loving the lack of headrests in the front seats too. looks so much more relaxed. whiplash be damned!

Bit of fun.
