About the car

The Tuners Group is very proud to announce that we have been appointed by Works Bell in Japan to find a new home and owner for Toshiki Yoshioka's legendary AE86 drift car.

For sale is Yoshioka's car, which he has campaigned with enormous success and with which he won the Las Vegas round of Formula D in 2008 - where he stunned the US drifting community with the mindblowing speed of his AE86 at a circuit which many have described as the fastest track on the entire Formula D calendar.

This car is without doubt one of the most developed, most advanced, and most successful AE86's on the planet.

Note about bodyshell:

The bodyshell of this car started it's life as an AE85 bodyshell.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_Levin_AE85 reads ...

"The Toyota Levin AE85 was a vehicle produced from 1983 to 1991. AE85 designates the trim-level and generation of the vehicle in question. A=the engine type, E=Corolla body, 8=eighth generation, 5=trim level ... AE85 is the SR5 or SR version of both the Levin/Trueno/Corolla".

The AE85 and AE86 have an identical outward appearance, so it is very common in Japan for racing teams to buy AE85's, then convert them to AE86 spec for racing.

Yoshioka's car has been converted from an AE85 shell to AE86 specs, and WAY beyond the specs of an AE86.

Spares Package

This car will be sold with the following spares included at no extra cost ...

We have been advised that some of the Rays Engineering wheels in the spares package are usable and some may be unusable due to damage sustained in use. An authorised Rays Engineering repair centre will need to advise you on this point. We will update this page with photos of the wheels as soon as they are available.

Comments from Adam Richardson, Managing Director of The Tuners Group

Adam Richardson, Managing Director of The Tuners Group said about The Tuners Group's appointment by Works Bell to find a buyer for Yoshioka's AE86 ...


"We are immensely pleased to have been chosen by Works Bell to find a new home for Yoshioka's AE86.

The Tuners Group has earned a rock solid reputation for the very finest parts available, outstanding customer service, and a unique understanding of the kinds of parts and service that hard core racing customers need and want.

There's only way to earn the kind of reputation we have - by meeting and then exceeding our customers' expectations on service, quality and price - day after day.

The fact that Works Bell has chosen The Tuners Group to find a new home for this unique vehicle further cements our reputation in the drifting and racing communities.

The car is undoubtedly one of the finest competition examples of the AE86 on the planet, and the level of development that has been done on it is mindblowing.

For any team anywhere in the world with the right driver looking to make a huge impact in their local drift series, Yoshioka's AE86 is potentially the perfect package to do that in.

It is an extremely exciting car that has generated enormous interest both from spectators and the racing media ... and everyone knows the effect that having a proven winning car that generates spectator and media attention can potentially have in helping attract sponsors.

Yoshioka's AE86 has already proven it's capabilities in both D1 GP and by winning the Las Vegas round of Formula D, so it is a proven, truly world class winning vehicle."


Want to own Yoshioka's AE86 ?

The sale of Yoshioka's AE86 is an extremely rare opportunity to purchase a proven winning car which destroyed the competion at the 2008 Las Vegas round of Formula D.

It is an opportunity to purchase a highly developed competition car, built from the very finest parts from companies like Prime Garage, HKS, Toda, TRD, Tomei, JUN Automotive, Advan, ARC, Nardi, ORC, Eastbear, Rays Engineering, ATS, Droo-P, Vertex, Recaro, Takata, Kei Office and Works Bell ... and developed by some of the very best engineers in the business.

Obviously it fast-tracks years of development which you would otherwise have to do if you tried to build an equivalent car from scratch.

Most importantly, it is an opportunity to purchase a car which you can roll onto the grid of any drift series in the world and potentially be immediately competitive, if not a potential championship winner.

No expense has been spared in building this car.

We are advised that Team Droo-P spent roughly Japanese Yen 8,000,000 on building this car.

The amounts above are what it cost to build, not the asking price for the sale of the car. The asking price for the sale of the car is WAY below the build cost.

Yoshioka's AE86 including the spare parts package is for sale at a price of Japanese Yen 3,500,000.

The sale price of the car is less than half of what it cost Team Droo-P to build this incredible vehicle.

The asking price represent outstanding value, and is WAY below what it would cost to try to build a car with equivalent specs from scratch.

The car and spares package is currently located in Japan and shipping can be arranged to any country worldwide. The asking price does not include delivery or local taxes.

As it says above in the comments by Adam Richardson, Managing Director of The Tuners Group ...
