The FR layout of the car is rally awesome with the Real Wheel Drive but I think the seat is not enough for the family pack. It is good for some racing sport events for the players. 3croroe 75 lakh yen is still the high price but you can get it if you have some addiction with the cars.What are the color varieties if the cars given?

Well sports cars are not designed for families, that's for sure. Judging by the looks of that car I think I would be willing for once to loose my selfish side and have it. Of course, I don't think I can afford it now but I am glad Subaru is involved in this project, I am now keeping contact with Subaru Philadelphia to get myself a nice car.

I have always liked the vehicles made by Toyota, they have their own uniqueness and quality, but this idea is mind blowing, who would have thought that you can make a sports car a hybrid sports car, and still the car has Turbocharged 2000cc engine which will give you a flying experience, i have Used trucks for sale which is i am about to sale and get some good new car as i got a beautiful job which pays me a good salary :) Thanks for the detailed specification really appreciate your hard work :)

Wow,What a beutiful cars.The bumpers and fenders are bigger and squared off. FT-86 G's concept is 30mm longer, 50mm wider and 30mm lower than the base FT-86 Concept model and sits on different .Its looking awesome.
