Toyota Sprinter Trueno – Black Limited Edition Replica

This, pictured above, example of the elite edition of Hachi Roku is actually a replica of the original Black Limited Edition. Based on a left hand drive AE85, it packs all the vital features of the original Black Limited and is located in Puerto Rico.Originally the car was red in color and was powered by a 4AC engine which was later replaced with a Black Top 4AGE. A real effort took place in finding and collecting the original cosmetic Black Edition trim and interior bits, which were all patiently sourced from Japan.

It is a nice piece of nostalgia, a time capsule, featuring some of the really cool features and gadgetry that were put into automobiles of the 80s. Needless to say, the owner did put a formidable effort into steering away from all the mutilating modifications that many aging AE86s and other JDM cars go through, unfortunately.
