Hi All,

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.

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

The specs list is completely mindblowing.

No expense has been spared in building this car - we are advised that Team Droo-P spent roughly 8,000,000 Japanese Yen on building this car. That amount spent to build the car is approximately US $87,000 / Euro 68,000 / Sterling £61,400 / UAE Dirhams 320,000 / Australian $134,000 on today's exchange rate !

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

US$87,000 is 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.

As we definitely want this car to go to a good home, we'd definitely appreciate people's help in getting the word out about this car, so if you are a member of any drift forums or AE86 forums, feel free to repost this post.

I'd love to see it end up in Australia. We contacted all our Drift Australia customers today, so if one of them wants it, we could potentially see it in Australia this year :)

If anyone here knows any guys running drift teams, let them know it's on the market - I'd hate for any team who might want it to not hear about it and miss out on the chance to own it.

As you can imagine, an iconic car like Yoshioka's AE86 being on the market is a very rare thing, and given the price there will no doubt be a number of drift teams around the world wanting to buy it.

News of the sale has been picked up on a number of forums all over the world - the sale page on our website got absolutely hammered today.

PRICE DROP IN SOME CURRENCIES DUE TO CHANGES IN JAPANESE YEN EXCHANGE RATE

Hi All,

As we noted when Yoshioka's AE86 and the extensive spares package was put on the market, the Japanese Yen was very strong, particularly against the Australian dollar and a number of other currencies.

The price in Japanese Yen of JPY 3,500,000 is still the same, but due to recent changes in the Japanese Yen exchange rate, the price of the car in Australian Dollars and a number of other currencies is now much lower ...

When the car was put on the market, the price of JPY 3,500,000 was equivalent to Australian $59,500.

On today's exchange rate, the price of JPY 3,500,000 for the car and extensive spares package is now equivalent to Australian $45,477.

Compared to the price when this car was first put on the market, this is a saving in Australian Dollar equivalent terms of more than AU$14,000 (a saving of roughly 23.5%)

Due to the changes in exchange rates of various currencies compared to the Japanese Yen, as at exchange rates on 16 June 2009, the Japanese price equivalent in:

- Australian Dollars has dropped from AU$59,500 to AU$45,477 (a saving of approx AU$14,000 or approx 23.5%)
- US Dollars has dropped from US$38,000 to US$36,263 (a saving of approx US$1,737)
- Euro has dropped from Euro 30,150 to Euro 26,155 (a saving of approx Euro 3,995)
- English Sterling £ has dropped from English Sterling £26,700 to English Sterling £22,106 (a saving of approx £ 4,594)
- UAE Dirhams has dropped from UAE Dirhams 139,885 to UAE Dirhams 133,155 (a saving of approx UAE Dirhams 6,730).

We are advised that Team Droo-P spent roughly Japanese Yen 8,000,000 on building this car. The asking price of Japanese Yen 3,500,000 is less than half this amount.
