    Original Speedunters Feature on the build CAR SPOTLIGHT>> DEC HICKS 2010 JZX81 CRESTA - Speedhunters

    Built 3 years ago from a mint original 1991 JZX81 Auto, built to compete in top level European Drifting. Its a rare car in Europe & has thousands of followers throughout the world. The car is still in mint condition, all bodywork undamaged, on its original Toyota Pearl White paintwork. It is rust free throughout. It has seen action in the EDC series for the past three years & has been used for a few trackdays & Time Attack test sessions, its a bloody quick track car!! & has embarrassed many a Time Attack car in its time on track. It has been kept garaged since it build, cosseted & kept in immaculate keep throughout. This is one serious smoke machine.

    The original mint paintwork

    Attentional To Detail

    Yanak Goodies
    Minty mint starting point
    Turbo Side
    Bumper reinforcing kept & Intercooler fitted like a glove


    Built from an immaculate 1991 JZX81, with an amazing fully stitched in Nickson Motorsport Rollcage, with Nascar style doorbars that fit the original doorcards like a glove. Rear cage section allows for 4 x 18's to be fitted in the back through the rear doors. Additional floor bracing from A Pillar in front footwells for side impact protection. The cage is a work of art & was posisbly the most expensive cage build in its time. All the interior trims were kept, trimmed & fitted back into the car around the cages stitching, including the headlinings, pillar trims etc. The interior was kept as this car has always been intended to be kept road legal (in the UK anyway) & useable for driving to & from track etc. Though apart from its first outing to Knockhill its always been trailered to & from events. This car has never been on a diet, nothing is cut away & it still retains air con, electric windows, folding mirrors, boot trims etc. Only the original carpet & rear seats have been deleted for fire safety. However is it a full spec competition car & a very capable one too. It has always been reliable & never failed to get results.

    Currently sporting its original SJS Design Livery & RHDJapan/Universal Turbo's Livery which can be removed. Though I'd assume most people would keep the SJS Design Livery as its helped make it an iconic car. However when it was first built I ran it on the road for a month in plain white with its original bumpers in sleeper mode & it was hilarious.

    R154 Gearbox, fitted with new seals, new ball seat, new slave cylinder, it has been opened up & inspected every year for damage, wear etc & none present. Perfect working order, I have always been gentle with the gearchanges to preserve it & its worked.

    Car comes with UK Registartion documents, UK registration plates & with a new windscreen fitted would pass a UK MOT with ease. Car is currently declared SORN.

    Tyres: Various sets available from track specific to road legal

    There is also the possibility of selling my Custom Built Extra Wide Tiltbed Woodfords 2600kg Trailer, with optional tyre rack & hand winch that has been used to transport the car. Valued at approximately 1800 GBP.


    I am open to serious offers around the high teens £18k would be my starting point, with all the wheels etc. Other options include supplied without the engine/gearbox/management etc. This car cost a fortune to build + 3 months of hard labour. It has seen a total of 25 days of action since its build so hardly used!. This car has a huge following worldwide which would only add to potential value for sponsors etc.

    I am happy to assist with delivery Europe wide, I speak German & Czech too if it helps.
