Somebody in Belgium spent 126k€ on a freaking Lexus.

Who goes ‘no I don’t want an AMG, or an M car, or even an RS Audi, just a very expensive Toyota please’ ?

Someone who wants to a rev happy naturally aspirated V8 with no electrification.

Seriously, that Celica is now your only choice out of those options. Unless that thing is the 500h with the V6 hybrid...
 
Well I guess that's true, if the "naturally aspirated" aspect is THAT important.
OTOH there are tons of secondhand N/A V8s also on sale for a lot less than that fancy Celica...

100k+ on any car that's not special/exclusive/fast/??? is daft to me.
 
Seen today:

Mundane car, but rare by now: Alfa Romeo 33

Mercedes-AMG GT with a ugly whaletail spoiler and (I assume) a bodykit. Also had a handful of black carbon winglets stuck to each front fender:

And a gaggle of classics, that Jaguar was especially beautiful:

Whoa, one owner from new, just 110k km on the odo and in that kind of condition - nice!
 
While not the prettiest car going, that wins just for weirdness.

80s coupé body - check
Morris Marina door handles - check
Turbine wheels - check
Funny mirror stalks like a gear stick gaiter - check
Slightly modified tail light clusters from the parts bin - check
Single spoke steering wheel like a Citroen - check
Three seats - WTF?!

^ Yeah, three seats, I had no idea and did a double take when I looked inside. - I didn't noticed the three seats when I took the outside pics beforehand. :LOL:
 
Saw this VW Type 3 just before I went on holiday:

Looks like it's in good condition. I was told most of these rusted away in the 80s, and many of were wrecked in rallycross, few survived in good nick.

And the ones you do see will look ok outside, but have a falling apart interior because they seemed to not last, and good luck finding a donor. These are such groovy little things.
