Toyota Aurion

Figured I'd share this one with you guys.
Just pickup up a Toyata Aurion for one of my reps to drive.

These are made in Australia on the same line as the Australian Camry, but they differ quite a bit. Even the Aussie Camry is very different to your US version due to our very different conditions. All Camry's here are 4 cylinder powered.

This Aurion has a 280Bhp 3.5 liter V6. This is the 'Sportivo SX6" model which is a mid spec sprts model.

Anyone, now I've shown ya!

Re: Toyota Aurion

Well both my Skylines are black

I think silver is a good "working vehicles" colour, it hides a lot of marks.

Yeah it goes very nicely. Very smooth, quite powerful. It is a bum dragger though (front drive), and has non-switchable traction control. It's not a sports car though, it's a cruiser I guess
