Three writers at Car Advice including myself have written reviews on Toyota’s controversial TRD Aurion and I was the only to sing the car’s praises.

It’s probably an age thing. I’m over 40 and Paul and Alborz are under 30. That must be it.

241 supercharged kilowatts is a lot of juice to be flowing to the front wheels. Torque Steer. Yes, of course there’s a little torque steer, but it’s entirely manageable and quite a non-event. Just hold the steering wheel properly, with both hands, as you should be and there’s no drama whatsoever.

And if you need to jump on the right pedal and give it a boot full, you’ll be rewarded with ‘blast off’ style acceleration that keeps on going and going, thanks to those 400 Newton metres peaking at a respectable 4000rpm.

Normally I would be physically ill if I had to live with red leather seats in a daily ride, but this colour trim in a black TRD, is stunning.

But before I end up writing another 1500 word review on the TRD, which I have no intention of doing, I wanted to share with you, a few photos of the car which I had shoved in a desktop file and forgotten about.
