Carina Sightings: Carina GT-R coupe AA63

October 7, 2009 in carina sightings by banpei

Some time ago I posted a really nice Carina GT Coupe TA45 which I found at Japan Vintage. I also found a Carina GT-R Coupe AA63 on their website but never actually posted it…

As you can see it is a very beautiful Carina coupe sitting on a set of Toms racing wheels and PIAA foglights!

As you can see, the pictures were taken at the same setting as the Carina GT TA45 coupe. Somehow that background makes those cars look even better!

Exhaust is not that special, but you can see from its bumper and taillights that it is the late type model. You could also have deducted that from the fact that it is an AA63! ;)

I also uploaded the video that was on the advertisement:

Nice TRD sticker on the side, but most probably only the springs and shocks are TRD.

When viewed closer these Toms rims are looking good. Also the lip is a very nice aftermarket one!

Once upon a time… this car was a red car… :D

And the interior looks pretty clean. However there are some dashboard parts missing: Right speaker cover is missing, pedals and steering wheel have been swapped, an ugly foglight switch on the center console and an ashtray has been mounted on the drivers door… Not as immaculate as the interior of the TA45 coupe…

All in all a very nice looking car. Obviously this car has been tuned for street usage which left its marks on the car itself. The price is 4300 dollars which is way too much for a 24 year old 168000km car with powersteering and aircon.
