Evan already posted these videos on HR blog, so I’ll just repost them here! They are videos from Toyota shot on several European circuits:
Probably an exhibition video by Toyota to see how well the new AE86 was appreciated in the old world, so this has got to be between May and August 1983.
As you can see they did not use the Euro Levins (aka Corolla GT) but took their own. Both Levins are early GT Apex models: apart from the decals you can see both have the rotating grille and the white coupe has a black moulding on the trunk.
The white Levin shows some nice action when it goes sideways on the Nurburgring before heading over to Spa and Zandvoort. Funny detail is that both Zandvoort and Spa were Formula One circuits at that moment while the Nurburgring was working hard to make a comback with the Eifelring. On Spa they really go wild on the long corners and on Zandvoort they do some faint drifts on consecutive corners. 🙂
The Corolla sedan in Europe Scenery is a bit of a letdown after all that action! 😉
Tomorrow a follow up on this video, so stay tuned for more! 🙂
