I stumbled upon this awesome red Toyota Carina GT-R AA63 on widened steel rims with stretched tires:
One of the differences between the Carina GT and GT-R was the lack of alloys, or better: cool looking steel rims that were too narrow (5.5J I think).
This GT-R swapped its alloys for the GT items instead:
I keep forgetting that when widened the steel rims also look awesome.
Also notice the flashlight creating a white pinstripe suggestion in the first photo. Perhaps I should do a similar black pinstripe to my Carina? A cool and simple touch that makes the car look way nicer!
This morning I opened up Feedly and to my surprise the number one article was about this Toyota Carina GT-R AA63 at Nikko Circuit:
Dino Dale Carbonare spotted it at the Black Mark Day at Nikko Circuit and it really is an awesome car. The car is mostly stock except for the lowering springs and slightly rolled fenders. The black painted Techno Phantoms really suit the original dark grey Carina paint.
I am a big fan of Dino’s photography and lucky enough I was treated by photos like this one:

It doesn’t state why this Toyota Carina AA63 in a NCML drift video is called the Devil Carina but I think if you watch the video you will get a good hunch why.
Not only does it go sideways just as good as all the AE86s surrounding it, it also gets rediculously close to the white Toyota Corolla Levin AE86 driving up front, over and over again. And damn, those Volk Racing TE37v sure do look awesome on the Toyota Carina AA63!

Occasionally I browse Goo-Net to see if there are any interesting Toyota Carinas for sale, like a Carina Jeune or a 20v Carina. So when I spotted Yokosuka’s deep blue Toyota Carina AA63 for sale earlier today I really felt a strong pain in my heart:
Why? It is one of the nicest Carinas around and he put so much time and effort in the car!
Yes it really is the same…
On the positive side, this allows us to have a peek on all the internals of this beauty: Continue reading
I know I have been slacking again on the blog lately… My job was killing me and last Tuesday I gave a presentation at a MySQL oriented conference in London so hardly any time left for anything else. So I promise to make it up to you with this beautiful photo of the N-Style Toyota Carina AA63 taken by Nori Yaro:
Alexi Smith (aka Nori Yaro) visited the N-Style garage and took a couple of beautiful photographs of their car lineup, including three of the N-Style Toyota Carina AA63.
So head over to Nori Yaro’s visit to N-Style to see all the other photos!
I have no idea what has gotten into Dino Dalle Carbonare but lately he seems to be very much into the Toyota Carina AA63! He proved this by posting the N-Style Carina earlier this week on Speedhunters:
The N-Style Carina certainly has seen an overhaul since the last time I posted about it: two tone paintscheme, wilder camber and deeper dish!
I certainly like the new two tone paint scheme! Continue reading
