It’s almost a year since we featured Benjamin”s AE86 here. To many of those residing overseas, an AE86 wouldn’t mean much to begin with, or cost much so as to speak.
A second look at this AE86 since last year.
Sadly living in Singapore, all our cars here are slapped with a 10-year certification that is worth around USD$80,000 that allows the cars to be on the roads. Owning a car here is like having a depreciating asset pegged to the years left on that piece of paper. Cars like the AE86, would have renewed this certificate at its age.

I used the words “restoring them to their original glory” in the teaser of this AE86. I may have made a little mistake there. After-all, this car was glorified by none other then… Well, lets put the number at a low 70% of every girl’s dream guy.
I can assure you Jay Chou or Takumi for that matter has got nothing on THIS.
