Fast forward to 2020, this ad has become reality as a video producer converted a BMW M5 into the perfect camera car.Dubbed “The Bavarian Ranch Hand”, this 2002 E39 BMW 5 Series M5 is a purpose-built camera chaser car capable of capturing car-to-car footages at speeds over 200

Toyota in the 1990s was on a roll when it came to producing some of the greatest cars of the modern era. Models like the A80 Supra, SW20 MR2, the Z30 Soarer and even the X90 Chaser/Mark II/Cresta became modern cult classics among car fans.However, there is another Toyota model from that period that should also deserve to be a modern classic. It was revolutionary in design, had some clever engineering, and more importantly for a Toyota, pretty reliable. I'm of course talking about the first g

UMW Toyota akan melancarkan satu model baru pada 17 Disember. Sudah menjadi kebiasaan promo acah pada fasa awalnya, maklumat terperinci belum didedahkan.
