Toyota Soarer V8 UZZ32 Presentation Active Suspension 4WS Exhaust Interior Features
This is a quick video of my Toyota Soarer UZZ32, number 453 out of 873 ever
built (pretty rare machine). Please keep in mind this car was made in 1991,
the features on it were simply amazing for that year.
This model is also known as the Lexus SC400 in the US however it doesn't
feature most of the goodies the JDM only Soarer had. Funny enough the body
was designed in California and it was the first car to be completely
computer designed (CAD). I have to say the designers did an amazing job, it
still looks special and not so outdated.
In the video I showcase the computer controlled active hidro-pneumatic
suspension on some train track slates (notice how level the body is), show
the four wheel steering system (4WS), give you a little taste of the stock
Exhaust note of the amazing 1UZ-FE
4.0L V8 engine and also show the interior of the car and some of it's
features. At some point you'll hear some strange noises from the mirror,
that's actually the ultrasound cleaning feature. Pretty awesome, eh ?
I mostly made the video so that I can show the car to prospective buyers as
I wanted to sell it but I just couldn't bear to let it go, it's pretty
special to me.
More details soon.
Jeremy Clarkson reviews the Toyota Soarer UZZ32 Active in Old Top Gear - Lexus SC400 Coupe
This is a video review of the rare active suspension Toyota Soarer - also
known as the Lexus Sports Coupe (SC). It's from a segment on cars that are
not imported in the UK from the old Top Gear, don't know the year yet, I
will update when I find that out.
Jeremy is quite impressed with the handling of the computer controlled
hydro pneumatic suspension (A-SUS) and 4WS system (A-4WS) that gives the
car great agility and confort. He also goes through some of the cool
gadgets this car had.
Remember the UZZ32 has been launched in 1991 and only 873 were ever made so
it's quite a rare bird.
