Such a shame. The car was featured in this exhaust comparison video. It looked mint at the time.

Such shame, looks like a pretty major prang. Hope the driver is OK.

Ouch, I reckon that's rolled a couple of times going with the damage down the drivers rear 1/4. Could have dug in after losing it on a corner maybe who knows. Sad but looks like the cabins held up not too bad.

@mike m Yep who'd want a wimpy diesel when you can have a V8, I used to have a couple of Nissan Navaras for work they were ok I could never get the right deal from Toyota 🙄

Hi folks. Warrington Guy is right, I did own a mesa red one until June last year. I sold it to a guy from Kent. I've just been in touch with him and it's not my old car that's been written off. There were only 8 mesa red ones left in the country (so I'm told)...... only 7 now. :-(

GY08GBE but I know the new owner but his private plate on it and I haven't a clue what it is now. If any of you lads are thinking of selling....... don't!!!!! I regret it and wish I still had it.

Hilux are expensive and hold they're money well so I'm not surprised. Lot of Navaras are snapping in half :scared:

At the risk of going off topic this is my idea of a proper pickup and would love one from Oz. Still a V8 but diesel unfortunately.

Think that clip was Bluewater 2016, the mod’d ISF is Pete’s one, there’s a supercharger going on that very soon, saw the red one there and yes she was in top condition, id be gutted and daresay the owner is too 😔

@finchy40 is that lexus Edinburgh showroom? Looks like Seb in the background. If it is then he took me and the wife out for a quick run in a Mesa red ISF when I'd just bought an RX. I won't go into it too much but the wife went quiet sitting in the front lol.  Two years later I bought my isf. :smile:
