Trd Altezza Info

Recommended Posts

Hi one and all, working for Toyota I have owned most models. The best by far was a fully modded, caged Supra TT. I am now looking at buying a lexus is/rs 200, but I have been told of a TDR Limited edition Altezza. Can Anyone offer any info, pics or links on this model,ie it has TDR suspension, bodykit and badges but what else? Is the engine modded? What gearbox options? are the brakes, trim etc different?

How do I tell the difference between a genuine or a copy?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry about the duplicat posting, when posted it came up as `page expired` so i thought all was lost, hence the relisting.

sorry cant help as never heard of TDR or TDR suspension.

Think you may have been mis-informed.

If you mean TRD I think they only do parts, have built some themselves, but from what I've been told they are only race cars.

Sorry I ment TRD, I have the chance of buying one for £7000 on the road.

No, it`s a P/X I know of but cheers, The one on ebay dosen't look like anything special, I was expecting an all singing all dancing car. I spoke to him and it has a 2L 6cly engine not a beams, 4speed auto box (not triptronic) plain cloth trim. Are they really anything special or is a beams engine, 5speed triptronic rs200 a better chose do you think as I would like a grey car with 1/2 leater seats.

Cheers

as ive said in other posts, there is no such thing as a TRD altezza as such, the only official cars built by TRD were the works race cars

Before i bought my car i was a looking at a "TRD" altezza, well thats what the dealer called it :blush: .... i now know it was just a regular RS200 with a load of TRD branded extras bought and put on by the previous owner in Japan ... ;)

If you're not buying the 210bhp RS200 and instead the 153bhp 6cyl version, why not just get a UK Lexus IS200 instead of the Altezza - would be much more straightforward and you'll have plenty to choose from :)

How old is the one you're looking at? I would have thought £7k could get you a 2000/2001 SE (possibly even 2002 if you're lucky) which will have the half leather and all the other bits you might want

For all the genuine replys thank you.

The Toyota TRD Altezza does exist as a homologated version of the race car, TThanks for your help, maybe because it is a 'Toyota' you have no idea it exists.

There is no such thing as a HKS is 200, the TRD Altezza IS built buy TRD!

A beams with triptronic with TRD subframes, anti-bars, tein coll overs and AP or brembo brakes is the way to go though as the TDR Altezza is getting a bit old in the tooth, so firsyt step in my quest is a grey rs 200 with triptronic and 1/2 leather.

I draw this question to an end

Thanks again

The only thing I can think of that you mean is the Qualitat version of the Altezza, that came with a few changes to the car that the standard RS200 did not have, can't remember exactly what though, think it was gold wheels and red interior on the steering wheel etc, not sure of the other changes

i can assure you ....that there was no, road going homologated Altezza built by TRD...for use on the public road

all the TRD parts can be purchased from TRD but only in Japan...FACT

some of the parts were never released for sale for the road going cars, if you want i can list all the parts available, dicontinued, and the parts that were never released for sale to the public.
