It's bound to be unfortunately, if it wasn't, or it wasn't limited supply then I would be up for one.

I'm pretty certain the 4wd system is based on the one that was in the famous Celica GT4 WRC car which is pretty cool!

After a bit Internet browsing it seems that there is a fair chance it will be under £30k. The Japanese list price is £27k.

Great if it is in the UK but I somehow doubt it

Just spoken to a friend who races with some of the Toyota engineers that worked on it - £27,200 for the base model and £31,900 for the track pack. Quite a few of them have placed deposits. Toyota think they're going to sell 25,000 worldwide..........

It's great to see companies like Renault and Toyota doing somthing a bit different.

I really can't wait it looks like and how well it reviews!

Awesome bit of kit. Should sell well, nothing like it anywhere on the market.

Unfortunately, Renault have given up doing ground breaking stuff like this that is affordable, accessible and not an overpriced limited edition. The last attempt at anything a bit unique was the Clio RS16 and that never made production. Tragic.

Looks like a really neat little car be interesting how well it performs. Probably not for me now but 10 years ago when I had the 200..defo.

Be amazed if it is under 30k, especially with the WLTP fines now hitting manufacturers for selling anything over 95g co2.

Awesome bit of kit, need more performance small cars.

Seems to have gone up a bit from what they were told, but a good price nonetheless when you consider the engineering involved.

Bloody fantastic! Competitive prices versus competition. Can't see a compelling case to buy any other PERFORMANCE hot hatch, on paper beats even a CTR.

Road car they seem to have invested in exactly the right areas. Ford RS, R.S.,Subaru, this is where you all went wrong.

Amazing price when you consider what you get, and what has gone into it engineering wise.

My thoughts exactly Penn. Low kerb weight to so great power to weight ratio.

Cracking price. Huge appeal and a mini Nissan GTR. Going to sell well.

33.5 grand? Nice little car but I don't see it as a 'steal' myself.

Have you not seen the price of cars these days? Under 30k for something like this is amazing value.
