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.

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.

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.
