Only 55,000km on the clock, this is a great example of the Starlet GT Turbo, currently offered on Ebay USA asking $9,500 (USD). As a JDM only version of the starlet, these never got a chance to compete against other popular compact GTi hatches of the era. Only as an aftermarket import are these pocket rockets being appreciated by a global audience, including in many LHD markets.
The GT Turbo is fitted with a 1.4l 4E-FTE engine with a CT9 turbocharger, producing around 100kw. That's not particularly impressive by today's standards, but when you wrap the engine in a body that only weighs 890 kilograms (1,962 lb), it makes a very fun ride. The seller states this one is in unmolested and amazing condition and could make a great daily driver.
Many of these have been over-modified, so it's nice now and then to see an example like this that has been kept true to the original formula. If you've got one, please sign up and add yours to the register. Follow us on Facebook for more interesting cars found for sale around the world.
