1993 Toyota Aristo 3.0V
The Toyota Aristo is one of the best all around sedans to ever come out of Japan. Cool styling and a powerful engine with loads of potential make the Aristo the perfect choice for just about anything. This 1993 example is finished in an iconic two tone Opal White Pearl over Warm Grey (046). It's hard to see the two tone in the photos and while it's subtle, it is two tone. The exterior shows well and has been well kept over the past 26 years. Of note the front bumper has a few scuffs and scratches on the bottom side likely from entering and exiting inclines as the ride height is fairly low (however is adjustable, if you prefer to raise it). Otherwise the body is free of any majors blemishes or issues. The exterior remains largely stock with a few exceptions, the side mirrors have been upgraded to include LED turn signals and the front bumper has been modified to accept the massive Greddy front mount intercooler. The optional OEM rear wing looks great and the sun roof wind deflector is OEM and difficult to find. Clear side markers have also been added to the rear bumper and look great with the color.
Inside, the cabin is finished in a luxurious executive tan cloth. The seats are in great condition with only minimal signs of use. The drivers seat shows some bolster wear, but does not have any rips or tears. The passenger seat and rear seat are both in great condition. The dash is clean and free of any major sun damage, cracks, or bubbles. The door panels are in great condition with only minor signs of use over the years. The automatic climate control functions properly and the A/C is cold. The factory headunit has been replaced by a double din unit which plays DVDs and CDs. A Greddy boost guage and Autogauge water temp, oil temp, and oil pressure gauges have also been added neatly to the dash. Finally an after market wood grain steering wheel replaces the OEM piece. Overall a very clean well kept interior.
Mechanically the twin turbo 2JZ-GTE engine starts right up and idles smoothly. Boost comes on strong and pulls hard throughout the RPM range. Shifts are smooth through the automatic transmission and a few upgrades have been performed to the engine itself. A Greddy front mount intercooler makes the front end a bit more intimidating and adds a bit more power. An HKS intake pipe, filter, and BOV allow air to flow more freely and create an enjoyable sound whenever your right foot pushes the pedal. Finally, an axle back Fujitsubo exhaust adds a bit more sound from the potent 2JZ but has a classy tone, and not overbearing. Unfortunately, the odometer could not be verified, so actual mileage is unknown however, is currently reading 64k miles. Suspension is handled by a set of Tom's coilovers and are fully height adjustable so you can set the ride height wherever you like, if the current height is too low for your liking. Finally, a set of 18" Work Euroline DH wheels finish off the low down style perfectly. This Aristo is the perfect sedan for a unique daily commuter that is sure to turn heads and has the power on tap to get you anywhere fast!
