Sharing a drivetrain with the beloved Mk4 Supra, the Toyota Aristo is a killer daily driver that's also quite easy to modify, maintain, and enjoy! Our 1997 V300 is chock full of premium upgrades and is finished in the desirable Atlantic Blue Pearl (8L4). Showing a few stone chips and dings from day to day use, the exterior is no worse for the wear and the 48k verified and documented miles on the clock do a lot to aid this twin turbo tourer's desirability. Set off by rare Abflug carbon fog light deletes, OEM optional side skirts, privacy tint, and bronze 18" Volk TE37's, the sport saloon aesthetic is nicely done without being too over the top. Tein coilovers help eliminate any unsightly wheel gap and this Aristo is nearly the perfect daily. Fast, fun, and constructed with the premium build quality you've come to expect from Toyota, this Japanese Classic is far from your average Lexus!

Optioned with a seldom seen leather interior, the upholstery has resisted the better part of three decades with minimal wear and tear to the cowhides. The power bucket seats operate seamlessly as does the electric tilt and telescoping steering column. Dual front and SRS airbags came standard for any worst case scenarios, and the headliner, carpets, and door cards are tidy, resisting any major distortion or other UV related defects. The dash houses a simple to use dual zone climate control system and an adjacent ATOTO headunit. Audiophiles will appreciate the Apple CarPlay integration, and the performance crowd will likely prefer the digital Defi gauge suite. All four power windows are automatic, and the power locks and electric folding side mirrors work as advertised. The rear bench and trunk are spacious, and there's virtually no major defects apart from some light wear to the drivers seat bolster. To preserve the history of this Aristo, we've retained the factory carpet mats, OEM optional trunk mat, and owner's manuals. Even the factory optional RescueMan seatbelt cutter is included with the sale!

The 2JZ-GTE under the bonnet is a standout feature of these V300's and this Aristo was the first to debut with VVT-i technology as well. Ours is powered by a Tom's ECU, is fresh off a recent service and cranks right over thanks to a recently replaced 12v battery. An oil and filter service was performed, and a Greddy oil cooler and oil filter relocation kit assist with cooling and changing your internal lubricant. This GTE receives some auditory assistance via an Abflug carbon fiber intake box, HKS RS Intake, and a full titanium Amuse dual exhaust paired with a Sard high flow cat. A Koyo radiator keeps things cool, and this JZS161 runs and drives like a dream. A Premium Japan throttle body alleviates common issues with the stock unit, and a Revolfe igniter and coil packs aid ignition. Shifts through the automatic gearbox are smooth and direct, and a full slate of chassis bracing (TRD, Cusco, Carbing) under the car keeps this sport saloon flat in the twisties. The power steering is direct and a Tom's 6 pot/4 pot brake setup helps the ABS system stop on a dime. The TE37's are wrapped in good Advan V601 rubber. Ideal for warm climate hooning, they'll keep you glued to the tarmac for tens of thousands of miles to come!
