Toyota was pumping out fantastic performance-oriented sedans left and right towards the end of the last century and the Aristo has always been highly regarded as one of their best ones yet. A Supra in sheeps clothing, this JZS161 Aristo V300 has a lot going for it and it also has the guts to fly past most everything in its path. Finished in a one-off White Pearl, the exterior of this 2JZ-GTE powered Vertex edition is accented by a Lexus grille and 19" HPDesign alloys. Lowering springs close up any unwanted wheel gap and this Aristo defines the luxury sport aesthetic! Save for some imperfections in the respray and small dings throughout, this 77k verified mile transporter is no worse for the wear and an incredible performance bargain no matter which way you swing it. Ideal for road trips, daily duty, and sure to be the talk of any local Toyota meet, this Aristo is nothing less than a genuine Japanese Classic!

Modern, accessible, and chock full of premium materials and options, this 2nd generation Aristo's interior is a breath of fresh air here compared to our more classic Toyota offerings. The factory cloth upholstery has been obscured by a top market set of leather seat covers, and the materials are in good nick overall. Both driver and passenger benefit from power adjustable seating and the steering column is a power tilt and telescoping unit too. For the safety conscious, dual SRS airbags are present in the front and sides, and responsive ABS comes standard from the factory. The center stack frames an easy to operate dual zone climate control unit, with an adjacent Eclipse touch screen upgrade doling out your tunes through an optional JBL premium audio system. The HVAC is easy to control, with cold A/C and hot heat available to be supplied to both front and rear passengers. The power windows work like a charm, and the power locks and electric folding side mirrors add some extra accessibility for daily driving. Overall it's really hard to pick this cabin apart. There's some light UV distortion on the door cards, and the HVAC screen is starting to dim, but it's clear this one was cared for well as a whole. We've even retained some factory literature so your classic JDM investment stays well protected!

The chassis deserves high marks all the way around but true enthusiasts know this Aristo's drivetrain is made of pure gold! This 2JZ-GTE has the added benefit of a comprehensive recent service, and we addressed a few leaks of lubricant and even replaced the timing belt and water pump while we were in there. A new 12v battery aids ignition and we sealed up the 3.0 with a new valve cover gasket. After an oil and filter service she's road ready and we even replaced the engine air filter, fuel filter, and dropped in a new fuel pump to keep your petrol free and clear of unwanted contaminants. New spark plugs deliver reliable ignition, and we replaced the radiator and thermostat to ensure this 2J has no issues keeping cool. The twin turbochargers hit hard down low and VVT-i technology propels this saloon to blisteringly quick speeds in the top end. An automatic gearbox throws power rearward and the lowered suspension pays dividends in the twisties. Unique to the Aristo platform, these things also feature standard rear steering and can be a real treat to throw through a hairpin. We went ahead and replaced all the rear steering arms so the system functions as good as new! We replaced some leaky front balljoints with new units and a fresh alignment was performed to enhance the turn key experience. The 19" wheels were wrapped in brand new rubber, and you'll have on-demand grip for tens of thousands of miles to come!
