Here at Kanzen Motorsports, we cut our teeth and made our name in the market by focusing on the GT86/BRZ platform, one that by any standards is pretty much a modern day Silvia. The car is often disregarded for its relatively low power level, lack of forced induction and ‘meh’ styling from stock – but to do so is a complete misunderstanding of its design philosophy. It was built from the ground up to be a foundation for modification and not only that, they drive so well out of the gates that the starting point you have is already excellent.
If you’ve been thinking of getting into the Toybaru platform, now is a great time to do it. Used prices for early models go as low as 30k AED and with little difference in spec, your choice pretty much extends to transmission and colour. Purists will say that the manual is the way to go, but those that stigmatise the auto are often doing so with a lack of experience of that box.
