Getting your hands on a custom car isn’t just about your wallet. You will have to prove that you deserve it.
Buying a fast or rare car is usually a bank account affair. No one cares whether you can drive such a car (with the known results we often see…) or if a rare edition is worth having for which the people of the company have worked hard.
It is therefore logical that some companies pass through a … sieve the customers who want to acquire such a model. For example, in the past, thehad foreseen such a procedure for the for which he even made the buyers sign that they won’t resell it for a year.
Now comes Toyota to do something similar, for its very special edition. And that, at least for now, concerns the Canadian market, where only 9 cars out of 200 will be produced in total.
This special edition ofit has even sportier characteristics, being lighter and with modifications to the suspension and mechanical parts to make it more efficient on the track.
The Canadian delegation decided to submit the prospective clients of this edition in a series of questions so as to single out those who might be shortlisted to acquire it.
Its goal is for the car to reach the real drivers who they know how to appreciate what it offers and not to those who simply have the money to buy it.
Prospective buyers they have to answer a questionnaire where beyond the standard ones (name, age, presence on social media) they are asked about the experience they have in sports models to date.
The research goes into even more specialized topics, such as the sports performance models the prospective buyer has owned, their experience with Toyota products, how they will use the car, even what their favorite road is to drive or the Pias many times a year as they intend to use it on the track.
This may all seem strange and perhaps a little excessive for a car that costs around 45,000 euros in Canada. But her goalis to show that the edition it is rare and cannot be acquired by someone who simply has money and is not passionate about sports driving.
And we can’t help but to applaud with the above this practice of the Japanese company.
