With turbo + manual examples now costing in-excess of $45,000, this is your chance to build your own.

This one is original, unmodified, and drives just like you'd want it to.

Toyota X-chassis vehicles are steeped in drift history.

Big hits from this back catalog include JZX81 Chaster, JZX90 Cresta, JZX100 Chaser, and even later-model JZX110 Mark II, too. All of these cars are regularly seen in media like Drift Tengoku and can also still be seen sliding around every drifting venue in Japan.

It’s the ‘Chosen One’ in terms of a vehicle platform that slides. Easily modified, fast, reliable, and with endless genuine Toyota and aftermarket support, there is no real better choice for motorsport enthusiast with a bent for going sideways

It’s probably why they’ve gotten so expensive. With the US market now cottoning-on some 10-years later than us Aussies means they are getting sadly getting expensive.

If you want the car pictured with a turbo JZ and a factory manual, it’ll cost well over $45,000. We keep out eyes out for the perfect X100 ‘base’ cars, as these often give you the chance to actually own, drive, and later modify it to suit your needs.

Standard and original factory-manual X100s are rare – we’ve seen only a handful worth buying in the past 24-months, like this one.

About the car pictured – 1999 Toyota Mark II Grande

Our Toyota Mark II was built in June 1999 and is a GX100 ‘Grade’ model

That means it’s powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.o-litre ‘1G-FE’ straight-six engine. This example is also a factory five-speed manual.

It’s finished in ‘8L4 – dark blue pearl’, a rare colour for any X100 Toyota. You’ll find it presents with a beautiful deep blue hue that offers hints of purple. This example is factory-fitted with climate control air conditioning, power steering, remote central locking, driver and passenger airbags and a bumper parking guide.

It was purchased in Japan via their domestic auction network and was graded 4.0B and comes with a service history. Aside from a set of aftermarket JDM rims; it’s standard, and drives just like you’d expect.

That’s plush, quiet, and maybe begging for a bit more power.
