Speed Garage AE86

There are many different popular approaches to modifying the AE86 Corolla; drift-oriented, concours-original, BTCC-style... but I doubt it would occur to many to slather it in graphics reminiscent of the titles of a nineties TV show.
Built by Kazumi Nakamura of '86 specialists Custom Garage Speed, this Toyota started out as a $600 scrapyard find, and has been transformed into a full-on race-spec monster, as you've probably gathered from the vast spoilers, diffusers and assorted aero addenda. The bare-bones interior is pure function (note the rotated rev counter, for example), while the exquisite engine bay houses a 200bhp+ twink sporting Weber 45s and all kinds of competition goodies. It won't be to everyone's tastes, and that's very much the point.
