Toy’ shop

Toyota has launched a new section to its F1 shop that’s like an anti-car boot sale. And pretty much the only thing you can’t buy there is an actual car boot, although you can get a whole engine cover with underfloor and rear wing.

That latter piece (top) will set you back €5000, and for that you get a huge piece of carbon fibre that’s practically a full half of a car, that’s guaranteed to become the focal point of any living room. It’s huge!

Then there’s a rearwing with crasher (middle) for €2500, or a double plane frontwing for €800.

What I really want though is one of those awesome front wheels (bottom) at the bargain price of €200.

Yet, and I know this is going to sound ridiculous, but isn’t everything a bit, well, cheap for pieces of F1 history? For that money you could buy a Perodua Kalisa

I wonder which Essex driver is going to be the first to buy one of those for his Nova…?!

Yeah, Renault are doing the same sort of thing. Smaller pieces for higher prices though.

How about a new TG challenge? They are given a budget of £1000 pounds and have to build and race and F1 car?

How long before someone tries to mount that front wing to a CLio and the rear wing to a 1.2 Fiat Punto?

Is that so you can sit in it in the middle of your living room, whilst on the playstation?

If you were either an extreme boffin or completely sad then you could buy the whole F1 car (but in bits) and glue (or weld if your a boffin) all the bits together, attach the wheels and then add complicated mechanical stuff from, lets say, any car you can get your hands on for the least amount of money. So you’ll have an F1 car on the outside but a Mondeo on the inside.

‘It shall be called the Toydeo… Um… It’s broken’.

Has anyone asked themself ‘what’s the funkyn point?’

I love F1. Right to the point of reffusing one to my wife to watch fridays practice. And I still would not buy any of this pointless clutter no matter how cheap.
Second point: from toyota? They havent even won race yet.

Out of context. I love the fact that my spelling can go down as decent on this blogs.

I’d get the rear section and stick it (somehow) onto a gaming chair with one of those frames for a steering wheel and pedals. The front wing, brakes and wheels can go on my Austin Mini :-)

As for the cheapness, isn’t that the point of buying Japanese? Also the low low price is probably partly down to there being no legendary status like there is with a Renault R25 or a JPS Lotus.

What is the point it looks like someone from Toyota F1 has cannabilised the car and seeling them as beserk prices. WHAT IS THE POINT!!!. No one on earth would buy them except for hoodies in Fiat Pandas and Clios

^ Do you really think they can afford this stuff or have anywhere to put it? It’s for hardcore fans and rich middle easterns to use as a conversation starter. Or for higher-ups at Toyota maybe.

Well, to Toyota the parts could just be junk to them, so they sell it.
