Spotted: The Toyota MR-S based, Zagato designed VM180

Hello everyone and welcome to another
Wasabicars video. My name is Daniel O’Grady. Thank you so much for joining me.
This is a very interestingly designed car, interestingly styled
i should say And, the firm behind its design is Zagato of Milan in Italy and they’ve done an interesting job. I
most certainly and familiar with their work with Alfa Romeos and even Aston Martins But this is the first time I’d seen a Toyota base. And the car that’s it’s based on is the MR-S. So, that’s mid-engined rear-wheel-drive car. and the engine is a four cylinder engine and the size I believe is just a
tad under 1.8 liters But, the engine produces a hundred and
fifty five horsepower so that’s fairly decent So, I saw it t a car show
in Fukuoka city and other than that i really have not
seen, well I’ve definitely not seen another Looking on the internet there’s
very little information about this car. I wonder if many were
produced at all. Do you know? I’d love to find out. Okay, guys. Thank you so much for joining
me. i hope you enjoyed this VM180. See you later.

  1. Wow this car is gorgeous, i have never seen this car before. The tail-lights remind me of the skyline gtr r35 a bit. Thanks for the upload!

  2. It was well-known enough to make it into a few Japanese video games. Beyond that, I've really never seen or heard of it at all.

  3. Wouldn't have a clue. Have never seen one for sale. I'm still unsure how many were actually made. I think they are pretty scarce.

  4. Anyone with a lot of money can commission any car to be re-bodied by Zagato. And if one have really a lot of money, they could ask Zagato to make a car for them. Keyword money! There are many Zagato rebody or one offs from many brands. Alfa, Bentley, BMW, Aston and more. This is not one of Zagato's best work IMHO. If it was rebodied by Zagato. Most of Zagato's cars does not have too many small details like this car that rob the car off its silhouette.

  5. o my god, dude!!!!!!!! This thing is f'n badass lookin'!!!!!!!!! did u know this exact car ( without the spoiler) is in tokyo xtreme racer drift 2 for the ps2??????????????

  6. Zagato, some of the most beautifully designed cars and some of the ugliest, shame no Japanese company commissioned a car from them in their 60's and 70's heyday, please correct me if I'm wrong

  7. I personally thinks it's pretty, love the headlights, it reminds me of the agressive looking TVR we all used to know πŸ™‚

    This is like a small sport TVR, interesting ~!
