The Twin Turbo Toyota Aristo V300 is the Best Bargain in JDM Luxury!
Hey guys! Today we’re driving one of the greatest and most reliable luxury sedans to ever come out of the Japanese Domestic Market! (JDM). What makes the Aristo so special you ask?! It was the birthplace of the 2JZ-GTE and all of the glory that followed through the rest of the 90s with its application in the Mk4 Supra Turbo. Sold as the Lexus GS here in North America, the Aristo captured the Japanese market with it’s insane reliability and advanced powerband thanks to the 2J’s VVTI (Variable Valve Timing) and sequential turbos working together quite beautifully. It’s mated to a 4-speed automatic and had a few advanced features for the time that we’ll talk about on the drive! Enjoy!
