    The Sard MC8-R was a modified and lengthened version of the Toyota SW20 built for GT racing by Toyota's works team SARD (Sigma Advanced Research Development). The MC8-R housed a twin-turbo version of the 4.0-liter Toyota 1UZ-FE V8 producing 600 hp. Eligible for the GT1 category, the MC8-R lacked pace against the new generation sports cars and homologation specials such as Porsche 911 GT1, but did compete alongside a similarly modified Toyota Supra. One MC8 road car was built in order to meet homologation requirements, but its current whereabouts are unknown.

    Wow. Final hurrah from Toyota's sporty side before it all went tupperware overload? Don't really like that front, but the rest is actually very cool. Can anyone trawl thru' the net to find its whereabouts??

    Impossible to find out much about it, much less where it currently is sadly.

    If I had to guess then SARD probably have a warehouse for stuff and it's in there.
