#Toyota GT 86 is here! #gt86 #ft86

Finally, the RWD pocket sports car by Toyota and Subaru is finally here! The 2.0-litre flat-four boxer engine features the unique D-4S direct fuel injection system, promising to really give the car some oomph at the red line. Toyota Europe is giving figures of 200 DIN hp and 205 Nm of torque, which imaginably means a great big kick in the back side as the car roars off.

Enough talking, just watch the videos!

The driver line-up for Toyota's return to Le Mans next year, and the inaugural FIA World Endurance Championships, was announced yesterday. By golly are they serious at Toyota Motorsport GmbH in Cologne, Germany. Of the three drivers, two have taken part in the legendary Le Mans race. Alexander Wurz, former F1 driver for Benetton, McLaren and the Toyota-powered Williams teams, took the chequered flag at the Circuit de la Sarthe twice in 1996 and 2009.

Apocalypse: The Second World War (2009)

Earlier this week, I came across yet another documentary on World War II. Watching it became one of those moments in life when you decided to take a plunge but come out on the other side thanking heavens that you actually did it.
