1997 Toyota JZX100 TRD Chaser Tourer V:

The Toyota Chaser, a mid-sized sedan, was manufactured by Toyota in Japan between 1977 and 2001. This particular model, the Toyota JZX100 TRD Chaser, belongs to the third generation, produced from 1996 to 2001, with the Tourer V variant being the flagship model. The Chaser Tourer V featured a world-renowned 2.5-liter 1JZ-GTE turbocharged inline-six engine, delivering 280 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. In terms of its appearance, the Tourer V boasted a more aggressive aesthetic with a front spoiler, side skirts, and a rear bumper diffuser. Additionally, it rolled off the production line with 17-inch alloy wheels and smoked headlights. All in all, the Toyota Chaser Tourer V represented a high-performance iteration of a highly regarded Japanese sedan. Its popularity in Japan has turned it into a coveted import vehicle for enthusiasts worldwide. Fortunately, this particular model combines authentic JDM appeal with a collection of tasteful modifications.

This is the crème de la crème of JZX100’s. Overall this 1997 Toyota Chaser TRD JZX100 is in phenomenal condition, painted in the OEM Toyota White and comes with a ton of OEM modifications. This particular example is equipped with a Toyota Racing Development (TRD) wing, front bumper, side skirts and hood. The exterior of this car is in great condition and proves that over the past 26 years it has been meticulously cared for.

Beneath the lightweight hood, you’ll see the famous 1JZ-GTE VVT-i engine. While the engine itself may seem relatively standard, there are some enhancements in the engine bay, such as the HKS pod filter, FWiN radiator, and Cusco strut tower brace. These not only add a touch of style but also serve some practical purposes. The mileage is unable to be verified due to the fact that the instrument cluster was swapped out for a TRD instrument cluster. Although the vehicle’s odometer reads an unverified 88,515 kilometers, the overall condition of the vehicle and the integrity of the powertrain suggest that it likely remains close to that mileage figure. Of course, this could be attributed to Toyota’s exceptional engineering. In summary, this 1997 Toyota JZX100 Chaser Tourer V TRD is a fantastic vehicle that combines utility and enjoyment. It’s no surprise that it was highly popular in Japan, and as these cars become increasingly scarce, especially in such excellent condition, there’s no better time than now to experience driving one for yourself!
