2005 Toyota Caldina GT-FOUR

G'day Ben,

Just letting you know I've had the GT Four on the road for a few months now and absolutely loving it, it's such an effortless smooth comfortable car, perfect for touring. I've done a few little bits and pieces and it's now quite the head turner. Thanks for everything.

Nissan Fuga (Y50 series)

Introduced in 2004 and made until 2009, the Y50 series Nissan Fuga became Nissan's flagship luxury model, replacing the F50 Cima / President, though in fact these models still continued to be sold over this period. Sold in the US and Europe as the M35 and M45, the Fuga came with either a 3.5L V6 engine with 280hp / 208kW or a 4.5L V8 engine with 334hp / 245kW, each mated to a 5 speed tiptronic auto transmission. The very last of the 3.5L models from late 2007 onwards had the slightly higher output 3.5L engine with the VQ35HR with 313 hp / 230 kW. There were also more basic 2.5L V6 versions but these are not importable.

The Fuga was intended to be a high end luxury model but did also come with sports oriented versions, with the Fuga being a mid to large sized luxury sedan presumably aimed to compete with the BMW 5 series, Mercedes Benz E-Class or Lexus GS series.

ABS brakes Six airbags
