The Glanza was the sporty variant of the final generation of the small Toyota Starlet. The S version was powered by a naturally‑aspirated 1331cc engine, while the Glanza V featured the same motor albeit turbocharged. In the S, it generated 84bhp, but with the V ‑ as here ‑ turbocharging pushed the total up to 138bhp which, in such a lightweight machine, gave impressive performance.

The Glanza was only officially available on the Japanese market, although some used private imports have made their way to the UK, such as this one. Registered in August 1996, we are advised by the vendor that it's a recent JDM (Japanese domestic market) import, which has just been given a new MoT with no advisories. The ticket is valid until October 2022. He also tells us that it 'drives superbly well' and is 'incredibly rare in such standard original form, with OEM (original equipment manufacturer) exhaust, intercooler, air box, stereo, CD changer, rear speakers, wind deflectors and JDM parking stick'.

The odometer reads 119,243, which equates to 74,526 miles. There is little history; the paperwork folder consisting of the current V5C, 2020 and 2021 MoTs and numberplate authorisation certificate dated November 2020, from shortly after its import.  

Overall, this Toyota is in very good order, with just a few blemishes in its metallic black paintwork and few signs of wear to its blue interior.
