Meet the brains behind the Toyota GT 86
A blast along Scottish highland roads with Tada-san and Sasaki-san in the slidey ‘86
Posted: 03 Jan 2013
Tada-san is sat in the lounge of a picturesque Scottish hideaway deep in Argyll staring at a map. He is nursing a small measure of whisky. He is serious. His colleague, Sasaki-san, also clasps a measure of Scotland's finest malt, as he traces his finger across the map to a point the pair of them suddenly recognise. Their eyes light up in unison as though having discovered gravity.
"We want to find Nessie," Tada-san declares, in warm, Japanese intonation. "We want to see the Loch Ness Monster." Sasaki-san agrees.
