Toyota Aristo/Chaser/Soarer

Some names here might be familiar, others will have everyone except avid enthusiasts looking bewildered.

The Aristo is effectively a GS300 Lexus but with the same twin-turbo engine as an RZ Supra and prodigious performance. Early Chaser turbos use the same body as the last of the local Cressidas, as does the Mark 2 - except it was sold as a four-door hardtop.

| Buyer's Guide: Toyota Soarer 1991-1999

The JZZ and UZZ Series Soarers available from 1991-2000 were once common in Australia, however age and the parts scarcity have affected numbers without doing much for pricing.

Virtually any 2.5 turbo Soarer in our market will sell for less than $20,000, with V8 and 3.0-litre six-cylinder cars at half the Turbo’s price.

Aristo 2001-06 $22,855 [10]

Soarer 3.0T 1986-90 $17,750 [4]

Soarer 2.5T 1991-98 $14,650 [20]
