Hi there .
My name is IVIS Page .
And you join me at a race track .
Well , the parking lot of race track , you see , I am driving this the new Legend 50 and after 50 years of making Toyota Hilux Buck , this might be one of the best ones .
This legend 50 is kind of at the top of the bay food chain , at least for Toyota , except as of recently , it isn't introducing the Gazoo racing highlights .
It costs 50,000 more than the Legend 50 but it has exactly the same engine with the same power , but because it's an auto , there's a bit more talk .
It has smaller wheels and tires and for improved handling and all new front suspension developed by Gazoo racing .
But most importantly , it has a lot of racing stripes , which means it must be faster inside .
Plenty detail to remind you that this is a zoo racing parking and you even got a little name plate over here .
They let you know which number your one is out of the 600 made .
Now , I'm trying to figure out if the changes that Toyota made to this car have made any difference and the only way to find out is a race .
And so the good people at Tiger Raceway , let us set up our own racetrack on the property with a mix of gravel and tarmac and some fast and tight corners .
It was time for a hot lap shootout .
Here we go .
Legend 50 Manuel , get off the line .
Come on .
This former Manuel fans out there hard on the brakes here .
Oh , a bit slippy through there down into second gear .
Now , let's see if we can swing it all the way through here .
He's gonna under steer three here on the hand brake .
Keep it sideways to keep it sideways .
Come on , I'm gonna leave it in second gear with this section over here .
Out of the brakes on the hand brake drive much easier with a manual gearbox .
And this one of course doesn't have the quick suspension up front .
It's got the bigger wheels .
But will that make , make a difference on it's quick ?
That is quick .
That is quick through the art of the brakes here now .
Down to second gear and 50,000 rand for that Kazuo racing .
Is it worth that ?
We're about to find out the clock does not lie through this section here and finish .
Not bad .
52 21 not too shabby at all .
So is the stripy Hilus any quicker ?
54 one .
Come on now , all ready .
I can feel that there's a slight difference in the front .
The says they change the shots on the front of this car as well .
Has made the wheel slightly smaller .
Let's see if this puts a difference through here .
But under , there are p under , they actually does feel like there is a little bit more in the front .
Let's see how the hair pin does on the hand brake .
That of course .
So I'm waiting for the park to kick in there .
Come on because we're coming to the second to last corner .
Now on the hand brake here , I see early .
Oh , sliding all the way across the track .
Let's see .
The final corner .
Now , keep a tiny page .
Keep it tidy and finish .
Let's see .
That's a 50.94 .
Oh my God , this is way faster .
This is way , way faster .
I knew it felt faster , but I wasn't quite sure it's gonna be that big of a difference .
So it turns out the G R sport is more than just stickers , different wheels and trick suspension on our course today it was a full two seconds faster than the legend 50 and yes , I could have gone faster in each , but throughout the day they were separated by exactly the same amount of time .
Now , looking at the G R , you would think that it should be faster with all those stickers .
But I tell you what , 535 lucky owners out there are gonna be very glad that they opted for those stickers , those wheels and that suspension .
