Light, agile, and very quick

We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again - we here at TopSpeed love ourselves a tasty engine swap, especially when it involves head-spinning redlines. That’s why we’re going a bit gaga over this one - say hello to the Toyuki Starbusa.

Rocking 200 horsepower and just 780 kilos (1,720 pounds) of curb weight, this RWD three-door is a mighty impressive little machine. It’s certainly got the goods to embarrass all kinds of bigger, more expensive machinery, especially when you put it on a twisting, challenging hill climb course.

That much is obvious from this 2-minute, 14-second video clip, which shows the Toyuki Starbusa sprinting up the course at the 2018 Leadfoot Festival like a scalded mountain goat. The video includes both an in-car point of view and shots from along the course perimeter, and with that little Suzuki engine at full song, it’s a feast for both the eyes and the ears.
