Toyota Ireland is proud to announce that it has formed an alliance to help promote awareness for Headway Ireland, a great organisation that has been driving positive change for those with brain injury and their carers since it was established in 1985.
The work Headway Ireland does is very much in line with Toyota’s continued focus on building even better cars with improved safety technology that helps to reduce accidents. This focus is evident in our new TV commercial which depicts our Total Human Model for Safety simulation software designed to increase both passenger and pedestrian safety.
We look forward to working with Headway Ireland and to assist them in whatever way we can as they continue on their mission to help people who have been ill or injured to rebuild their skills to achieve the best quality of life that they can, as well as support their families.

Japanese Super GT version of its RC F coupe it's now confirmed a GT3 'concept', the car making its debut at Geneva next week. Now, the Super GT version looked the part (no, we still don't know what the hell was going on with that fancy dress pit crew in the press shots) but the new four-cylinder turbo engine rules for GT500/DTM aren't quite as evocative as what went before. No matter, the GT3 deals with that by sticking with a sodding great V8 - a modified version of the 5.0-litre unit in the roadgoing RC Fsharing the Geneva stand and making its European debut at the show.
In the GT3 it makes 540hp, around 90hp up on the road car, which paired with the 1,250kg kerbweight and aero should make it a formidable track weapon. If those are side exhausts below the doors we're sold on the idea! Built by Lexus International with assistance from Japanese subsidiary Techno Craft, the official line is that the RC F GT3 Concept 'signals Lexus' intent to support GT3 sports car racing in 2015.' And although the official blurb keeps calling it a concept it also says testing will begin later this year. We look forward to seeing it out there...
