Car For Sale: Nero Turbo

February 27, 2011

When it comes to the subject of ’80s turbocharged Japanese ferocity, these are indeed a rare sight.

Isuzu Piazza Nero Turbo, tuned by Irmscher. Sweet rims too.

Marketed as the successor to the cult 117 coupe, styled by Giugiaro, tuned by Irmscher, and with a 2 litre turbo donk under the hood powering the rear wheels, once can’t help but feel that the Isuzu Piazza should be heaps popular, given the resurgence of ’80s nostalgia in the last few years. Unfortunately, they just aren’t.

Being sold in Australia and New Zealand as a Holden probably didn’t help either.

From A to B of the TCC variety.

This car is quite A-Rouse-ing.

Historic Touring Car category of the Classic Speed Fest. was enviably awesome.

Sorry for the delay, this CHC scenario has my head in a different space than is conducive to getting the blog sorted, so for an unspecified amount of time you’ll have to make do with drip feeds of images.

Still love this car, so amazing.
