A Toyota On Your Desk

Toyota has unveiled a new way that do-it-yourselfers can build their own car. No, it’s not LEGOs, complicated kit car sets, or the creative application of duct tape and Bondo. Instead, it requires a hobby knife, some glue, and paper.

High-resolution kits to show you how to fold and glue your way to a RAV4, Prius, Land Cruiser, and GT86 are all available with full instructions and pictorial guides.

You can download the kits at this link and share them on Toyota’s social media sites as well. I also hear that the MPG and emissions ratings for these little kit cars is phenomenal, though the EPA has not yet rated these new designs.
