    yeah i am pretty sure that has been photoshopped other wise the front doors would be holding on by one set of hinges

    edit: then i looked at the pics in the article and realized that there are giant fender flares in the front...:facepalm:

    This was vehicle was posted earlier in the year. Its based on a 2nd gen tacoma, not a hilux.

    This caught my eye:
    2150 litre fuel capacity: uses half the fuel of similar vehicles

    So it carries 568 gal of bio fuel?
