This is what has been making Toyata fans in Lagos salivate over since last year. It definitely stands out with its distinct white top. It comes in a variety of colours and so far I’ve seen black, blue and yellow. I don’t particularly like the doors. The 2-door concept is the problem for me – I don’t think it is children-friendly (their fingers could get caught using this weird door-opening mechanism where the doors open towards you like so (\ /) starting with the door on the right-hand side. It looks like something right out of Lego and I’m still trying to establish whether it’s a girly kind of car or a macho man’s toy. I’d drive one of these…but only id it was handed over to me for free…the price tag aint too bad: $25,628/£17,081/N5m (not for sale)
This relatively new on the Lagos road scene. Been seen to grace our roads only for the last 3months and I’ve only seen 2 including this one. If you want to stand out in the equivalent of a Ford Mini then this is the car for you. Only comes in Manual Transmission but at least the windows are automatic. Definitely an eye-turner and has a bit of umph under that hood for some fast turbo action…okay not ‘Fast and Furious’ fast…just fast. Cost = N1.5m/ $8571/ £6000 (FOR SALE!!! @ N1.1M)
Now this is a car that is just too sexy for the road. It’s no coincidence that I took the photo from this angle – I’m a booty man. Some like breasts – they’re breast men. Some like legs – They’re leg men. I’m an ass-man (NOT an ass, man). This car also gets heads turning and has a 2.0 litre engine, complete with a 6-CD changer and leather seats. Perfect for a night out and that gloss finish – whoa! If you look closely near the rear light you’ll see the reflection of a man and the navy blue and sky blue car’s ass on the side of this Chery. The shine is just immaculate. This kind a car could set you back a mere N2.2m/$12571/£7857 (not for sale).
Same model, same ass, same glossy wet-look finish…just a different colour – a hypnotic sky blue. You can appreciate the length of this car better with this angle. Blue’s my favourite colour but there’s something really bold about dark colours…thats why I drive the black one 😀 (FOR SALE!!! @ N1.7M)
This is the first type of car I ever drove when I was 16. It was a Manual Transmission dream built for Nigerian roads (which weren’t always tarred back in the day). The Peugot 504 that I drove was actually mustard green and it was in mint condition unlike this blue one I found parked in my residential estate. The car doesn’t shout out to you ‘I’m sexy!’ and it doesn’t attract girls like a BMW would but it is one of the most durable and cost effective cars in Nigeria. It was and is still used as the Nigerian government’s official car. They ride dark army green or black Peugot 504 cars, sometimes with an elephant tusk embedded in the front-centre of the bonnet like an ivory dildo. (Would you even buy this?)
