Big things with little cars

It’s a car! That was the advertising that Toyota used for the Yaris recently. Very confidence inspiring. Anyway this here purple people eater is a Toyota Yaris RS by Paudi, maker of dealer models and features more working parts than some 1:1 scale cars.

This RS model is the top of the line trim for the Yaris and featured a bodykit, power everything and nicer seats. Surprisingly it didn’t come with a little lift kit and extra foglights since RS stands for RallySport.

This Yaris is a lovely shade of purple that really sparkled in the sun.

As with all Paudi models, there is a carpeted interior and a highly detailed dash.

The rear seats fold forward a bit but not much unfortunately. Also the rear cargo cover flips up.
