Sad day for those who love Toyota Performance Cars. Responsible for cars

Lead Toyota Test Driver Killed In German Crash
Toyota's top test driver, Hiromu Naruse, died today after crashing a
Lexus LFA prototype into a BMW while testing in Germany. The two test

cars — including the 2000GT — since he started working for Toyota in 1963.
