Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Levin Ae101


Recommended Posts

Hello all. I'm going to buy my friend's Levin, it's a 91, gt apex version, and I was wondering if anyone can help me out. I've been looking for specs on the car (she doesn't know anyhing about it and neither do I), and the differences between the engine years. She's giving me a good deal on it, and I don't want to pass it up. I've never owned any toyota, and I would like some info on the model. It's got the dual exhaust, and the previous owner before her dressed up the engine a little, and added an intimidator cone air filter. Nothing else besides that has been added. It's got a really stiff suspension ( I took it for a drive), but it doesn't look aftermarket, and it's an automatic. Any help about the car's specs and potential would be great!!

No, it doesn't look like the one in the pic. It doesn't have pop-up lights, and the body is slightly rounder with a spoiler. It says Levin on the front grill, with apex gt on the both sides of the coupe doors. I can try to get pics from her to make it easier, I'll see what I can do. Oh yeah, it's a right hand drive straight from Japan. I hope I could find out it's potential, any help would be great!

the one in the pictures is based on the ae92.the car u are describing is the ae101 levin gt apex. i know the ae101 levin. it was made with the silvertop 20v 4age engine and the last ever iteration of the 4agze (supercharged).i think u have the silvertop engine extremegiants.

silvertop, as far as i know, was made between '92 and '95. even though your car is a '91, it could be a silvertop. the engine will be silver,and will say "twincam 20"

on it.

toyota claims 160 bhp for the silvertop engines, but in reality, they are around 140 bhp over here.

they are a great car. buy it if u can.

shout up if u need more info

mine was a corolla 20v, which i understand is even rarer than the levin over in the uk. i sold it a few weeks ago. it broke my heart selling it, but i got a good price, and sure, i can always get another one at some stage.

it wasnt highly modified. i had 17" kosei pentas, uprated brakes and suspension,sony head unit and md changer, and it had a 2" custom exhaust from the manifold back.... no restrictions

its the same engine as the one in the levin (a silvertop) so i can tell u that they are beautiful to drive hard

hmm...i'll never find one in the u.k, if i did i would keep for a long long time. i might not even sell it i mean it is soo damn rare to have a DBM car with a 20v

20v corollas were jdm only. if u want one so bad, just import it straight from japan,theres nothing stopping u. you dont have to wait untill u see one for sale.

they are packed with goodies aswell. air con, climate, leather steering wheel and gearknob, sports seats, electric everything, including electric folding mirrors, strut brace, foglights, bodykit....and obviously the throttle bodies etc.....

in fact ,thinking about the car again makes me miss my one
