Front of 1993 Tommy Kaira M20b exported by Japan Car Direct

It’s not every day you come across a genuine 1993 Tommy Kaira M20b. But Japan Car Direct found this beauty through a Japanese used car auction at a reasonable price and shipped it to an overjoyed enthusiast abroad.

Based on the 1993 Subaru Impreza WRX, a performance-oriented model of World Rally Championship pedigree, this aggressive sports sedan was extensively modified by none other than Tommykaira, the renowned Japanese tuning company.

Founders Tomita and Kaira were so inspired by the intercooled turbo boxer engine in the WRX that they couldn’t resist giving the car a full modification for even more power, better aerodynamics, more competitive handling and a sportier interior.

Subaru, for its part, was so pleased to have these legendary experts extensively tune its new sports model that it allowed them to rebrand it as the Tommy Kaira M20b.

Modified turbo boxer engine

The 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter DOHC boxer engine with turbocharger and intercooler — a modified version of the acclaimed EJ20 engine — delivers exciting acceleration and plenty of practical torque that peaks at 5,300 rpm (33.5 kg-m). Maximum horsepower is 265 PS at 6,300 rpm and you can easily raise it to 297 PS with minor modifications.

The engine is mated with a Tommykaira-tuned 5-speed manual transmission and a Tommykaira exhaust system that further enhances the great-sounding exhaust note of the WRX. Other Tommykaira features include a top-mounted alloy intercooler, lighter flywheel, turbo timer, special air filter and remapped ECU.

Lightweight, aerodynamic body

Body panels were extensively modified to more closely meet WRC specs. Exclusive Tommykaira parts include a handsome front bumper that is still popularly sold, side skirts, a rear bumper, a big rear spoiler and 17″ alloy wheels. All told, the body weighs less than 1,200 kilograms.

Sporty yet practical handling

The horizontally opposed boxer engine mounted inline with the transmission contributes to a low center of gravity and minimal body roll. Tommykaira added special springs to the firm suspension and optimized it for the AWD system, yet the Tommy Kaira M20b remains practical for everyday city driving.

Sporty interior

While the interior is clearly designed for spirited fun, it is comfortable as well, with conveniences like air conditioning and power windows. Tommykaira features include Recaro-based seats, a carbon fiber center console with three sporty gauges (boost, oil pressure and oil temperature), orange details in the 260km/h speedometer and other meters, a machined aluminum shift knob, and a Tommykaira signature on the partially carbon fiber steering wheel.

Proven authenticity

In Japan as elsewhere, you have to beware of used cars that aren’t what they appear to be. We always closely check the manufacturer build plate and have a professional third party verify not only the vehicle’s condition but its authenticity!

  • 5 star review  I can't recommend JCD enough. Mathew was a fantastic person to work with. As a newbie to the Japanese auctions, I was quite naïve and had far too many questions. Mathew was kind, knowledgeable, and patient through the entire process. My Minicab arrived last week and I am quite pleased. I would not hesitate to work with Japan Car Direct again in the future. Thank you Mathew!! Jay A.

    5 star review  IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting for fairness at auto auctions here in the USA - we own a small dealership. Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit, but he worked through my caution and I’m now very happy to purchase through him. Call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

I dig into everything and am used to fighting not to get taken at local auctions (I own a dealership and believe strongly in integrity). Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust.

    5 star review  I always wanted a Land Cruiser ! Mathew helped me find 2 beautiful trucks from the Japanese auction. Had them delivered to Freeport, TX last week. He was amazing to work with. Fast response time on bids, super easy to work with, he has a lot of experience and answered all questions promptly. Will be working with JCD more in the future to purchase more vehicles !

    5 star review  Very pleased with my experience with JCD. Mat helped me with my purchase of a Honda Beat and its shipping to the port of Baltimore. Everything was seamless and I would (and already have) recommended this company to several friends.

    5 star review  I just wanna thank Matthew and the whole team at Japan Car Direct, they always went above and beyond in making sure their clients are always happy and informed about the vehicles they are purchasing. I am still in the buying process but so far 5/5 definitely. I’ll keep everyone posted when I do find a car!

    5 star review  Do yourself a favor, call Mathew at Japan Car Direct. Let him take the worry about doing business over seas off your plate. Not knowing anything about importing vehicles from Japan, I spent countless hours studying and trying to figure it all out. The headaches were too much! After Mathew walked me through the process it was a piece of cake. We've already bought a couple and are now buying more with complete confidence. Thanks guys, much much appreciated.

  • 5 star review  Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.

    5 star review  Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.

    5 star review  Yoshi and team were patient in helping me find the right car (green 2016 Prius 4WD) and get me through the process. Flawless service, prompt response to communications, on delivery the car was better than expected, very close to new looking. Their recommended partners for shipping and entry into NZ were on the ball too. Highly recommended! Pro tip: don't mess around; decide exactly what you want, then bid to win.
