Aiyaz Mohammed, the owner of Toyota MR2 Turbo with the personalised registration – MADBUL – hopes to test his vehicle’s true potential in the drags later this year.

Mr Mohammed proudly revealed he has done a new setup for his vehicle and is hoping to get some good results in the coming drags.

He will give the drags this weekend a miss though as he has other commitments but keep an eye out for this vehicle in other events in the year.

His red Toyota MR2 is only one of the few factory Turbo MR2s around in Fiji and which is what makes his car all the more special.

Mr Mohammed bought the car three years ago and said “This car was actually a birthday gift to myself bought from my own hard-earned money thus the feeling to drive is always special.”

A network engineer by profession, Mr Mohammed’s passion for cars goes way back.

He has owned a whole range of cars from Skylines to Silvias to Toyotas and a Holden.

“The beauty about having cars as a hobby is that you never get bored – feel the adrenaline and you got to love the smell of rubber,” he said.

While he doesn’t have a favourite car, Mr Mohammed says he would love to own anything with a rear wheel drive setup.

 

Story behind the registration

You might be wondering why a crazy registration for the vehicle as MADBUL.

Mr Mohammed has divided the description into two parts – MAD and BUL.

He says MAD describes the owner/driver while the BUL indicates the car’s strength which is powerful like a BUL.
