UK Search for Oldest Carina

Toyota GB plc is looking for the UK’s oldest British-built Carina E, The Daily Telegraph reported on 22 October.

The carmaker is celebrating 20 years of production in the UK by holding a competition to demonstrate how durable its cars can be.

The owner of the oldest car will be rewarded with the use of a new Burnaston-built Auris hatchback for one week.

The first Toyota Carina E was produced at the firm’s plant in Burnaston, Derbyshire, in December 1992. About 17,000 of the vehicles remain on UK roads today.
