After a long run with the MR-4TC SD (shaft drive), Yokomo is going the way of belt drive with the new MR-4 TC BD, which predictably means, "belt drive." Car Action Magazine just learned of this new touring car from Yokomo, but we're warned that the car pictured is a prototype. Yokomo's goal with the new machine when it reaches production, is to have a car that appeals to drivers that want the best equipment available. It apparently is for those with a fat wallet too, reportedly selling for 53,130 Yen, which would put it in the $500+ range in the US.
