Car of the Decade, (The Eagle GTP car) - On Track Magazine (Dec 99 issue)
The EAGLE MK III Toyota was voted the car of the decade by On Track Magazine. In On Track’s opinion, the Eagle MK-III was the last of the greatest era of cars in sports car history (GTP) and arguably the greatest Eagle produced by All American Racers.
Designed by John Ward and Hiro Fujimori, the car demonstrated amazing performance for a 2.1 liter, four cylinder Toyota.
Driven by Juan Manuel Fangio II to 2 Drivers and 2 Manufacturers Championships (1992-1993), the Eagle MK III won 23 of the 27 races it entered (17 in a row)
It still holds the outright track records at Daytona International Raceway (Road Course) Time 1:33.875 / 136.521 mph (PJ Jones) and Lime Rock Park - Time: 43.112 / 128.595 mph (PJ Jones).
