Given the model number "MS-186H-CA", it carries all the special customizations you'd except from an ace's personal suit.
Its name: The Char Custom Auris!
The shocking "Char Aznable x Toyota" project's details were finally released at Chara-Hobby 2012 on August 25th. At the historical moment on that day, Toyota's booth was packed with throngs of onlookers.
As the cover was drawn back unveiling the matte-red Char Custom Auris with Zeon insignia and caution markings, little could be heard over the sound of camera shutters.
From its militaristic matte red to its Zeon emblems, the roof-mounted blade antenna, and vernier-styled diffuser and built-in muffler, it looked every inch the Char Custom. The waves of cameramen angling for a picture of the Char Custom Auris continued through the end of the show on the 26th.
At the Toyota booth, decked out entirely in red, Char's history, famous quotes, Gunpla of his mobile suits, and lineart were on display. Attendees also tried their hands at the "Char Test", producing impressive results.
Shuichi Ikeda (Char) and Toru Furuya (Amuro) were among the guests on the Char Aznable x Toyota stage. They performed their moving confrontation from Mobile Suit Gundam II: Encounters in Space live on stage.
A report from the stage show will be posted soon. Keep an eye out for more info!
