2009 Toyota Tf109 Formula One Car Crossing The Auction Block

2009 Toyota TF109 Formula One car crossing the auction block

Collectors who find limited-edition hypercars with a multi-million-dollar price tag a little bit too stodgy will soon have a rare opportunity to add a real Formula One car to their fleet. Toyota donated the first example of the last car it built to compete in the series to a charity auction whose proceeds will go towards COVID-19 relief.

Wearing chassis number 01, this TF109 participated in a battery of tests leading up to the 2009 Formula One season. It was driven by several professional pilots, including Henkie Waldschmidt, Jarno Trulli and Timo Glock, but it never lined up on the starting grid of a race. Instead of stuffing it in a dimly-lit museum, Toyota passed the TF109 to Pirelli who used it as a high-speed test mule for tires. It was stripped of its red and white livery and put in the hands of well-known pilots (including Romain Grosjean) until it finally retired in 2011 after covering about 30,000 kilometers (approximately 19,000 miles), which is enormous for a Formula One car.

Animal Crossing For Nintendo Switch Delayed To 2020

Animal Crossing For Nintendo Switch Delayed To 2020

There’s some bad news today for those who have been waiting for Animal Switch to arrive on the Nintendo Switch. The company confirmed during its E3 Direct event today that the Animal Crossing New Horizons title, which is meant to be a Switch-exclusive, isn’t going to be released for the console until next year.

Nintendo had previously confirmed that this game would be released for the console in 2019. It’s evidently not able to make the deadline and has thus decided to delay the release. The company has decided to take the edge off this delay by releasing a new trailer for this game which shows our hero sprinting around an island to collect materials and make tools.

Animal Crossing Has Been Announced For The Nintendo Switch

Animal Crossing was first launched way back 2001 where we have seen various iterations of the game since, with the most recent being Pocket Camp which launched on mobile, earning Nintendo a cool $50 million since. For those who want to play the game on a bigger screen, you’ll be pleased to learn that during Nintendo’s Direct presentation, the company has confirmed that Animal Crossing will be coming onto the Switch.

Unfortunately details about the game are scarce at the moment, but what we do know is that the game has been pegged for a release in 2019. Many gamers have been begging Nintendo to release Animal Crossing on the switch. After all it is one of the classic Nintendo titles, so it was weird when there was no announcements made when the Switch was announced, or during E3 2018 when the company announced a bunch of different games.

Nintendo Files New 'animal Crossing' Trademark

Nintendo Files New 'Animal Crossing' Trademark

Last year Nintendo launched Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on mobile which is the latest addition to the Animal Crossing franchise. For those who enjoy this lighthearted and cute game, you might be interested to learn that Nintendo has filed for a trademark for a potentially new Animal Crossing game.

The trademark was filed in Japan, but based on the translation of the trademark filing, it describes the title as being "software for a home video game machine, portable electronic game machine, and smartphone devices." Given that we've already seen the release of Pocket Camp on mobile, we doubt that the next title will also be for mobile, and that perhaps we could be looking at a new Animal Crossing title for the Nintendo Switch.

The crossover makes its official debut at the Geneva Show, and it looks just aggressive enough to be unique, but not so strange that it will scare away the average buyer.
