The most hardcore factory version of the Toyota 86 is here

Attached Image Good news! Toyota has just released the most hardcore factory version of the 86. It is created by Toyota Techno Craft, a subsidiary of Toyota Japan and also the developers from Toyota Racing Development (TRD). Bad news is none of the 100 units will be coming here since it is only meant for its own market. Oh well.

Attached Image Anyway, what's new in this Toyota 86 16R40? For starters, you get a new aerodynamic front bumper with canards. 
Attached Image Fenders get wider to accommodate the new forged magnesium 18-inch rims which are then wrapped in special Bridgestone RE-11As
Attached Image The roof gets the carbon treatment while also gaining a more aerodynamic design. 
Attached Image At the rear, a new bumper design complete with center exhaust and diffuser feature.

Attached Image One of my favourite features on 16R40. The swan neck carbon rear wing. 
Attached Image Moving inside, you will spot the delicious new suede steering wheel...
Attached Image plus a equally sexy short shift kit with suede gear knob.
Attached Image TRD bucket seats made by BRIDE, make sure you don't get thrown around. TAKATA 4-point harness can also be had for track day use.
Attached Image This is to remind you what you are in. 
Attached Image No rear seats in here to save some weight so that you can be faster.
Attached Image On the topic of being faster, save for a remapped ECU, shorter revised gearing, a more free-flowing air filter and muffler, nothing has been done to increase power from the 2.0-liter boxer engine. Officially, power and torque remains exactly the same as a normal Toyota 86 which is slightly disappointing.
However, they did try to improve the handling of the 14R60 with around 15 different points of the car like engine bushes and various control arms reinforced and strengthened to make sure the chassis is rock solid.

Attached Image V-shaped front and rear strut bars are also added.
Attached Image Interestingly, a specially strong adhesive has been used to make sure the front and rear windscreens flex even less than originally.
Attached Image New springs and dampers tuned by TRD make sure body control remains composed at all times. They are fully adjustable. 
Attached Image Lastly, to make sure you can slow down when things get a bit too hot, TRD 330mm ventilated and slotted rotors at front plus ventilated and slotted rotors at the rear combined with TRD 6 pot front and 2 pot rear calipers provide the necessary stopping power.

The interior is neat! Car should be like this. Fuss free from electronic.


I bet this will give the driver a great driving pleasure.

"Slightly"? I'd say massively.

Looks very AMG-ish - I like!

"the most aesthetically hardcore factory version of the 86"


Performance wise as per factory settings.


In other words, all dressed up but not much go. What a pity.
