Toyota 86 gets a different face

By Faiming_low on 12 Feb 2015 in New model

Attached Image Toyota released a new variant of the 86 and it is called the Toyota 86 style Cb. Available for booking come April, the car is only meant for sale in Japan and is targeted at the fairer sex. Previewed as a concept at the 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon, the front of the 86 style Cb looks more rounded now and is said to be inspired by Zagato, an independent coach building company whose last car was a 2014 Lamborghini 5-95 Zagato.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Name: "CB". Target demographic: "fairer sex"

 

Maybe the Japanese do understand Hokkien after all. [laugh]

It kinda reminds me of a FTO.

Probably cb for Chibi which can mean small/cute in Japanese.

Looks too feminine. "Cb" probably means Char Bor. LoL...
