Toyota's new R&D facility to include mini Nurburgring

By Faiming_low on 26 Feb 2018

Attached Image Toyota is said to be building a new Research & Development facility that will take up some four square kilometers of Japan’s Aichi prefecture.

As reported by Carscoops, the facility will have 11 test track and one of them will try to copy the straights, curves, dips, and climbs of the Nordschleife in parts. Set to be around 5.3km, the track will also feature a 76m change in elevation changes, as compared to the 300m change between the highest and lowest points on the Nurburgring.

Costing nearly S$4 billion to build, some of the facilities are expected to be ready by early next year, but the rest of the complex will only be operational in 2023.

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?
