The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the largest motoring garden event in the world, a unique summer weekend that gathers an amazing mix of cars, stars and motor sport ‘cavalry’ to create the most important car culture event in the world. The festival, taking place between 12- 14 July 2013, will be the scene where many brands will show of with their cars. One of them is Toyota, which will present its Toyota GT 86 TRD Griffon Project.
The Toyota GT 86 TRD Griffon Project has been created especially for being driven on track and it is equipped with a TRD mechanical differential, this making it different from the base version that had a Torsen unit. Among the things that change the GT 86 into a race car, a new oil cooler, coilover suspension units and TRD monoblock calipers with race-spec brake pads are worth mentioning.
To make it more aerodynamic, Toyota has considerably reduced the weight of the GT 86. Considerably means it now weights 500 lbs less. This was possible with the help of some carbon fiber doors, hood, roof, rear wing and boot lid. The rear diffuser, the front wing and the bumpers are made from CFRP. The base glass windows have been replaced by lighter polycarbonate units. The GT 86 rides on 18 inch alloys covered in Yokohama Advan tires. Some noticeable elements are the bucket seat, MOMO steering wheel and other TRD products like gauges (oil temp, oil pressure and water temp), push start switch and shift knob. In a short while there will be more details about the vehicle.
