Toyota 86 14R60

Toyota is the kind of company which has unique ideas to design amazing cars and to satisfy even the most difficult client. One of their representative models is the Toyota GT 86 which has been long expected by everyone until it was released. Maybe this is why the company emphasizes it so much lately. After creating the so called Griffon Project the Japanese have recently introduced the Toyota 86 14R60, which is in fact, inspired by the already mentioned project.

The Toyota 86 14R60 features different bumpers, updated side skirts and extended fender flares. The model also has canards, a carbon fiber roof and a rear diffuser. Other notable elements include a rear wing, a center-mounted dual exhaust system and a set of 18-inch forged magnesium wheels. Inside the vehicle there are lightweight sport seats, carbon fiber trim and Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, orange contrasting stitching, TRD-branded sill plates and special floor mats.

The Toyota 86 14R60 is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which has a few upgrades such as an optimized air intake, a high-flow air filter and an extra oil cooler.  The changes don’t seem to have any effects, at least not when the engine's output is concerned. This still remains 200 PS (147 kW) and 205 Nm (151 lb-ft) of torque. However, there’s also a bonus with the engine. It works linked to an upgraded six-speed manual transmission which has a lightweight fly wheel, a high-performance clutch and a quick-throw shifter. The Japanese vehicle also features beefier brakes and a limited slip rear differential. It will come as a limited edition with 100 units to be manufactured, each having a starting point of ¥6,300,000 ($57,830 / €45,870 / £36,065).
