2012 Toyota FT-86 TRD

Toyota FT-86

We still have to wait a few more weeks until we finally get to see the production version of the Toyota FT-86 sports car, but more and more details are sneakily surfacing on the internet. The newest tidbit of information comes from the FT86Club and states that Toyota Racing Development (TRD) will offer a pretty aggressive package for the upcoming sports car.

The new package by TRD will supply a new front spoiler, side skirts, a new rear diffuser, a bootlid spoiler, and a new set of 18" aluminum wheels to jazz up the highly anticipated sports model. The interior will also get a few modifications in new sports seats, a new shift knob, a push start switch, and a sports metering system.

As for the performance updates, the recently leaked 2.0-liter flat-four engine will be joined by a full-length adjustable suspension set, a monoblock caliber kit, a new sports exhaust system with two pipes on each side for a racy look, a door stabilizer, tower bar, sports air filter, sports oil filter, and upgraded brakes. These additions may or may not add a performance boost, but the standard engine produces 197 HP at 7,000 rpm and 150 lb-ft of torque at 6,600 rpm, so expect output to be somewhere along the same numbers.

The new Toyota FT-86 TRD is undoubtedly a response to the recently announced b>BRZ STI Concept ; which model would you prefer?

Is it, a sports car or a simple sedan only? Anyway, I must say that I’m kind of impressed on its aesthetic detailing and style. However, the engine of this one that can only deliver an output of 197 hp is not really so striking on it.

I wonder if what will be the interior of this one, will look like? I hope that it is impressive as well. Anyway, I think that they should have boosted more the engine of this FT-86, I just really don’t think that it could bring a great performance on it.

The engine specification of this Toyota FT-86 is kind of impressive, but it’s not really enough to beat its competitor. Anyway, I love the simplicity that this one had.

The exterior design of this Toyota is kind of impressive, and I must say that it is already looking good on its body paint. Anyway, I wanted to see also the few modifications of its interior.

What’s with the flat four engine of this one? Is it really good enough for this Toyota FT-86? Because if I’m not mistaken, in spite of having a decent appearance, it is one of their sports cars. Well, I hope it could give a better performance on it.

The hygienic and decent body paint that they used on it, is absolutely looking great on this one. I also noticed that the wheels of it, is looks so cool. I just only hope that the engine of this one, will be quite good enough for it.

I wondered if the engine on this one, can surely give a better performance on it, that can only deliver 197 HP at 7,000 RPM. However, I must say that I love the hygienic body paint, and it looks so decent at it.
