it already goes through the tuning box!

The new Toyota GR 86, unveiled very recently, already receives the TOM’s Racing label with spare parts and body kits to improve its look… And certainly its performance!

To comb unveiled last April, the new Toyota GR 86 has already been modified, this time by the Japanese teams of TOM’s Racing.

It is on the occasion of the event Fuji 86 Style in Japan that the Japanese preparer – specialist of the Toyota and Lexus brand – unveiled his complete car. Code name : TOM’s GR86 Concept.

Careful preparation for the GR 86

To begin with, the TOM’s GR86 is painted in bright orange, a color that is not available on the standard GR 86.

Then there is the body kit. This prepared GR86 is clearly a steroid version of the production model.

The car has an extended front spoiler to increase aerodynamics and side skirts that reinforce the aggressive design of the GR86. The biggest change on the GR86 prepared by TOM’s Racing is visible at the rear: the rear bumper has a black coating, fins still in a concern of aerodynamic downforce, and a modified exhaust to 4 outputs mounted in 2 × 2.

Regarding its handling on the ground, the TOM’s GR86 has new TOM’s Cross Speed ​​wheels, much wider, instead of the original wheels. Behind these hides a large modified brake kit. Enough to offer increased braking power.

Without clarification at this time, we don’t know if any changes have been made under the hood. But since the car has big brakes, bigger wheels, and a new exhaust system, there are likely a few tweaks that add more power.

A four cylinder that sings!

As a reminder, under the hood the 2.4 L naturally aspirated four-cylinder flatbed with double direct and indirect injection of the GR 86 offers nearly 235 horsepower maximum power for 250 Nm of torque. Compared to the previous generation, this represents a gain of 35 horsepower and 45 Nm.

The assembly is sent to the rear wheels only via a six-speed manual transmission, or an optional six-speed automatic. The Japanese Coupe completes the 0 to 100 km / h on 6.3 seconds, against 7.4 seconds for the GT86.
