The Toyota 86 is just one of those cars that you know will draw massive attention from the aftermarket industry, as buyers will surely want to upgrade the coupe’s appearance and looks. At this week’s 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon, TRD (Toyota Racing Development) presented a first batch of performance and styling goods for the 86 sports coupe.
Toyota’s in-house tuning division has developed a new aerodynamics package with side skirts, a full width front spoiler, a rear apron that includes a diffuser and a boot lid spoiler that go together with a bespoke fuel cap cover and 18-inch black alloy wheels.
Inside, TRD’s offerings include body hugging bucket seats, a push start button, a shift knob and what the company describes as a “Sports Meter Link System” with readings for water temperature, oil temperature and oil pressure.
Key handling features added to TRD’s Performance Line 86 include a reworked and fully adjustable suspension with new front and rear anti-roll bars, a carbon front strut, additional cross-bracing and a stabiliser set, plus a sports brake kit with 6-piston calipers up front and 4-piston at the back and a quad-exhaust system.
