The TRD Aurion Pro-Factory Xtreme (Pro-FX) drag car was finally unveiled today at Queensland's Willowbank Raceway and it's a seriously quick car.
The 350km/h dragster is heading out to the 2008 Winter nationals (Australia's biggest drag racing event) soon, where it will put all 1300kW to use. Yes that's not a typo, 1300kW of power push the Aurion from 0-100km/h in less than one second!
Although you might question the relation between the Pro-FX and the actual TRD Aurion, given the drag car is rear-wheel drive while the Supercharged road going version is driven via the front, Toyota Australia motorsport manager Todd Connolly believes the Pro-FX "perfectly complements" Toyota Australia's new range of performance-bred TRD-branded road cars.
"Toyota is synonymous with quality, durability and reliability, while TRD has added style, passion and performance to our line-up, today's unveiling of the Ultimate Motorsport TRD Aurion Pro-FX takes us to a whole new level - this car has performance and excitement by the bucket-load." Connolly said.
CarAdvice is currently road testing the TRD HiLux, stay tuned for a full review next week.
