Even before the production car hits showrooms, the Toyota 86 TRD has been out on track proving its wares.

Not to be outdone by its tricked-up sister car the Subaru BRZ STI, the Toyota 86 TRD shows not only a direction for possible style modifications with its new body kit, side skirts, rear spoiler and black 18-inch alloy wheels but also sports the hardware underneath to match.

TRD has reworked the suspension to focus even more on handling with new front and rear anti-roll bars, a carbon front strut-brace, rear diffuser, additional bracing and a high-response exhaust system that you can hear in the video of the car in action.


While the TRD-spec 86 was first revealed in January at the 2012 Tokyo auto salon, the 147kW/205Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder ‘boxer’ engined production car goes on sale in Australia in June with prices expected to start around the high-$30,000 mark.
