How can you possibly not like the look of the TRD Aurion?
Three writers at Car Advice including myself have written reviews on Toyota’s controversial TRD Aurion and I was the only to sing the car’s praises.
It’s probably an age thing. I’m over 40 and Paul and Alborz are under 30. That must be it.
Editor's note and update:
Since many of you are still missing the update we ran on the story, I thought I'd clear the air on this issue.
One of our readers had informed CarAdvice last week of a crash involving a silver TRD Aurion in Melbourne, this was published alongside the report from Toyota that the TRD Aurion range had been withdrawn from sale.
It was only yesterday we reported on glimpses of a second more luxurious TRD Aurion, and now only a day later Toyota have officially unveiled their TRD Aurion line up.
The TRD Aurion range comprises of two model grades - the 3500S (Sports) and 3500SL (Sports Luxury). Both come with a venomous supercharged 3.5L V6 engine producing 241kW and 400Nm at 4000rpm mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift.
These pictures were taken today (by Mr Paul Maric) of what we believe is the Toyota Racing & Development (TRD) Aurion.
Looking Good Toyota! The TRD Aurion is set to come with a supercharged V6. Given that the current Aurion puts out 200kW of power, the TRD version should be one hell of a car!
