Toyota Shows New TRD Toyota 86 14R60

This is the new TRD Toyota 86 14R60 special edition which has been revealed for the Japanese domestic market (JDM). The 14R60 is set up to hit the track, straight from the box. It features various component upgrades inside and out, including vast aero enhancements such as carbon fibre wings front and rear, special wheel arch flares and side skirts, and a chunky diffuser at the back.

The exterior also gets a carbon fibre roof to help reduce weight and the centre of gravity, a centre-outlet exhaust system, and some 18-inch lightweight forged wheels made from magnesium to help reduce unsprung mass and improve agility.

There have been some modifications to the mechanical side of things, including a high-flow TRD air intake system for the engine and a corresponding air filter, as well as a fresh oil cooler to optimise engine performance. Unfortunately, no changes are made to the overall outputs of 147kW and 205Nm.

Despite the lack of engine power upgrades, the 14R60 gets a lightweight flywheel to improve response, a triple-puck TRD clutch along with a short-shift gear lever. There’s also a mechanical 1.5-way limited-slip differential for maximum traction. To improve handling and agility Toyota has fitted up a rear V-brace, adjustable monotube coil-over suspension, upgraded rear trailing arms and front toe control arms, and some beefier bushes to increase rigidity. Further than that, there’s a serious four-piston front and two-piston rear braking package with two-piece rotors.

Inside the cabin, the rear bench is completely removed to save weight, while the front seats are replaced with racing Bride seats with harness belts. Some parts of the dashboard is also replaced by carbon fibre panels, with the radio system removed, along with a few TRD racing bits and pieces. We want to try this car out for sure…..but will it arrive here officially? We think not for now…….waiting for parallel importers to fuel our desire.
