Well we have been telling you all that this car has been coming ever since the 2013 Toyota GT-86 was officially revealed last month at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. Today we can make it official as Toyota’s performance division Toyota Racing Development or TRD for short have officially launched the car at the Tokyo Auto Salon. The Tokyo Auto Salon is the largest Japanese’s aftermarket show, think of it as a SEMA type event for the land of the rising sun.
For those of us here in North America who are receiving the car as the Scion FR-S the parts will of course also bolt right on. Modifications include a new front lip and rear trunk-lid, as well as larger, wider and lighter 18-inch wheels, a brake upgrade kit, a suspension lowering and stiffening kit, and a reworked exhaust system.
No mention on pricing or when they will be available however we are hoping that they will be for sale when the car goes on sale later this year. Curiously there was also no mention of a supercharged engine option which makes us think that this option will be included into an entirely new model of the car.
