Toyota 86 TRD Edition in Malaysia

Got more than RM250,000 to spend on a car? Here’s another option for fellow Malaysians to consider. Following the hype of the Toyota 86 since last Friday. We got these photos from one of our special friend. The Toyota 86 TRD (Toyota Racing Development) edition or at this stage at least with a TRD bodykit.




If you missed our article on the Toyota 86 TRD earlier, check out what Toyota Racing Development has done to pimp up the all-new Toyota 86. At first glance, the Toyota 86 has been wrap up with Front Spoiler, Side Skirt, Rear Under Spoiler, Rear Trunk Spoiler and a set of 18-inch Aluminium Wheel ‘SF2′ (Forged) as stated on the list from TRD earlier.




However after inspecting the photos, we notice there aren’t any 6 pot red calipers that suppose to be in the TRD package equipped to this particular Toyota 86 TRD. At this stage our guess is Toyota Racing Development parts are all optional. According to the list earlier, the Toyota 86 TRD also suppose to equipped with sports seats and sports meter gauge as well.




From the rear of this Toyota TRD 86, immediately we notice there are 2 exhaust tailpipes on each side of the car, by making it 4 exhaust tailpipes. These exhaust systems should be the High Response Muffler Ver.R ones as stated in the list. As Toyota 86 set a high price from RM243k, do expect the TRD version goes more than RM250,000. For those who wondering, where can you view the Toyota 86 TRD, we got insider news said that it will be displayed in this weekend Super GT 2012 in Sepang International Circuit (9-10 June 2012).
