Toyota GT-86 14R-60 Limited Edition is Production Version of Griffon Concept
Toyota GT-86 14R-60 Limited Edition is a production continuation of the Griffon concept which was revealed last year. In fact, it is a super lightweight GT-86 which won't be seen elsewhere but Japan. Just like the Griffon, this limited edition Toyota is driven by 2.0-liter boxer poweplant. There are no enhancements in its power, meaning that it generates 197 horsepower (145 kW) and 205 Nm (151 pound-feet) of maximum torque.
Nevertheless, the engine was touched slightly and now has new air filter, engine oil cooler, a reinforced clutch, lightweight flywheel, and mechanical limited-slip differential from TRD. The transmission here is the six-speed one, but in the case of GT-86 14R-60 it is improved, with different gearing in first and second and an altered final drive ratio.
Furthermore, the suspension of the model has new coilovers, there is also a V-shaped tower brace in the front and rear. Toyota also took care about the brakes, which were upgraded. In terms of exterior the car is equipped with a body kit that features carbon-fiber roof and huge rear spoiler. 18-inch forged magnesium wheels add to the final look.
The interior of the car gets TRD-branded race seats with four-point harnesses as well as Alcantara. There are no rear seats. This limited edition model will be produced in 100 units only and is intended only for the Japanese market.
