Full of TRD components Limited Ed. Toyota 86 14R 60 gets announced in Japan

The new 14R-60 is inspired by the Griffon Project that made its debut at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Compared with regular 86s, the 14R-60 should be more rigid thanks to:

  • extra body reinforcement, thanks to its aggressive front spoiler, rear diffuser, 18-inch magnesium , large carbonfibre rear wing, wheel arch extensions, more prominent side sills, and carbonfibre roof.
  • a V-brace across the rear bulkhead,
  • a V-brace for the front towers
  • and the use of high-strength glass adhesive.
  • The 14R-60 rides on a variable-height coil-over spring suspension system and features more rigid suspension bushings.
  • including a new air filter,
  • twin central exhausts,
  • a TRD mechanical ,
  • new clutch and flywheel,
  • a short-shifter,
  • and revised gearing for the six-speed manual transmission.
  • the 14R-60?s engine still displaces two litres, churning out the same 147kW of power and 205Nm of torque as stock-standard 86 variants.
  • race-style bucket seats with four-point belts,
  • an Alcantara-clad steering wheel, carbonfibre trim, and yellow piping and highlights.
The -only model is listed at $67,400 AUD.
