Toyota “Aygo Crazy”: 200Hp RWD Concept to Premiere in London

| |
Making its public debut at the British International Motor Show in London at the end of July, the Aygo Crazy that we first told you about here is a one-off model, fettled with the same 1.8 VVT-i unit that powered the final generation Celica and MR2 Roadster, rear-mounted and driving the rear wheels through the Roadster’s five-speed manual gearbox. The addition of a Toyota Motorsport turbo conversion kit boosts power output to 200Hp and torque to 240Nm

The Aygo Crazy gets no electronic handling aids, no power steering and no ABS. What it does get is a set of custom-made body, 17-inch alloys and beefy Goodyear 225/45 rubber along with a carbon fibre rear wing taken directly from the 200mph race cars in the American Champ Car series, purpose-built sports seats with four-point safety harnesses and a full roll cage. The suspension comes straight from the MR2 Roadster, with MacPherson struts front and rear qand adjustable Tein dampers while the front and rear track are one inch wider than on a standard Aygo. -Continued

Weighing in at just 1,050kg (approx 2,200 lbs), Aygo Crazy is capable of going from zero to 100km/h (62mph) in 5.7sec and on to an estimated top speed of 127mph or 204 km/h.
