One after the other, Toyota's local divisions are presenting new accessories for the 86 rear-wheel drive sports coupe, which is also known as the GT86 in Europe and the Scion FR-S in North America.
After the Five:AD aero package in the States for the FR-S, and a selection of styling parts from Toyota Europe for the GT 86, it's time for the brand's Australian arm to create a comprehensive aero package for the 86.
The kit consists of a new front bumper skirt with vertical fins to control air entering the front grille and dual canards at 12-degree angles, side skirts, a rear bumper apron housing a diffuser plus a large rear spoiler with horizontal 'winglets' on the uprights.
According to the Japanese automaker, the package not only gives the 86 a racier appearance but is fully functional as it has been designed to reduce aerodynamic drag and increase downforce for improved handling, while maintaining the vehicle's 0.27 drag coefficient.
The aero package is available exclusively to the high-grade GTS model regardless of the transmission choice, with pricing set at AU$3,000 (US$3,008 or €2,400).
