We’ve heard a lot of people criticizing Liberty Walk for failing to update its offerings sticking to the same flashy but overused wide-body kits .
Apparently, there’s still strong demand for them, as the Japanese tuner refuses to change its…tune.
So, like it or not, the Toyota 86 is their latest project. The compact sports car can be equipped with two body kits, both of them including aggressively restyled front and rear bumpers, aprons, the brand’s trademark bolt-on fenders, and either a boot lid spoiler or a massive wing at the rear.
Depending on the parts you choose, the kit, which is made from FRP and suits the Subaru BRZ as well, costs between $4,470 and $5,340. Of course, that doesn’t include the new wheels, nor the air suspension, for which enthusiasts will have to shell out another $7,900.
This specific Toyota 86 demo car has had its exterior adorned with red stripes and decals that contrast the black body.
You may have notice the roll cage, which makes you wonder if this car’s 2.0-liter boxer engine has been fiddled in any way. Not by Liberty Walk, because their work revolves around visual upgrades, but by another company, perhaps?
If that’s what your looking for, there are many tuners out there willing to turbocharge the four-pot mill. And if that’s not enough, then you can always go for a heart transplant, though if you want to play it safe, you’re better off waiting for the second-gen Toyota 86 that’s said to arrive in 2021 with more oomph under its hood.
