Toyota GT86 TRD Griffon Project debuts at Goodwood

After unveiling the Toyota GT86 last years event, Toyota is back at the Festival of Speed with the GT86 TRD Griffon Project, created by Toyota Racing Developments.

The GT86 TRD Griffon Project is designed specifically for track driving with modifications done to reduce the weight, strengthen the chassis and introduce TRD accessories.

The bonnet, roof, doors, boot lid and rear wing are made from lightweight carbon fibre, while bumpers, wider front wings and rear diffuser are made using carbon fibre reinforced plastic. Polycarbonate material is used for windows instead of glass.

The interior features TRD driver’s bucket seat, gear shift knob, ignition button, Momo steering wheel, Takata seatbelts, oil pressure and water temperature gauges.

Under the bonnet is the stock 2.0-litre boxer engine with 200 horsepower, but for improved performance the standard Torsen limited-slip differential has been replaced by a TRD mechanical LSD and the final gear ratio has been shortened to 4.8:1.
