Auto enthusiasts already know that the Toyota 86 is a 2+2 sports car developed by Toyota and Subaru. It’s manufactured at Subaru’s Gunma assembly plant, and known for its naturally-aspirated boxer engine, front-engined, rear-wheel-drive configuration, 53/47 front/rear weight balance and low center of gravity. One aspect that could use some work is the body, and tuning shop Artisan Spirits has a Supra-inspired kit that should do the trick.
Their latest kit shows the Toyota 86 with flared front / rear wheel to give it a mean stance, a custom front bumper, complete with a black plastic splitter, revamped rear bumper, quad tailpipes, black wheels, and most important of all, a large rear fixed wing to finish off the look. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability.
On a side note, did you know that this vehicle also draws inspiration from Toyota’s earlier AE86? That’s right, the vehicle featured in the Japanese anime Initial D. It’s a small, light, front-engine/rear-drive Corolla variant widely popular for Showroom Stock, Group A, and Group N, Rally, Club and drift racing.
