2013 Tokyo Auto Salon: Toyota 86 TRD Griffon Concept

Toyota’s default tuning house TRD (Toyota Racing Development) is set to bring out a track version of the hugely successful Toyota 86 sports car (Scion FR-S) at the upcoming 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon.

Called the Toyota 86 TRD Griffon, Toyota recently tested the concept at the Tsukuba Circuit in Japan where it lapped the track at an incredible lap time of 1:01:872, half a second quicker around the circuit than a Ferrari 458 Italia.

Toyota has remained tight lipped about the 86 TRD Griffon other than saying that the sports coupe will be equipped with a track oriented suspension setup, sports exhaust system and chasis stiffening and lightening components.

The 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon will be held from 11th to 13th January at Chiba, Japan.
