Uniqueness and ability, which she had made fast sports car Toyota triggers release phenomenon and continues to be remembered to this day. But, as usual beautiful moments did not last long. Aware that in order to obtain economies of scale in the production of a model, many aspects that need to be taken into account. Model for mass and can be sold in high volumes to be addressed. While the product for a few fans will easily forget. It is no wonder if Toyota has not built sports cars such as CELICA cheap, Supra or Levin as he had done in the 1980′s. Segments were left so long without a vacuum filled by any of the products that can stimulate appetite real fans to buy a Toyota car. Initial D
Fortunately, since the grandson of Toyota’s founder took over the company, the way forward has changed. Concept models again paying attention to aspects of driving pleasure and dynamic re-built. Changes in the real world managed to make Toyota looked back.The most significant example of the concept model Toyota FT86 certainly makes debut at Tokyo Motor Show 2009. Since then, fans have been as if impatient to wait for the end product. Waiting is missed when Toyota introduced the Toyota officially 86 on Tokyo Motor Show 2011. To build a 86, also known as the Hachi-roku in the Japanese language, the three models sport Toyota previously used as a reference. 86 actually inspired by the legacy of the success of Toyota models AE86 Levin / Trueno which was built in the 1980s. many AE86 fame assisted by a series of comics, animation and Initial-D movie. So, the demand for machinery is not in play. Do not be surprised if you are forced to withdraw money amounted to RM40, 000 for cars of the 1980s. That is the price for a car that had already reached legendary.
addition AE86, DNA 86 also blending characteristics of two iconic sport model of Toyota Sports 800 Toyota and Toyota 2000GT. From Toyota Sports 800, driving dynamics formula FR (front-engine rear-wheel drive) and applied to 86 Boxer engine. While Toyota 2000GT is more of a styling aspect, especially the window profile and design of a coupe.86 development is the result of collaboration with Subaru Toyota (a division of Fuji Heavy Industries, FHI) skilled in the production of high-performance sports sedan. Version 86 for Subaru is BRZ. Among the differences between the two front suspension BRZ is said to be much harder than 86. To ensure the operation of 86 really good, extensive tests were carried out in Japan, Europe and North America. In fact, not a bit of time spent by a team of Toyota engineers in circuit Nürburgring, Germany to ensure that these machines offer the ride and handling quality grade A. 86 is built on a new platform for low and aerodynamic. It employs the aerodynamic concept called “sandwich concept”. Meaning, the car was pushed into the streets from the top, bottom and sides. 86, thus providing a high enough level of stability. Co-operation between Toyota and Subaru are also extended to the construction of engines for 86. Common aspirations of the Boxer engine (Naturally aspirated) is the result of knowledge in the production of Toyota and Subaru sports car. The last time Toyota Boxer engine with four flat design is at the Toyota Sports 800 model. Boxer engine was chosen because it is able to offer the power of a strong low end torque and more linear power generation. Boxer engine ranking is low. It thus contributes to the low point of gravity, an important factor for the handling and stability. jentara dream I could test it for three more rounds at Sepang International Circuit (SIC), a day before its official launch was held. environmentally friendly tires
What do I can tell, 86, may make you not care for speeding on the track all day. Engine power and dynamic handling can really make anyone addicted to explore every corner in the SIC.
What is interesting about the 86 is the machine does not require high-performance tires to highlight its performance. In fact, the task can be handed over to the green tire size 215/45R17 without any problems.To meet the needs of different buyers, UMW Toyota Motor offers a variant of 86 six-speed manual and automatic. 86 does not compromise the security level. In passive, 86 drivers and passengers are protected by seven airbags. Not satisfied with the steering column and pedalnya also be ‘folded’ in the event of an accident. 86 is also fitted with the latest vehicle safety systems include ABS on all four wheels, as well as Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), traction Control (TRC) and Vehicle Stability Control ( VSC).

the price is RM243, 000 (automatic) and RM249, 000 for manual transmissions, 86 non- for all people as they see fit. In fact, no less the view that the model is actually overprice.Still, there are 30 units of 86 owners. UMW Toyota Motor is aiming to sell 86 140 units for the second quarter of this year. I do not see such a big problem at all. Wrong, wrong, numbers that can be achieved in a short time. For those who can not afford it now, do not be sad before. The reason, the 86 Toyota project engineer, Tetsuya Tada told 86 is the middle of a sports car. Meaning, there will be entry level sports car and premium from Toyota. Unfortunately, when the time will come, no one knows. So, many, plenty of prayer.
