Following hot on the heels of our recent Aurion TRD road test dragged from The Insider’s archives comes the news that Toyota has unveiled its TRD Aurion Pro-Factory Xtreme (Pro-FX) drag car. The covers came off at Queensland’s Willowbank Raceway yesterday ahead of its debut outing at this weekend's Australian National Drag Racing Association (ANDRA) Winternationals - the headline event of the 2008 Australian season.

Run by former Australian champion Tony Wedlock and his Ultimate Motorsport team, the TRD Aurion Pro-FX is powered by a turbocharged six-cylinder Toyota engine, produces 1300kW and launches from 0-100km/h in less than one second on its way to a top speed of more than 350km/h.

Toyota Australia motorsport manager Todd Connolly said the TRD Aurion Pro-FX perfectly complemented Toyota Australia's new range of performance-bred TRD-branded road cars.

"Toyota is synonymous with quality, durability and reliability, while TRD has added style, passion and performance to our line-up. Today's unveiling of the Ultimate Motorsport TRD Aurion Pro-FX takes us to a whole new level - this car has performance and excitement by the bucket-load. We are excited to have Tony Wedlock and the Ultimate Motorsport TRD Aurion Pro-FX spearheading our new drag racing program ," Connolly said.

Wedlock, a former Australian Pro Stock Champion, said the car has been designed and built specifically to run in the new Pro-Factory Xtreme (Pro-FX) category, a class aimed at high-performance six-cylinder vehicles.

The experienced national champion said he was looking forward to debuting the TRD Aurion Pro-FX at Australian drag racing's biggest event.

"We are eager to show that as well as good looks, our Ultimate Motorsports TRD Aurion Pro-FX has performance to match. We are looking to push the performance envelope this weekend ," Wedlock said.

To celebrate the launch of the TRD Aurion Pro-FX, Willowbank is holding the Toyota Drag Racing Legends Race for Charity that will see four legends of the sport face-off in TRD Aurion road cars.

Run over two heats and a final, the event will showcase the credentials of the TRD Aurion over the quarter-mile, while also raising money for the winner's chosen charity.
