It didn't take long, and nobody's surprised: Toyota's new 86 coupe has been given a makeover by the company's TRD racing and tuning arm, debuting at the Tokyo Auto Salon this week.

Those hoping for a supercharger kit will have to look elsewhere however, with the list of mods limited to styling and handling bits.

On the outside, there are new bumpers and skirts, new 18-inch wheels and four exhaust-tips capping off a high-flow system. Inside, you get sports seats and TRD-emblazoned instruments.

Underneath is a pair of front and rear anti-roll bars, a carbon-fibre front strut-brace and additional cross-member bracing.

The TRD styling and handling packages will hit the Japanese market this year, and we can likely expect most of the bits to be offered through Toyota Australia when the 86 makes its local debut in the coming months.


2000GT Electric Vehicle

" class="small img-responsive"/>

Toyota's rare and rather legendary 2000GT coupe has been transformed into a "Solar Electric Vehicle" by Japan's Crazy Car Project.

Tearing out the Yamaha-tuned straight-six, the team dropped a 120kW electric motor under the bonnet, drawing energy from a lithium-ion battery and a little extra juice from a bonnet-mounted solar panel.

In the Alcantara-trimmed cabin, the engineers have given the 2000GT SEV the necessary gadgets to keep an EV running, along with a number of cosmetic tweaks to highlight the car's futuristic powertrain.

Crazy is right.
