CLOSE UP: Toyota 86

In this blog entry, I'm posting some Close up photos of Toyota 86.  Like what I said in my previous post, I was pissed by "SOMBONG" and "take it or leave it" attitude by the 2 sales advisors in UMW Toyota Sect 19, PJ 3S Branch.  As a result, I won't review this car since NO TEST DRIVE allowed.

I Only want to highlights that this car's FULLY IMPORTED from Japan and comes with 7 Airbags (unlike CKD Camry 2.5's 4), Advanced VSC with LSD, Elec power steering, 6 speed manual or 6 speed Automatic.  Claimed Max Speed: 226km/h manual and 210km/h auto.  0-100km/h in 7.6secs for manual and 8.2 secs for Auto.  Max Power: 200ps@7000rpm and max torque: 205Nm@6400-6600rpm.  This means it's a High revving FR (Front engined, rear wheel drive car) with 53:47 balance achieved.

 Instead, I'm going to let the pictures do the talking.  Well there's a saying a picture's worth 1000 words, here are the photos:

215/45R17 tyres with lightweight alloy rims

 Above and below: Side windows and rear lights a tribute to 1960s Toyota GT2000.

Smallish but usable boot space

 Optional 6 speed sequential automatic.  RM249,000.  Manual for RM243,000.

 Above: Dashboard reminds me of Porsche Boxster.  Esp. the Centre Air vents.
 Above: Pillarless door windows.  Below: Rear seats strictly for kids below 10.

 Above: Paddle shift and Auto cruise topped with "Red stitching" everywhere.

Above: Legendary Double wishbone rear Suspension and chassis, inspired by Corolla Trueno AE86.  Below: Boxer engine inspired by Toyota S800. This engine's jointly developed with Subaru.  Subaru provide the Boxer engine while Toyota provide the D4S Direction injection Dual VVTi.

That's all folks, thanks for having the time and patience to read this blog entry.  My original work (Other than the Videos.  Here's my parting videos:
