2022 Toyota GR 86 Teased By HKS With Supercharger Kit

Nicely, that did not choose also extended. Toyota unveiled the next-era 86 a few of months ago and now just one of the most reliable tuners in Japan is announcing an update application. At a principle stage for now, the GR 86 HKS reveals off a a lot more aggressive physique with a huge rear wing and further aero bits for that boy-racer vibe.

Much like its predecessor, the new 86 is shaping up to be a well known car or truck amid tuners and HKS is eager to deliver an early preview. Tailor made wheels and an upgraded suspension are on the “to do” checklist, and so is a lightweight exhaust procedure probably unlocking a couple further horses. Inside of, a pair of Bride bucket seats will deliver higher lateral guidance.  

The spotlight of HKS’ new package deal will be a supercharger kit to choose the flat-4 over and above the stock 228 horsepower and 184 pound-ft (249 Newton-meters) of torque. The new GR 86 is now 23 hp and 28 lb-ft (38 Nm) a lot more highly effective than its predecessor though delivering the total electric power considerably tuner. It goes devoid of declaring aftermarket professionals are nervous to get their hands on the new 2.4-liter horizontally opposed 4-pot and find out its tuning possible.

To get an strategy about how a lot electric power HKS is seeking to extract, the GT2 supercharger procedure took the first-gen 86 with its scaled-down 2.-liter motor to 298 hp and 233 lb-ft (316 Nm). Logic tells us the modified motor will function with the conventional 6-velocity manual gearbox at the pretty minimum, with the tuner also quite possibly making an attempt to cater to those who will go for the optional 6-velocity vehicle.

Any possible sizzling derivatives of the GR 86 made by Toyota are not likely to incorporate pressured induction given that the rear-wheel-push coupe would then move on the foundation Supra’s toes. The entry-degree edition delivers 255 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) from its turbocharged 2.-liter motor, and logic tells us there will generally be a hole in between the two to stay clear of cannibalization.

Proprietors will have to rely on the aftermarket scene after once again for extra oomph, which will also be manufactured accessible for the GR 86’s sister car or truck, the BRZ. Subaru has now made reviewed some STI-branded sporty visible bits for the JDM edition of the very affordable sports activities car or truck, that includes 18-inch BBS cast wheels and a carbon fiber rear wing.
