The two kits will debut next month.
In the world of affordable rear-wheel-drive sports cars, it's hard to do better than the 2022 Toyota GR86 and 2022 Subaru BRZ. These two represent the most fun you can have in a new car for under $30,000, but they also represent a blank canvas on which to build. We wouldn't call either design "boring," but compared to what's available on the aftermarket, the stock design is a tad plain. Several companies have already announced body kits for the Toyota, including an RC F-inspired TOM'S kit, a super-wide Rocket Bunny kit, and one from Gazoo Racing, the developers of the GR86.
The GR86 seems well-covered by the aftermarket, but fewer companies have focused on the BRZ. Starting next month, a Japanese company called Kuhl Racing will have the answer for both sports cars.
Kuhl Racing has teased two new body kits that will debut next month at the Tokyo Auto Salon. One will fit the Toyota GR68, and the other is designed for the Subaru BRZ. So far, the company has only shown off CAD drawings, renderings, and unpainted mockups showing rough fitment but from what we can tell, Kuhl Racing knows what it's doing.
Though the GR86 and BRZ are similar cars, the two body kits look unique. Each includes an elongated front end that looks Supra-inspired, plus flared wheel arches, side skirts, rear bumpers, and large wings. The kits look slightly awkward at this stage, but should look more polished with wider wheels and complete paint.
We slightly prefer the BRZ kit, but the GR86 front end is clearly more aggressive out of the two. Kuhl Racing hasn't revealed pricing for either kit, though we assume that information will be revealed at the Tokyo Auto Salon.
These may not be our favorite GR86/BRZ body kits that we've seen thus far, but their existence shows these two will have healthy aftermarket support for owners who want to take their cars to the next level.
