Tuning legend TOM'S has released its full catalog of GR 86 parts.
The Toyota 86 has proven Toyota's commitment to the enthusiast. When it debuted, the lack of power was lamented by some, but the package was meant to promote driving enjoyment. More than that, it was easily modifiable, and Toyota's HQ in Japan has doled out cars to some of the world's top tuners to work on. The second generation GR 86 is no different, and we've already seen some quality designs coming out of HKS and several other tuners, including Toyota's in-house performance department, Gazoo Racing. But one of our favorites to come out of Japan has to be the TOM'S GR86 Concept. We've previously seen the development car in action, but the Japanese tuner has now released the full catalog of GR 86 parts for the public, and we're in love.
Specializing in Toyota products, TOM'S has worked on everything from the Corolla to the Lexus IS. The production kit for the GR 86 is dubbed TOM'S GR 86 Sports. Much of the original concept's design has been carried over to the final parts catalog, with subtle overfenders for the front and rear, front, rear, and side diffusers, a trunk lid spoiler that mimics the carbon ducktail on the Toyota GR Supra A91-CF Edition, and all sorts of garnishings for the air intakes.
But the showstopper is the exhaust. "TOM'S barrel" is the name of the system, with obvious influence taken from the likes of the Lexus RC F. It features four exhaust tips, double-stacked in a trapezoidal fashion for a truly menacing look and finished in vivid blue when you spec titanium, although stainless steel is also available. For those who prefer a slightly more subtle look, a two-pipe setup is also available, with traditional round pipes peeking out from within the rear diffuser.
More than just an exterior kit, you can also get a performance steering wheel with rev indicator lights, carbon fiber shift knobs, and a slew of interior trim elements. TOM'S also sells 18- and 19-inch wheel options, a Super Ram II air filter kit, electronic throttle controller, various suspension braces, and a sports suspension kit to enhance handling.
It's not exactly cheap though. US prices haven't been listed, but the full body kit with TOM'S barrel exhaust costs just shy of $4,700 at current exchange rates and the four-barrel titanium exhaust on its own costs $2,300. The suspension kit is around $1,600, while the brake kit is a hefty $4,800.
