I love it actually. But why is Toyota being cheap and not making the aero pieces out of carbon fiber?!
It's a concept. It's either just for show or they managed to get the weight targets they wanted with the "natural fibres".
I think they withheld the power numbers to not cause an uproar around their unreleased car. That motor is capable of a ton more than 340bhp and they know it.
Of course it is,what 340HP motor does 370ft lb?
18x11 on stock body work?
on the fronts?!
Wow, I just noticed that. The craziest part is the 18x11 fronts if that information is correct. That is the ultimate square setup.
The VLN MKV was running 305/660-18 Pirelli slicks on a square setup.
Oh wow, that gets me very excited. There are very few cars that can run nearly that much tire in the front.
The golden MKIV setup and my Supra is running 18x10 on 285’s and 18x11.5 on 315’s so an extra inch for the MKV is not bad but odd since it’s MacPherson’s.
yeah, i run 18x10 square on my A80, it's wonderfully balanced at the track. I only have 500whp so I don't need absurd drag rear end grip
They´re not being cheap. Porsche is using it too. Natural fibers explained:
" At the Daytona reveal of the new GT4, Eduard Ene, Porsche Motorsport's composites expert, told us that producing the raw materials to make natural fiber takes 75 percent less energy than carbon fiber. Ene also pointed out that natural fiber can be ground down to be reused for different purposes, whereas carbon fiber needs to be burned at a very high temperature to be disposed of. There are functional benefits, too. Carbon fiber is a very strong material, but when it breaks, it splinters dramatically. This natural fiber, according to Ene, has five times better vibration dampening properties than carbon fiber, so it doesn't splinter when hit hard."
This is great. How long until autocrossers fit 335 A7´s?
i love the fact that stock bodywork fits 18x11's! this thing will ROCK in autocross with square 315 Hoosier A7's! the slicks above have 12.1inch section width...315 A7's are already 12.5" lol
Not only that, the CoG is super low which should make quick transitions very stable.
I’ll be at Geneva Motor Show on March 12th. So if nobody did until then, I’ll take some detailed pics for the community. Any wishes?
Pics of air vents possibly. Maybe try to pry some engine numbers out of them.
