Toyota reveals ultimate 86

Limited-edition coupe costs triple the price of regular model.
Toyota has unveiled a limited-edition sports car described as the ultimate vision of its 86.
       
Developed by Toyota Racing Development and its Gazoo Racing competition arm, the oddly-named 14R-60 coupe features the most comprehensive series of upgrades yet for Toyota's coupe.
                           
The car has a new look anchored by wild aerodynamic modifications that include a massive rear spoiler with adjustable "swan-neck" mounting points, a new front bumper with GT-style carbon-fibre canards and a purposeful rear diffuser with new centre-exit exhaust pipes.
It also has a carbon-fibre roof that leads a weight-saving strategy that includes the removal of rear seats that can no longer be accessed by passengers.
                   
Toyota has thrown out the standard 86's folding seats in favour of uncompromising rigid units with huge bolsters for the driver and passenger, along with a steering wheel and gearknob cloaked in grippy Alcantara with orange-coloured trim.
       
The car has no stereo, but air conditioning remains in place.
Toyota plans to sell 100 examples of the 14R-60 coupe, all painted in crystal pearl white.

    Like the seats, that's about all. Can't see it being worth the big price increase. Slap a stupid engine in Toyota!!! Why must they always be so conservative.
