Het is inmiddels geen geheim meer dat Toyota straks met een opvolger van de GT86 en Subaru met een nieuwe BRZ.
Bij Toyota gaat die voortaan GR86 gaan heten en contacten zeggen mij veel belovende dingen.
Geruchten zoals ze nu zijn:
De wagen zal een 2.4L boxer motor krijgen met 217pk en 240Nm. Hopelijk is de torque dip er straks wel uit. De toegenomen cylinder inhoud zal wel zorgen voor wat meer bruikbaar koppel.
Jammer gevolg daarvan zal wel zijn dat dit ook geen CO2 wonder gaat zijn en de CO2 waarde terug vrij hoog zal zijn.
*BRZ (sister car 86) was rumored to have ended in the current version, but the brand survival was confirmed.
Parts blueprints for the next BRZ / 86 have already arrived at affiliated companies for the full model change in 2020
The power unit is equipped with the newly developed FA24 horizontally opposed 2.4L NA engine. The maximum output is expected to be 220ps / 6600 revolutions and the maximum torque is 24.5kg.m / 6200-6400 revolutions .
The development is led by Subaru led by Kazuhiro Abe, who was the project general manager of Impreza .
*The next BRZ & 86 uses a newly developed platform (separate from the SGP), and the power unit has a horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engine in a vertical layout with rear wheel drive system unchanged
The dual clutch, which had been rumored for a while, was not adopted for the transmission either, and Aisin AW made 6MT / Aisin AI made 6AT
The engine will be increased in displacement from 2.0L to 2.4L, but the tire size will not change and the next BRZ will use 215 / 45R17 as the genuine tire size .
According to Toyota's chief engineer, the launch will be reborn as a sports coupe with performance exceeding GR Supra after 2020, so I am very excited about it.
Toyota Premieres GR Yaris —Toyota Now Accepting Pre-orders for the Special-edition RZ “First Edition” and Special-edition RZ “High-performance First Edition”— The GR Yaris—a sports car based on knowledge and know-how for making it a FIA World Rally Championship winner—was developed by collaborating with professional drivers using various roads around the world to make it a car that would enable anyone to enjoy driving with peace of mind. Vehicle packaging with attention paid to aerodynamics, light weight, and high rigidity 1.6-liter in-line three-cylinder direct-injection turbo engine G16E-GTS developed via the application of knowledge cultivated by competing in numerous motorsports Newly developed “GR-FOUR” sports 4WD system for supporting driving that feels good in all driving situations and that can match the driving style of any driver Chiba, Japan, January 10, 2020–Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) premiered the new GR Yaris—a homologation*1 model born to win the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC)—at the Tokyo Auto Salon*2 today.
Along with aiming to commence sales of the GR Yaris in around summer 2020, Toyota began*3 (from 10:00 a.m. today) accepting online-only*4 pre-orders in Japan for two special editions of the new model—the RZ “First Edition” and the RZ “High-performance First Edition”. Pre-orders will be accepted from January 10 to June 30, or for approximately six months. Special-edition RZ “High-performance First Edition” pre-order model (with options) Learning from competing in the WRC, Toyota developed the GR Yaris together with Tommi Mäkinen Racing*5 from the ground up to be a WRC winner, as an original model of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing’s sports car lineup.
TOYOTA GAZOO Racing, which has been conducting activities to “refine people and refine cars” in the pursuit of making ever-better cars, has—from its entrance in the 2017 Rallye Monte-Carlo in Monaco to the present—come to know, through the WRC, various types of roads regularly used by its customers around the world. Thus, the GR Yaris was developed to be a car that responds to driver demand on all types of roads worldwide. Based on the knowledge and know-how accumulated by TOYOTA GAZOO Racing, the birth of the GR Yaris is the result of giving form to what has been learned from the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Racing Team about how to make cars that are competitive in the WRC, as well as the result of reflecting evaluations by non-Toyota professional drivers from the early stages of development. In short, the GR Yaris is meant to be a car that allows anyone to drive as one wishes with peace of mind.
The GR Yaris employs a sports 4WD platform based on the TNGA*6 approach. Taking feedback from real WRC experiences, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing built the GR Yaris from scratch to achieve a high-rigidity body of highly refined balance while also optimizing front and rear suspension geometry. By combining its platform with the “GR-FOUR” sports 4WD system, efforts were made to achieve a high level of dynamic performance. Furthermore, the upper body, in addition to using aluminum for the hood, trunk lid, and door panels, features a carbon fiber-reinforced plastic roof panel formed using the sheet molding compound method, which accommodates a high level of freedom in shape design. The firm three-door-type cabin points to excellent aerodynamic performance, while light weight is still achieved.
Among the GR Yaris’ available engine variations, the 1.6-liter in-line three-cylinder direct-injection turbo engine is a newly developed compact and light high-power unit. In addition to the high-speed combustion of a TNGA engine, by increasing engine revolutions through the use of lightweight moving parts, and by optimizing the turbocharger and other elements of the air intake and exhaust system, efforts were made to achieve the world’s highest maximum output for a three-cylinder engine*7 of 200 kW (272 PS), as well as to achieve continuous provision of abundant torque over a wide range of engine speeds. Combined with a six-speed iMT (Intelligent Manual Transmission), which makes rhythmical gear changes possible, this engine provides overwhelming acceleration and allows users to experience an increase in engine revolutions that feels good.
Furthermore, the newly developed “GR-FOUR” sports 4WD system, which uses a front and rear variable driving force system enabled by a multi-plate clutch, transfers the power of the new engine to all four wheels with minimal loss. Freedom of driving force distribution between the front and rear wheels has been increased, making possible delicate control that matches road surface conditions. These advancements have resulted in a higher level of stand-out driving stability. 1.6-liter in-line three-cylinder direct-injection turbo engine and the “GR-FOUR” sports 4WD system Production will be carried out on a dedicated production line at Toyota’s Motomachi Plant, which has a long and solid track record of manufacturing sports cars, and plans are for assembly to be carried out by takumi (master craftsperson) team members.
Available only through pre-order, the special-edition RZ “First Edition”, based on the GR Yaris’ RZ grade, will don customized specifications in the form of its front grille, front side diffusers, rear spoiler, and rear bumper all being in matte black. Additionally, the special-edition RZ “High-performance First Edition”, based on the GR Yaris’ RZ grade and featuring high-performance equipment*8 with heightened performance limits, will feature the customized specifications of the RZ “First Edition” plus BBS forged aluminum wheels in matte black.
Toyota will accept concrete First Edition purchase inquiries limited to customers who pre-order online. The vehicle price of the special-edition RZ “First Edition” is planned to be 3.96 million yen (including consumption tax), and the vehicle price of the special-edition RZ “High-performance First Edition” is planned to be 4.56 million yen (including consumption tax).
Misschien toch eens een echt topic voor maken:
Toyota gaat eens zot doen en een homologatiewagen bouwen.
1.6L turbo 3-cilinder met manuele versnellingsbak. Vermogen momenteel onbekend.
4wd systeem met verschillende modi (instelbaar in 50/50, 30 voor / 70 achter en permanent variabel)
optioneel te krijgen met 2 sperdiffs (eat this @brjefs!) en gesmeden velgen
Gebaseerd op de nieuwe Yaris maar in driedeurs en met een gans andere daklijn omwille van de aero die ze willen doen in de rally
Alles eraan gedaan om de auto zo licht mogelijk te maken ( @PJH )
Geen gelimiteerde oplage.
Normaal volgende maand voorstelling in Tokyo.
Mijn zus woont in Perth Australië en is van plan een nieuwe wagen te kopen. Hun oog is gevallen op een 2008 Landcruiser V8 diesel.
Betreft dus een Australische Landcruiser LC200 Sahara, de topversie met alle toeters en bellen van 2008 en 196.000km op de teller. Vraagprijs omgerekend een 27.000euro, ik weet niet als dit een correcte prijs is voor de Australische markt waar serieuze offroaders in West-Australië erg in trek zijn...
Kennen jullie de zwakke punten of aandachtspunten van deze modellen? Bullitproof of toch goed opletten met deze wagens?
Diesel is veel minder in trek en wat duurder dan benzine in Australië. Gaan ze toch beter voor de 4.7i V8 benzine of zullen de running costs dan de pan uitswingen?
Lak en interieur lijken me op het eerste zicht in goede staat. Hetgeen me wat zorgen baart is de hoge kilometerstand...
