Toyota still has not presented more than a prototype of the new S-FR and is already thinking about their future. The small sporty appears to be a reality in the next few months, and now Toyota confirms it in his own way. So is the Toyota S-FR Racing Concept, a racing version of the prototype, which as we also see in the circuits.
Is based on the S-FR standard, which has been heavily modified to achieve an aerodynamically more suitable for the practice of motorsport. This is why a large spoiler in the rear, or a diffuser of enormous magnitude. In the front there is a new splitter, new aerodynamic devices, and a new bonnet with air intakes.
Toyota ensures that it is more wide and more low, but does not advertise any data of weight. The series model is already very light but surely there is some weight reduction thanks to the use of carbon fiber, and the elimination of unnecessary elements. Precisely in the interior there are more elements of competition, although Toyota still don’t have been shown.
as for the engine, Toyota has not talked about S-FR Racing Concept, so that we don’t know what you have planned for the brand for their future. In case you have it. Some reports have been given by the fact that the series model would be under the hood a 1.5 a maximum power of 130 horses, but nothing has been confirmed.
We trust more in the new 1.2 turbo that has premiered the new Auris, a small motor and powerful that could very well get to the S-FR production with a small increase of power. For the racing version could perhaps rely on this mechanic with major mechanical changes.
The Toyota S-FR Racing Concept seems to confirm that the S-FR standard will almost safely to the market. We don’t know when or how, but the coming months should confirm, or not, the final project. At the moment, this prototype reaches the Living in Tokyo in January.
