Tokyo Motor Show – Toyota S-FR

Thursday 29 October 2015

The S-FR is a new concept that celebrates Toyota’s fine heritage of lightweight, fun-to-drive sports cars, a line that stretches back from today’s GT86 to the 2000GT andS800 of the 1960s.

Pitched as an entry-level model, its focus is on responsiveness and character that can make a new generation fall in love with driving. Toyota sees it as the kind of car that can attract its own die-hard fan base of drivers and customisers.

The design marries simplicity and compact design to bring human and machine closer together. An exceptionally lightweight body and a front engine/rear-wheel drive drivetrain contribute to responsive performance and direct handling, generating a real sense of connection between driver and car.

The design presents a long nose and wide stance for a classic sports car profile and the rounded bodywork adds to the S-FR’s welcoming appeal.

The engine has a front/midship location, with optimal weight distribution and independent suspension securing excellent cornering performance. A six-speed manual transmission supports smooth acceleration, adding to the car’s fun, responsive drive.
