Toyota 86 cB Edition Revealed w/Dramatically Smooth Lines

Special Edition to Launch in Japan this April

The U.S.-spec Scion FR-S has seen its fair share of special editions, but none have been as dramatic as the Toyota 86 style Cb edition, which the automaker announced will launch in Japan this April.

The style Cb edition concept actually made its first appearance a few years ago at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon where it looked relatively tame surrounded by other, crazier concepts and tuner cars. Nevertheless, there must've been enough interest in the car at the show for Toyota to add it to the 86 lineup.

Toyota says the 86 Cb edition is all about “fashion sense.” With that said, there won’t be any alterations under the hood. The biggest change takes place up front where the nipped and tucked fascia sports a softer look thanks to round headlights. An LED strip that cuts through the grille and lower bumper doubles as daytime accents and turn signals. The triple fin accents on the front fender are also LED-illuminated.

Customers in Japan can opt for a two-tone paint treatment that includes a darker contrasting shade for the roof, pillars, trunk, and a stripe that runs from the fin accent and along the belt line. “Cb” badges are used inside and out, while the interior features a woodgrain dash panel and resigned instrument panel. No word yet on whether the Cb edition will make it to the U.S.

Can you make your car waltz around a city street or wooded backroad like Ken Block? Probably not. Of course, the inability to hold hundred-foot all-wheel-drive slides and place a front wheel within millimeters of a dock drop-off hasn’t stopped tens of thousands of Gymkhana fans from imitating their rally hero, on- or off-camera. Most do so with a modified

One of the most common flexes among the biggest automakers is to squirrel away examples of their best and rarest work over their history to eventually show off those pieces as an anthology.

Roll racing is having a moment – or at least it was before COVID hit and shut down a year’s worth of events. The motorsport phenomenon that we first noticed through the likes of Texas2K two-plus decades ago and a few other copycat events around the country since had some momentum heading into 2020 before

In order to get the full story of Garage Active, and its animated founding father, you would need more than just a single feature. In all honesty, you would probably need something along the lines of the Lord of the Rings sized trilogy, complete with all of the spin-offs, behind-the-scenes extras and perhaps even that
