TOYOTA Australia has clear its intention to build sports versions of its mainstream vehicles with the supercharged TS-01 unveiled this at the Melbourne International Motor

With a new-generation Camry due 12 months, and an all-new, sportier following late in 2006, near-production show car is not expected to hit streets in its current form.

it does signal that a technical standpoint Toyota now has the nous and know-how to build a car as it draws near to establishing a division to rival Holden Vehicles, Ford Performance and Subaru’s STi brand.

We are clearly in a new direction with this said Toyota Australia’s designer, Paul Beranger. looking at developing a range of models for a number of market And this is, as you say, a step that.

The Japanese are very of what we’re trying to do – know that we’ve got a unique market here we’ve got to do a lot of things with a number of products than have in Japan, so the sports for Australia is a big growth area for

From a technical point of we could build this car and be very comfortable that it work.

Mr Berangar said was now in a position to exploit the market and interest in performance cars HSV and FPV have established – but with which have the design engineering finesse and sophistication Holden and Ford don’t

We feel that we’ve got the of ingredients that will a new customer to Toyota and certainly from the existing customer that Holden and Ford he said.

There are certain who will always want to buy and Fords. (but) we are looking to our market. We’re certainly closely at a lot of the European product coming into Australia and we there is potential in Australia for like this (TS-01).

also like to look at vehicles like this.

over the past nine with a $600,000 budget, the Sportivo-based TS-01 has a Roots-style – sourced from Toyota Development in the United States – to the venerable 3.0-litre V6 engine, with 0.5bar of boost maximum output to 185kW (up at 6000rpm and 320Nm (up 36Nm) at

More than a parts-sourcing, exercise, the TS-01 also led to between Japanese and Australian to ensure the supercharger was fully with the engine’s electronic unit (ECU).

This has the first time we’ve been able to get into the with TMC’s (Toyota Corp’s) assistance, and that’s quite a milestone as far as our engineering in Australia is concerned, said Australia new business development Robert Allen. We’ve some big steps.

Mated to the five-speed manual transmission in Sportivo – this one using a notchier throw but the same ratios – and using a beefier derived from the Celica GT4 car, the TS-01 is claimed to 100km/h from standstill in 7.2

The exhaust is all-new rearwards the catalytic converter, with a of two-inch stainless steel running through custom-built and tuned to impart a distinctive – nothing too outrageous – note. Not bad for a which was never designed to a twin exhaust.

Sitting 20mm lower Sportivo, the front-drive TS-01 considerable attention to deal the blown engine and to increase involvement – in essence, to get as close as to a neutral chassis.

While the brace bar was removed, and the steering with 100 per cent stiffer bushes and 14 per cent faster ratio, reinforcements were to the rear suspension mounting to increase rigidity.

The front rate was raised seven per the rear spring rate 3.5 per and front and rear shocks in accordance. High-stiffness drop on the front and rear stabiliser were used to reduce and rear toe angles were to almost zero degrees – to race-car spec – with parameters all the while ensuring comfort and compliance.

The latter is to be verified, of course, however wheels and ultra-low profile were eschewed for a more combination in 18-inch rims and ZR18 Michelin Pilot

Set in a stunning open-spoke pattern, the give onlookers a good of the brakes, which at each corner show a black PBR C5 calliper. Ferodo performance pads were used and rear, the front disc was increased from 280mm to (rear discs were not and the brake booster was retuned.

Weight distribution remains the same at an estimated 65/35 and while neither the show car nor the mule built alongside it has plonked on a set of scales, kerb is believed to be around the current Sportivo mark.

The question to ask now is: Is it any Mr Allen said the development car several benchmark cars HSV and FPV cars and Subaru’s Liberty GT.

In of overall refinement, it’s a refined package and in handling and it’s a point-to-point car and probably as quick, he said of its performance the local muscle cars.

It have the outright cred in a strip sense – (but) only a little bit behind in regard.

We took the development car and the (Liberty GT) and a couple of other up to Winton, we drove them and came home and thought the we’ve got here is a better-handling … and performance is equal or better as Even though that’s an drive, performance-oriented car.

So we that that was our target – and over-achieved.

The exterior has received a workout from Toyota in-house design team, carbon fibre skirting the vehicle and some fine to detail with modular and rear skirts, brake slots, bonnet holes, a on the grille (which sends air under the bonnet), little air on the wing mirrors and flared arches.

A large rear wing a Formula One-inspired centre-mounted LED light and provision for an adjustable flap is also used.

there’s little write about save for increased seat bolstering, tan suede backlit instruments and some use of carbon fibre trim.

we’ve tried to do with car is take the family Camry and it some character, Mr Beranger One of the things that we feel is is to be able to communicate the technology to the because the package the engineering put together is pretty impressive for a car this.

We haven’t rushed out and a car that is dramatic in terms of We feel that we want to the credibility of Camry as the product for it … (and) it really is an integration of and styling brought together in a but very sporty package.

TOYOTA has also shown in its CSS (Compact Sports Specialty) sports car concept and the WelCab which can be driven by people a range of mobility impairments partial quadriplegia.

The first new range since 1997 be there, featuring improvements in space, payload area, economy, safety and comfort and levels. It also mates direct-injection turbo-diesel power an auto transmission in 4×4 for the time.

Toyota has also a restyled 2005 Corolla featuring new headlights, grille, bumper, skirts, tail-lights and plus a six-CD, MP3-compatible system and new-look grey trim.
