Tokyo Auto Salon 2013



I think it'd be wrong to talk about the new eighty-six without following it up with the old eighty-six companion that spawned it. Notable mentions include privateer Impulse's all carbon AE86 (we visited them last summer), and the factory backed Lexus CCS-R ISF which competed at Pikes Peak this past August.

Impulse carbon AE86
To me this is the 86 that takes the cake. We've been following Impulse since last summer when we visited them in the summer of last year. On this Levin, every exterior panel where possible was done in carbon.
Impulse carbon AE86
By taking the cake, I mean compared to any 86 (new or old, FR-S, GT86, BR-Z, or Trueno): Impulse's Tajima also did the ITB housing in carbon.
