The Liberty Walk widebody kit and Forgestar M14 wheels, ensure this Toyota 86 will turn heads anywhere its owner takes it
The Toyota 86 is a lightweight, nimble, and well-balanced high-performance coupe. It comes with a 2.0-liter engine, developing 208 horsepower and 12 Nm (156 lb-ft) of torque. Sure, the engine power is nowhere near that of a Nissan GTR or, for that matter, a Toyota Supra. However, the Toyota 86 comes with a weight of just 1,190 kilograms (2,624lbs), ensuring loads of fun can be had, even with (for today’s standards) somewhat paltry engine power. The suspension system comprises front MacPherson struts and double wishbones at the rear, ensuring this vehicle can be properly thrashed around both on and off the track.
The handling prowess and impressive looks are what made the Toyota 86 a staple of the trackday racing and aftermarket tuning scene for almost the entire decade. It’s not a surprise that we’re seeing more and more builds, featuring this same exact vehicle, in recent times. Sure, while the used vehicle pricing might not be that impressive lately, the 86, due mostly to the new generation coming out alongside the new Supra, is still cheaper and more affordable for the average aftermarket tuner. Hence, this Matte Black Liberty Walk Toyota 86 build comes to play.
This particular Toyota 86 features a bevy of aftermarket additions & upgrades. First, the most noticeable item is the complete Liberty Walk widebody kit, giving this vehicle an aggressive exterior look throughout. This particular kit consists of a front diffuser, rear diffuser, and a set of wide fenders in the front and rear, all topped off with an aero wing. The kit naturally shows off what has become a staple design feature of Liberty Walk kits: exposed fastening hardware. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s an unmistakable feature of their design and we tend to like it more often than not.
The exclamation point for this build is a set of Forgestar M14 modular forged wheels. It’s a well-known wheel design from one of the most loved aftermarket wheel companies out there, whose wheel designs grace some of the most impressive aftermarket builds out there. This particular wheel design offers a unique combination of a rotary formed center and a forged-rolled lip, creating a wheel that can be configured custom per your exact specifications. And thanks to a classic Y-spoke design, step lip, and showing hardware, it’s an unmistakable way to finish off any widebody build like this one.
Furthermore, thanks to a Gloss Red with Gloss Black finish combination for the wheel centers and lips, respectively, these definitely round up the look for this Matte Black Toyota 86 widebody project.
