"Not angry enough! Needs more craziness!", is probably what Kei Miura, who helms TRA-Kyoto, said. Luckily for us, he thought about this some time ago, promptly hit the drawing board and brandished the power tools to create this - the Rocket Bunny GR Yaris.
Since modifying Nissan Silvias, Toyota 86s and Subaru BRZs, they've been fitting massive fenders and even larger wings on anything that catches their fancy.
Street cred doesn't come cheap. For the GR Yaris, the kit costs JPY 580,000 (~RM 22,742.37), and for that buyers will get:
Front lip and splitter
Front and rear fenders
Rear bumper ducts
All this is before paint and fabrication work. Add fat wheels, tyres and improved suspension and you're looking at many more thousands of Yen/Ringgit spent.
The kit widens the front arches by 55 mm...
...and the rears by 70 mm. Which means you'll need properly meaty donuts to accomodate them. The owner of this particular car runs Cosmis Racing XT-005R wheels wrapped in 285/30R18 Dunlop Direzza Z3 tyres.
For some people that's not enough (like Daigo Saito who shoved a 1,000 PS 2JZ-GTE in one, as above), but for the most of us, it'll do the job just fine.
It's polarising for sure - some of you will want to burn it, some can't pick up their jaw from the floor - but all we know is that it's fantastic.
In Malaysia, this'll be an utterly collectible car worth close-to-RM 300k. Still think it's worth doing this to it? Share your thoughts with us in our Forum and comment sections.
