Moreover, we find a a couple of performance parts from Toyota Racing Development (TRD) such as lowering springs and an exhaust system.
The sporty theme is continued at the interior, where the vehicle features sporty seats wrapped in texturized black fabric with red stitching. Same red stitching is found on the leather wrapped steering wheel.
Because we are talking about a limited edition, all the models will feature an individually numbered badge commemorating the unique model.
