The Tokyo Auto Salon (TAS) is the first in a long list of motor shows that we’ll have to keep tabs on for the rest of the year. It’s coming soon this January, and Tom’s Racing has already announced its lineup for the Makuhari Messe-based auto show. Needless to say, Tom’s 2023 TAS booth will be full of sports cars and, surprisingly, a stunning sedan.
One of the highlights of Tom’s booth is the Century – a very formal four-door that is usually used to transport Japanese government officials. For the TAS, Tom equipped the Century with performance bits and subtle exterior additions like an exposed tailpipe and BBS wheels.
Tom is also offering his widebody Toyota Supra, which comes with upgrades to make it even faster. In addition to the modern BMW B58 engine, the turbo has been replaced with a high-flow type. The updated performance is partnered with an aerodynamic body kit and is complemented by a specially developed exhaust system called Tom’s Barrel.
A Tom’s Supra Touring will also be on display, featuring an improved chassis focused on touring stability.
Meanwhile, the auto show will also feature the turbocharged Toyota GR86 by Tom’s Racing. It is dressed with a wide body kit although the power figures of the Force Induced engine have not been revealed at the moment.
The Toyota tuning specialist is also showcasing the posh side of the Japanese automaker, notably tuned versions of the Lexus LC 500 convertible and GSF. The latter is designed by Kazuki Nakajima – a former Formula One driver who has raced for the Williams-Toyota team since 2007. 2009. Meanwhile, the LC500 convertible comes with a wide body kit, racing suspension, a set of 21-inch aluminum wheels, and chassis braces.
The 2023 Tokyo Auto Salon is scheduled to take place from January 13 to 15, 2023 at Makuhari Messe, Chiba City, Japan.
