The South African Toyota MR2 V6 Turbo Monster now with 830Hp/1020Kg
And Faster than ever at Knysna Speed Festival´s Simola HillClimb
Pieter Zeelie´s Toyota MR2 Monster powered by a Turbocharged 2GR V6 engine evolved tremendously during the last year and faced the Simola HillClimb in full force. Now producing around 830Hp, it also benefitted from a pretty considerable weight loss, losing around 80Kg in overall weight, tipping the scales nowadays at a very respectable 1020Kg.
But probably the biggest change was the implementation of a full race spec double wishbone setup with custom CNC alluminum uprights and stronger hubs and wheel bearings, making the car´s behaviour much more predictable and eliminating a lot of the traction issues it suffered in the past.
Of course Aerodynamically it continued its evolution sporting an even more dramatic version of the APR Bodykit inspired on the legendary Super GT Toyota MR-S that used to race in Japan in the early 2000´s. All this made for a car capable of finally breaking into the Top 10 Fastest Modified Saloon Class machines in Knysna Speed Festival, all while posting a very very quick 40,9 seconds best chrono during the event.
