TOM’S Racing, a notable aftermarket tuner, has revealed several modifications for the Toyota Crown. As consistently seen, these upgrades appeal more to the eye rather than performance. While Tachi Oiwa Motor Sport (better known as TOM’S Racing) does not take part in many racing activities nowadays, the enhancements that TOM’S makes on the Toyota vehicles have substantial influence apart from competing.

For the Toyota Crown, that requires a drop suspension upgrade and two exclusive21-inch wheel designs. The model also includes a forward spoiler, broad side skirt enhancements, a rear diffuser part, a trunk lid lip spoiler, plus carbon fiber-finish emblems.

This false diffuser encases four tailpipes, which may be concealed in a mesh net if a more slight look is desired. Moreover, even better Brembo brakes can also be acquired for the front end. Pricing and availability remain unannounced currently as tuning specifics for interior improvements have not been revealed; though it can be expected these too will be accessible soon.

The Toyota Crown collection already offers three distinct versions, but that’s only the initial selection for this moniker. An SUV, a sedan, and a wagon are expected to expand the range, and you can be sure TOM’S and other modders will provide components for these paradigms of the Crown as well.

Toyota is aiming to increase the Crown’s reach by introducing a hydrogen-powered option, though at this point, American purchasers have limited options. The first involves combining a 2.5L normally aspirated gasoline engine together with two electric motors that lends an output of 236HP, while the alternative is a 2.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine with two electrical motors that together provide a maximum 340HP.

This corresponds to an acceleration time of 0-60 mph of 5.7 seconds, which is not too shabby for a car of this size. Actually, it’s pretty good; the Toyota GR86 needs 6.1 secs to reach the same velocity. If accessorized with TOM’S components, the Crown forms a desirable package.
