Run by former Australian champion Tony Wedlock and his Ultimate Motorsport team, the TRD Aurion Pro-FX has a top speed of more than 350km/h.
When it comes to sheer power, no other motor sport beats drag racing. Toyota Racing Development is at home in all sorts of motor sports and has now unveiled a drag racer, the TRD Aurion Pro-Factory Xtreme (Pro-FX).
The TRD Aurion Pro-FX is capable of reaching a top speed of over 350 km/h and can go from standstill to 100 km/h in under 1 second with its 1300kW of power from the Toyota six-cylinder turbocharged engine. Former Australian champion Tony Wedlock will pilot the monster at its first race, this weekend at the 2008 Winter nationals in Australia.
Toyota Australia motorsport manager Todd Connolly said, "Today's unveiling of the Ultimate Motorsport TRD Aurion Pro-FX takes us to a whole new level - this car has performance and excitement by the bucket-load.”
"We are eager to show that as well as good looks, our Ultimate Motorsports TRD Aurion Pro-FX has performance to match," Wedlock said. "We are looking to push the performance envelope this weekend."
