Blitz presents a more subtle aero kit for the Toyota GR86 and the Subaru BRZ
Last year, Blitz showed off a pretty radical body kit for the Toyota GR86 and Subaru BRZ twins, sending some strong NFS Underground vibes. Now the Japanese tuner is revisiting RWD sports cars with a second, more subtle approach.
Unlike the previous iteration, the new kit retains the front bumper from the GR86 and BRZ, which is the main point of differentiation between the twin models. In both cases, Blitz added a more pronounced splitter with black and body-color accents, bringing the chin closer to the ground.

In profile, the models benefit from side skirt extensions, leaving the front and rear fenders unchanged. The aftermarket alloys shown in the press photos are not included in Blitz’s kit, leaving the owner to decide which wheels they prefer.
At the rear, the tuner has added fins on either side of the diffuser, which can be body-colored or black. More importantly, you have the choice of two different rear spoilers – low and high – with different heights for the chainstays and adjustable fenders. Finally, there’s a body-colored addition to the base of the rear windshield, for aesthetic purposes. As for the blue-burnt twin tailpipes and decal set, they’re optional.
The kit is already available to order in Japan. The front spoiler is ¥60,500 ($423) or ¥88,000 ($616) with the LED strip, side sill extensions are priced at ¥110,000 ($769), diffuser flaps are ¥49,500 ($346). $) and rear window trim ¥38,500 ($269). The above cost is for unpainted FRP components and does not include assembly. As for the rear wing, the low and high derivatives cost ¥275,000 ($1,923) when made from FRP, or ¥330,000 ($2,308) when made from carbon, making it the most expensive part of the bunch.
In addition to visual changes, Blitz offers a series of mechanical improvements for the sports car duo. Improvements to intake, cooling, ECU and exhaust help boost the power of the naturally aspirated 2.4-litre boxer engine over stock to 232 bhp (235 PS / 173 kW) . Finally, there is the option to run upgrades such as a lowered and stiffer suspension, a more aggressive camper, strut bars and more powerful brakes.
