Toyota - Aurion FPC

Toyota has given the Australian public a first glimpse of its new Australian-designed performance sedan.

The Toyota stand at this years Melbourne International Motor Show features a partial reveal of the Aurion Future Performance Concept (FPC).

The concept model is a pointer to a new Aurion-based performance sedan, due for local launch in the first half of 2007.

Styled by Toyota Style Australia and developed by Toyota Australia engineers, the performance model will be unique in the Toyota world.

It will sit above the sports model in the Aurion range.

Toyota Australia Executive Chairman John Conomos said the motor show display was designed to whet the public appetite for Toyota performance vehicles. 

"Our display at this show is a strong statement of Toyota Australias styling and performance engineering capability. Both the Sportivo Concept model and the FPC on the stand have been designed by our stylists here in Australia," Mr Conomos said.

The FPC display gives subtle hints about the cars aggressive body and wheel design.

The styling cues are more subtle than overt. They give an indication of the character of the car. The emphasis will be on refined performance and advanced technology, Mr Conomos said.

Powered by a sports-tuned supercharged 3.5-litre V6, the Aurion performance derivative will offer a complete package with the accent on excitement and athletic driving dynamics.

The supercharged engine will be displayed on the Toyota stand.

Specially developed and tuned by a team of Toyota Australia engineers working closely with local suppliers, the supercharged version of Toyotas 2GR-FE engine draws on motor sport engineering principles to deliver a new level of refined power and responsiveness to the performance car market.
