Aussie Toyota Aurion gets TRD upgrade

Anyone living in the Middle East has access to a pretty good set of satellite channels collectively known as MBC. But it seems that they’ve been unhealthily obssessed with MTV’s Pimp My Ride, so much so that they made an Arabic version and constantly bombard audiences with very annoying TV ads featuring modded cars. It seems Toyota has caught the bug too, and decided to release this heavily pimped Aurion for the Australian home market. That’s right. The Aurion is Australian.

The car has been in development for two years by TRD Australia, Toyota’s tuning arm, and the work continues. The process involves slapping on an Aussie-developed Eaton supercharger onto the Toyota 3.5-litre V6 for a theoretical power figure of a whopping 320 hp. We just hope all this juice isn’t fed through the front wheels to make this car a torque-steering mess, but there is no info of any all-wheel-drive system being developed.
