At the Tokyo Auto Salon this year 2019, a small booth by Impulse (Japan) had a neat project car for AE86 owners. A FULL Carbon Fiber Body AE86 that's been in the works since 2014. It is maturing to a very fine meticulous kit.
25mm Wide-body Fenders top off the full list of parts from all fenders, doors, roof, rain gutter, hood, hatch, front canards and splitter, along with B pillars. All the panels line up like stock and details of the weave is amazing!
Graced with 15x8 wheels and 205/50-15 Dunlop Direzza B2 stretched over it, it's an amazing machine to even just stare.
Created by the carbon fiber masters at Impulse and a full line of parts on a 4A-GE 5 Valve (20V) engine along with the shop original direct ignition kit using coils from Honda S2000 on a special Motec ECU.
Fully stitched and caged body I am sure works tremendously to supporting the carbon parts well in alignment.
The rigid frame giving crazy maneuverability and handling precision on track too.
The care taken to shave weight goes all the way to the use of their titanium hood support rods!
Front wheels supported by alignment correction kits from Zegrace G offset ackerman knuckle and full adjustable arms.
Especially nice is the wide body extensions that cover the meeting surface of bumper to fender, eliminating the classic issue of leading edge to look ugly having cut off to clear wider track and larger wheels.
It is one cherry ass AE86. For those with big budgets.
