For those of you anticipating the arrival of your new Toyota C-HR, maybe this will be offer some inspiration if you’re already planning for aftermarket upgrades – the R-Tuned Toyota C-HR.

Unlike the ones coming to Malaysia, with a 1.8-litre naturally-aspirated Dual VVTi unit mated to a Continuously-Variable Transmission, the R-Tuned C-HR comes with a 2.4-litre 2AZ-FE more commonly found in a Toyota Camry. The engine, which has been strengthened internally and turbocharged is capable of over 600 hp.

The C-HR’s stock CVT gearbox has been swapped for a conventional 5-speed manual transmission that drives the front wheels except the front axle is now equipped with a limited-slip differential. Not only focused on speed, its brakes are provided for by Brembo with 4-pot calipers in the front, working in tandem with motorsports dampers.

Helping to put that enormous power down are super wide Toyo Proxes RR tyres while an air dam, side ducts, an adjustable front splitter and the large rear wing helps bury the car to the ground when speeds surpass the triple digit mark.

Fancy a Coupe High-Rider that can possibly outrun a supercar twice perhaps three times its price tag? You know what to do.
