Feel The Fury – TommyKaira Prius RR Hits Suzuka Circuit

Posted by

TommyKaira Prius RR

While most of the world finds the Prius to be a practical yet bland daily driver, TommyKaira has gone on to create a Prius with a unique personality. One could go as far as saying that they’ve created an “aggressive” looking Prius. Whatever it may be, TK has given me a new appreciation for the Prius and made me think that perhaps it would not be so terribly boring to own one.

I shared the picture below on our facebook fan page to mostly favorable comments and a whole lot of surprise. The one point of view which most people share (myself included) is the puzzling nature of why a design this agressive should find its way on to a Prius. A Prius most certainly does not need all of this racing aero does it?

Well, while myself and others were questioning the point of all of of these racing modifications and how a Prius would never see the track… a funny thing happened in Japan. TommyKaira was actually racing the Prius at Suzuka Circuit! I never really pictured a Prius running at Suzuka, yet TommyKaira gave it a go.

No lap times were posted, but we do have pictures indicating the oddity of two Prius racers along with a CR-Z. The Prius might be the only race car capable of completing a hot lap while safely eating a bowl of hot ramen.

Below are a few more shots that I find really cool for anyone who either A. Likes the Prius or B. Has written the Prius off as a car that has no passion.

Noteworthy is the full titanium 4 tip exhaust, the highly modified tail light design, and of course the wild new aero kit.
