The spirit of fun driving is now closer to every Filipino. Thanks to the collaboration of Toyota Technocraft Co. Ltd. and Toyota Motor Philippines, Toyota Racing Development (TRD) products will now be exclusively distributed in all 43 dealerships of the Japanese carmaker nationwide. As you probably already know, the former has been in the sports customization industry since the 1950s and is the company behind TRD.
The announcement was made on October 18, during the qualifying round of the last leg of the 2014 Vios Cup. After all, TRD has helped turn the reliable Vios car into a competitive racing machine on the track, as seen in the just-concluded maiden series of the one-make race. TMP plans to expand its offerings with performance parts for race enthusiasts.
"The public will see a wide range of TRD products designed to provide our Toyota customers a sportier and more enjoyable driving feel," said Toyota Motor Philippines president Michinobu Sugata. "Truly, it is our vision to deliver the spirit of waku-doki to every Toyota customer."
Do you own a Toyota car and want to realize its full performance potential? Just drive to your Toyota dealership and ask about TRD stuff. Happy parts-shopping!
