Last year, Blitz showed a pretty radical bodykit for the Toyota GR86 and the Subaru BRZ twins, sending strong NFS Underground vibes. Now, the Japanese tuner revisits the RWD sportscars with a second and more subtle approach.
Unlike the previous iteration, the new kit retains the front bumper of the GR86 and the BRZ, which is the main point of differentiation between the twin models. In both cases, Blitz added a more pronounced splitter with black and body-colored accents, bringing the chin closer to the ground.

On the profile, the models benefit from side skirt extensions, leaving the front and rear fenders unaltered. The aftermarket alloys shown on the press shots are not included in Blitz’s kit, leaving the owner to decide on the wheels of their preference.
At the back, the tuner added fins on both sides of the diffuser, which can be either body-colored or black. More importantly, there is a choice among two different rear spoilers – low and high – with different heights for the bases and adjustable wings. Finally, there is a body-colored addition on the base of the rear windshield, for cosmetic purposes. As for the blue-burned twin tailpipes and the decal set, those are optional.
The kit is already available to order in Japan. The front spoiler costs ¥60,500 ($423) or ¥88,000 ($616) with the LED strip, the side sill extensions are priced at ¥110,000 ($769), the diffuser flaps ¥49,500 ($346), and the rear window garnish ¥38,500 ($269). The aforementioned cost is about unpainted FRP components and does not include fitment. As for the rear wing, both the low and the high derivatives cost ¥275,000 ($1,923) when made from FRP, or ¥330,000 ($2,308) when made from carbon, making it the most expensive part of the bunch.
Besides the visual modifications, Blitz is offering a series of mechanical upgrades for the sportscar duo. Improvements on the intake, cooling, ECU, and exhaust help increase the power output of the naturally aspirated 2.4-liter boxer engine from the stock 232 hp (235 PS / 173 kW). Finally there is the option of handling upgrades such as a lowered and stiffer suspension, a more aggressive camper, strut bars, and stronger brakes.
