Toyota Aygo Crazy, algo más que una simple “pelotilla racing”

Toyota Aygo Crazy

Se han vuelto locos en Toyota, es lo primero que da pie a pensar la primera vez que uno lee las características técnicas de este micro urbano. Propulsión trasera, motor 1.8 VVT-i en posición central – el mismo bloque que montaron los últimos Celica y MR-2 – que entrega 200 cv y 240 Nm de par máximo. Muchísima potencia para mover tan sólo 1.050 kg, lo que redunda en unas aceleraciones de infarto y una velocidad punta que supera los 210 km/h.

Para extremar las aptitudes deportivas de este rabioso pequeño se han suprimido todas las ayudas electrónicas. No hay ABS y tampoco cuenta con dirección asistida, es lo más parecido a un kart carrozado, ¡pero menudo kart! En el interior destaca el volante desplazado de Sparco y la configuración biplaza con dos preciosos semibuckets forrados en cuero y alcántara, además de la correspondiente jaula antivuelco.

Este urbano radical nunca verá luz verde a su producción en serie por motivos obvios. Sin embargo será presentado como un divertido concept car en el próximo Salón del Automóvil de Londres. A continuación tienes una completa galería con fotos en alta resolución del Aygo Crazy, y más adelante está la nota de prensa oficial distribuida por Toyota.

“Aygo Crazy” concept car to make world premiere at London Motor Show

* A one-off concept designed for pure driving fun
* Built to be driven, not just for show
* Rear-mounted engine generates 200 DIN hp and 240Nm of torque
* Hand-crafted bodywork and 17-inch alloy wheels
* World debut at next month’s British International Motor Show

Aygo Crazy is the perfect antidote to all those wild concept cars that look great on the show stand but never turn a wheel. It is a unique machine that has been developed from the start to deliver no-holds-barred maximum driving pleasure, an unforgettable, fun experience.

Making its public debut at the British International Motor Show in London, Aygo Crazy is a one-off model, a “shopping supercar” that takes Aygo’s essential qualities to the limit. Owing more to the spirit of Group B rallying rather than D1 drifting, this is a car that is all about the joy of driving: with no electronic handling aids, no power steering and no ABS, it is like a kart with doors and a roof.

Recognisably an Aygo, it clearly packs more muscle with its custom-made body, 17-inch alloys and beefy Goodyear 225/45 rubber. There is even a direct link to Toyota’s sporting heritage as Aygo Crazy’s carbon fibre rear wing is a part taken directly from the 200mph race cars in the American Champ Car series.

Aygo Crazy is fettled with the Toyota 1.8 VVT-i unit that powered the final generation Celica and MR2 Roadster, rear-mounted and driving the rear wheels through the Roadster’s five-speed manual gearbox. The addition of a Toyota Motorsport turbo conversion kit boosts power output to 200DIN hp and torque to 240Nm.

Compare the performance to the 68 DIN bhp and 93Nm mustered by the standard road-going Aygo and you gain some idea of just what a different kind of machine this is.

To cope with the greater engine performance, a bespoke cooling system has been designed, with a huge, front-mounted aluminium radiator – ideal for those endless, tyre smoking, crowd pleasing donuts.

Weighing in at just 1,050kg, Aygo Crazy is capable of 127mph (est), but speed is not its defining quality: this is a machine that exists to be responsive and alive to the driver’s commands, to put smiles on the faces of those inside and outside the car.

The suspension is from the MR2 Roadster, with MacPherson struts front and rear. Adjustable Tein dampers sharpen dynamic performance and the front and rear track are one inch wider than on a standard Aygo.

The cabin, finished by specialist coachtrimmers O’Rourke, features purpose-built sports seats with four-point safety harnesses and a full roll cage.

With its bold Aygo Crazy decals and T2 4YGO (turbocharged, two-seat Aygo) number plate, Aygo Crazy will be hitting the show circuit – and the open road – this summer, proving that while this Aygo may be crazy, it’s a memorable madness.
