LE RENDEZ-VOUS TOYOTA IN “SPORT & FUN” MODE!

  • The Kikai Concept, unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show 2015, is one of the stars of the new “Sport & Fun” exhibition at Le Rendez-Vous Toyota on the Champs-Élysées, in Paris
  • Alongside the Kikai, the FT-1 Concept, the TS030 in the new TOYOTA GAZOO Racing colours, the Hilux Dakar, the FT86 Open Concept, the Yaris R1A and GT86 CS-R3 rally cars, the AYGO x-wave, as well as the small i-ROAD and COMS electric vehicles convey the sport and fun spirit that define the brand

As a follow up to the “Toyota Creative Design” exhibition inaugurated in spring, Le Rendez-Vous Toyota has switched to “Sport & Fun” mode with a selection of racing, production, and concept cars, including the famous Kikai, shown for the first time in France.

The Kikai, which was revealed in October 2015 at the Tokyo Motor Show, pays tribute to the beauty of mechanics by taking the machinery normally hidden beneath a vehicle’s bodywork, and revealing it. After the Geneva Motor Show at March 2016, its presence at Le Rendez-Vous Toyota offers a great opportunity to discover these spectacular and unusual details in all their naked glory.

The variety of models shown alongside the Kikai demonstrate how much sport and fun are deeply embedded in Toyota’s identity; in racing, of course, with the World Endurance Championship TS030 in the new TOYOTA GAZOO Racing colours, with Giniel de Villiers’ Hilux that ended up third in the 2016 Dakar, as well as the Yaris R1A and GT86 CS-R3, designed for rallying. There are also the spectacular FT-1 and FT86 Open Concepts.

The AYGO x-wave, with its large canvas roof and cyan blue colour is set together with the small i-ROAD and COMS electric vehicles -participants of Grenoble carpooling system, called Cité Lib by Ha:mo.

Le Rendez-Vous Toyota also offers several interactive activities to its visitors, such as customizing the FT-1 on a touch screen, painting the GT86 with a virtual aerosol, the WEC driving simulator and for children, drawing Toyota sports cars on a backlit trace table.

Located at 79 avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris, Le Rendez-Vous Toyota is open from Sunday to Wednesday, from 10.30 am to 10.00 pm, and from Thursday to Saturday, from 10.30 am to midnight.
