Tommy Kaira M20b (PART: Tommykaira body kit)

Rare look at a Tommy Kaira fully-built “complete car” M20b impreza with Tommy Kaira body kit for the GDB.  Super rare kit.

Tommy Kaira, the famed Japanese tuner (famed by way of Gran Turismo) does things a little differently than most JDM tune shops… This car is a complete turnkey tuned car sold by Tommy and marketed in its own manufacturer name and model – the “TommyKaira M20b”  (think of it as what Saleen does for to Mustangs.  Or John Lingenfelter + Corvette).  They’ve only recently beginning to sell and market their parts à la carte.

Not to mention 2.2-liter stroker motor fully built by Tommy Kaira. This is not a just a bolt on appearance package with stickers.  TK did this car right by giving it an enlarged version of the JDM EJ207 (sti 2.0) from the factory built to TK’s own specs.  ……..it also comes with a bolt on appearance package : P (body kit + wheels + interior… stickers optional) if you couldn’t tell from the pics.  There are a few examples of this body kit that I’ve seen in the U.S., though not many to be sure.

Wheels:  SSR type C  (the Japanese version of the SSR Competitions sold in the U.S.) and lowered on Buddy Club Racing Spec coilovers… Tommy Kaira also manufactures it’s own original design 6-spoke wheel.

The lines of this kit are very aggressive (this is not a kit for those who thinks the modding stops after a  “V-limited” lip) and it packs a menacing look that is only matched by the M20b’s performance.

  1. Since Tommy Kaira went under new ownership all of their prices have been altered and you can score one of their Impreza aero kits for pretty cheap. I must say I’m not the biggest fan of the look. It’s definitely “unique”. The front bumper is far more attractive than the rear bumper, which for whatever reason, reminds me of an INGS +1 product.

    Tommy Kaira always reminded me of the RUF of TechArt of Japan.

    I have those TK side diffusers… Can’t wait to finally get them on. I think I might have them CF wrapped with the straight weave to tie everything in.
