Beginning with its front fascia, it gets a tweaked bumper with a lower stance and a wider air intake. This redesign also draws from the Lexus LFA with its faux air vents on the corners of the front bumper. The headlights, on the other hand, get new daytime running lights (DRLs). At the rear, it has redesigned combination taillights which are now illuminated by LEDs. The rear bumper has been given an aerodynamic makeover with a new shape and the addition of a more aggressive diffuser. The side relatively carries over apart from the new '86' badging.
