Since the 2016 Toyota Prius‘s debut, there has been no shortage of aftermarket companies dressing up the Lady Gaga-inspired hybrid. While TRD has its own extensive list of kit for the fourth-generation Prius, other specialists include Wald and Tom’s Racing. Now, Kuhl Racing has gotten in on it too.

The Japanese aftermarket specialist has decked the funky looking hybrid with a front spoiler, a black side skirt – which doubles up as a side step – and an under spoiler with a floating diffuser in the back. Also, there’s a pretty little Swanneck GT wing that sits on the rear hatch.

Furthermore, the Prius receives larger aftermarket wheels and it appears to be sitting very much nearer to the ground, the result of a lowered suspension. In addition to that, the custom Prius seems to be sporting a different exhaust system, as those quad exhaust tips in the back suggest.

The Prius is now on sale in Japan and the US. It sits on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform and has a lower centre of gravity, while torsional rigidity is now stiffer by 60%. Also new is a double wishbone rear suspension and a new active hydraulic booster for regenerative braking to improve brake feel.

A re-engineered 97 hp and 142 Nm 2ZR-FXE 1.8 litre Atkinson-cycle VVT-I four-cylinder engine powers the new Prius, and the mill is paired with two electric motors that make 71 hp/163 Nm. Fuel efficiency is up, with the new Prius claimed to be able to achieve 40 km per litre on the JC08 cycle, a significant improvement over the third-gen’s 32.6 km per litre.
