Toyota launch speed freak F1 car

Panasonic Toyota Racing started its 2009 season with the presentation of its latest Formula 1 car; the TF109.

Following a 'blockbuster movie' theme, the team launched the TF109 exclusively on the internet on 15 January ahead of its first test on 19 January.

New regulations for 2009 have radically altered the appearance of Formula 1 cars, with wider front wings, narrower rear wings and slick tyres amongst the changes.

The 2.3-litre, 8 cylinder engine pumps out a massive 740bhp, with a top speed of around 210mph.

Panasonic Toyota Racing is preparing for its eighth season in Formula 1 and its target is to fight for its first Grand Prix victory this year.
