Ever since the Toyota GT-86, Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ triplets have been announced to the car world, enthusiasts have complained about their lack of power. Gazoo Racing or GRNM (Gazoo Racing Masters of Nürburgring) have taken this into account since the three automotive manufacturer’s appear to not be doing anything about it. Gazoo has now released this Toyota GT86 called the Sports FR, and it carries both a supercharger and turbocharger. Say what?!
You read correctly, Gazoo hooked up the Toyota GT86 2.0-liter 4-cylinder with dual chargers to boost output from 200 hp to 315 horses. Peak torque more than doubled from the stock 205 Nm or 151 lb-ft to 421 Nm or 310 lb-ft of torque. Customization’s did not end with the performance tuning however, the Japanese sports car also received a wide body kit to improve aerodynamics. It consists of new front and rear bumpers, fenders, side skirts and a new rear wing.
On all fours are brand new 18-inch alloy rims wrapped in high performance tires measuring 245/40/18 up front and 265/35/18 outback. Final modifications to improve handling along with the appearance are a high performance brake kit and suspension parts.
In the cockpit the passengers will enjoy new racing buckets, extra gauges replacing the stock audio system and a racing steering wheel without an airbag for the driver. The rear seats were removed in order to fit a roll cage, making it eligible for the Nürburgring 24 hour endurance race this weekend. But, it will make it’s world premiere on the sidelines, for car tuning enthusiasts to get a good first look.
Gazoo stated that the Toyota GT-86 Sports FR weight was increased by only 30 kg with these additions, so all this extra power will easily be able to improve the track times. Final announcements include a limited edition GRMN Toyota Yaris with 180 horsepower coming soon. Stay tuned for more Toyota GT86, Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ updates in the near future.
