Toyota and Subaru have previewed the GT86/BRZ race cars image

The Japanese based automakers Toyota and Subaru have pulled the wraps off their latest creations, two race cars based on the GT 86 and on the BRZ.

Toyota and Subaru both have a long history in motorsport and since the two companies have revealed the GT 86 and the BRZ sports cars, there was a small part missing from the puzzle, which has been filled now, with the two race cars based on the models mentioned above. The Gazoo Racing team has played a huge part in developing these two models but even if the vehicles have been revealed, details on their performance remain unknown for the moment.

As a quick reminder, both the Subaru BRZ and the Toyota GT 86 are being powered by the same 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine developed by Subaru and fitted with Toyota’s D-4S direct injection system. The petrol unit is developing a total output of 197 BHP at 7,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 205 Nm (151 lb-ft) of torque available at 6,600 rpm, mated to a six-speed manual transmission in standard or to a six-speed automatic transmission as an option. The Scion FR-S is coming in the same configuration as the BRZ and the GT 86.
