Toyota GT 86 by Gazoo Racing going to Tokyo image

The aftermarket specialists at Gazoo Racing have recently announced their plans to introduce a custom Toyota GT 86 during the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon.

According to the tuning company, the Gazoo Racing Toyota GT 86 in question has received a supercharger on the 2.0 liter flat four-cylinder engine, which is helping the heart of the sports car pump out 330 HP and 431 Nm of torque. The GT 86 modified by Gazoo Racing is also getting an aerodynamic body kit which seems to be inspired by the Toyota Supra, along with 18-inch alloy wheels. More details on Gazoo Racing’s Toyota GT 86 will be announced in Tokyo.

As a quick reminder, the standard Toyota GT 86 is powered by the same engine as the Subaru BRZ or the Scion FR-S, which is the 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol unit, borrowed by Subaru and fitted with the company’s D-4S direct injection. The petrol engine is developing a total output of 187 horsepower, at 7,000 rpm, and it has a peak torque of 205 Nm (151 lb-ft), available at 6,600 rpm. The unit is mated to a six-speed manual in standard, or to a six-speed automatic, which is available as an option. Prices for the sports car in Europe start at just under 30,000 euros.
