Toyota GT 86 Twincharged by Gazoo Racing going to Goodwood image

A Twincharged version of the Toyota GT 86, made by Gazoo Racing, will be officially presented to the public during the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

With Toyota announcing accessories for the GT 86 earlier this month, the Japanese sports car is once again highlighted, this time with the help of the aftermarket specialists at Gazoo Racing, who have announced a special version of the model, named the Twincharged. According to the tuning company, the Toyota GT 86 Twincharged is capable of delivering a total output of 320 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque thanks to the volumetric compressor and turbine.

Besides the power boost, the Toyota GT 86 Twincharged is also coming with a modified six-speed transmission, a roll cage, a brand new body kit and a fresh set of 18-inch alloy wheels. As a quick reminder, the 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, in standard, 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 will be available as an option.
