The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently pulled the wraps off the latest racing variant of the GT 86, the GT4, which is a FIA compliant race car.
After seeing several racing cars based on the Toyota GT 86 over the last months, time has come to meet one more, which is also probably the most interesting of them all. The newest racecar based on the popular rear-wheel drive vehicle is named the Toyota GT 86 GT4 and it’s a FIA compliant GT4 version, which was created by the UK based motorsport and engineering company named GPRM, while the engine has been made in a collaboration between GPRM and Nicholson McLaren engines.
According to its creators, the Toyota GT 86 GT4 is coming with a bespoke version of the 2.0 liter four-cylinder boxer engine, which is producing a total output of 360 HP (268 kW) – 400 HP (298 kW). The Toyota GT 86 GT4 in question will be eligible to take part in various competitions starting early next year. More details on the race car will be announced over the following months.
