These are the first images of the GRMN FR Sports Concept Platinum, the latest Toyota GT86 based creation from tuners Gazoo Racing.

Due to be unveiled at this month's Tokyo Auto Salon, the concept is 4.35m long, 1.85m wide and weighs 1,280kg. It is powered by a supercharged 2.0-litre boxer engine developing 325bhp and 318lb ft.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox and limited slip differential.

Changes for the new car are limited to aesthetics and include LED headlamps, an aggressive rear spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, full leather sports seats are fitted along with four-point harnesses and a roll cage.

GRMN stands for ‘Gazoo Racing Masters of the Nürburgring’ and is a nod to the company’s success campaigning a Toyota GT86 at the Nürburgring 24 hours, in which it won its class.
