The twin-charger system concept boosts power and torque from the GT86’s 2.0-litre engine to 315bhp

The Toyota GT86 TRD will be joined at the Goodwood Festival of Speed by a turbocharged and supercharged concept version of Toyota’s new rear-drive coupé.

The GRMN Sports FR Concept is the work of specialist tuner and race team Gazoo Racing, and made a low-key debut at the Nürburgring 24 Hours last month.

The twin-charger system concept boosts power and torque from the GT86’s 2.0-litre engine to 315bhp and 311lb ft.

The concept is honed for track use, but remains road legal. There’s a more focused suspension system and upgraded brake calipers to boost stopping power.

A special exhaust system has also been fitted by Gazoo Racing, as have new 18-inch alloys wrapped in 245/40 R18 tyres at the front and 265/35 R18s at the rear.

Bodywork changes include a rear wing and deeper front and rear bumpers.

Toyota GT86

This light, uncomplicated coupé promises so much. Can the Toyota GT86 deliver?

The engine appears to be very good, I like this car.

I think a detuned version of this with around 250-260bhp, slimmer tyres and slightly more road-biased setup would be ideal as the flagship than the GT86 TRD and would sell for 40K.

This hammers the Porsche Cayman into obsolescence (and probably the 911 too - but that's aready obsolete due to the Nissan GT-R and Audi R8). Just make it!
