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.

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!

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided
  • Kia Stonic
    First Drive
    18 October 2017
    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
  • Hyundai Kona
    First Drive
    18 October 2017
    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment
  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
