Is the wide body now coming directly from the factory? It seems that Gazoo Racing the fierce Factory tuning program for the new Toyota GR 86 actually want to start. And the options should even include more power. Well before the GR 86 comes onto the market (in Japan only from autumn, in Europe it is still completely unclear) shows the in-house tuning company Gazoo Racing (GR) in cooperation with Toyota Racing Development (TRD) a completely rebuilt copy. We reported about this in June. But now there are a few new pictures and information. So let's take another look at the subject. The aggressive concept car should give an outlook on how the factory tuners imagine the compact coupé. It starts with the front of the GR 86 Concept, which shows in which direction a possible tuning program could go.

The front apron shows itself with a drawn far forward front splitter and both sides still exist Spoiler corners. These rise up in front of the wheelhouses and they merge directly into further design elements, which are aligned in such a way that they attract the eyes of the new one radiator grill to steer. This is equipped with a grid insert in the lower area, and above it is open.
In addition to an aerodynamic aspect, the design also has the task of the engine more oxygen to feed. And why? Because apparently one too performance increase it's planned. And with one, among other things optimized intake tract. And so that an even more effective discharge of the hot air is guaranteed, Gazoo installed additional Air outlets in the hood. Concrete planned changes for the 2,4-liter four-cylinder boxer engine with 235 PS and 250 NM torque we don't know.
Sports exhaust system from GR and TRD
Just one Sports exhaust system from GR and TRD should already be determined. A really significant increase in performance is only possible by means of turbocharger possible, which we currently do not believe in. Let's get to the stern. The GR 86 is said to be a mighty one rear wing and striking Diffuser fins and the rear should be similar to the front tripartite form show. These are the four tailpipes surrounded by a lot of carbon to those with a distinctive shape Diffuser fins belong. The powerful GT wing is also made of carbon and bends noticeably on the side. But the highlight are those fender attachmentsthat work on both axes together for one Enlargement of 86 millimeters to care.
They each wear in front two air outlets and according to Gazoo even they should Side skirts perform aerodynamic tasks. The keyword is "Ground effect". The tuning is rounded off by forged 19-inch alloy wheels with Bridgestone Potenza sports tires, the one Brake system with red calipers accommodate.
