GT86 GT4 Nearly Track Ready

The GT4 endurance racing version of the Toyota GT86 will soon be hitting tracks across Europe and could produce nearly 400 horsepower.
It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that Toyota has big plans for its GT86 on the race track. Although the rear-wheel-drive coupe isn't the most powerful thing out there, with some fine tuning and various other upgrades it'll make a great GT4 race car. The first FIA-approved GT4 racing version of the GT86 will be hitting the track shortly as part of a shakedown before it begins competition later this year. It's powered by a 2.0-liter direct injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine that'll produce between 360 and 400 horsepower.

Its official output will be finalized during testing. Engineering firm GPRM is behind the effort and believes the GT86 "will make an ideal GT4 contender in British GT," as well as the GT4 series throughout Europe. GPRM's creation is a cost-efficient entry-level endurance racer that also has the full support of Toyota who's providing the necesary technical assistance.
