GRMN Sports FR Platinum Revealed in Tokyo

Concepts

Toyota GT-86 gets a full rebody and twin-charged 330hp engine from Gazoo Racing's street-tuning department.

The Tokyo Auto Salon has just opened its doors in Japan, and as could be expected, it's jam-packed with tuned versions of the Toyobaru sports coupe. But the most comprehensive of the modifications has surely been performed on the concept you see here. Based on the Toyota GT86 (sold in North America as the Scion FR-S), the GRMN Sports FR Concept Platinum has been treated to a comprehensive re-body at the hands of one of Toyota's official tuning departments.

The concept was previewed in the run-up to the show, but has now been fully revealed. The bodywork includes new headlights inspired by the last Toyota Supra, along with new tail-lights, a giant rear spoiler, quad tailpipes (that would be one for each cylinder), a fresh hood panel and a new front end.

The result of the fresh bodywork makes the concept four inches longer and three inches wider than the car on which it is based. Under the hood, Gazoo Racing Masters of Nurburgring (GRMN) has installed both supercharger and turbocharger to boost output from the 2.0-liter flat four up to 330 horsepower, representing over 50% more power and more than twice the torque, channeled through a six-speed manual and limited-slip differential to the rear wheels. There's also a fresh set of 18-inch wheels and an interior decked out in a full roll cage and two-tone leather racing buckets with four-point harnesses.
