GRMN Sports FR Concept coming to the Goodwood Festival of Speed

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 27, 2012

The Toyota GT86 TRD will not be the only vehicle from this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed as the Japanese manufacturer will also bring a turbo and a supercharged concept version of the new Toyota sporty coupe. Dubbed GRMN Sports FR Concept, the new car is the work of Gazoo Racing and already made its racing debut at the Nürburgring 24 Hours last month. According to Autocar, the GRMN Sports FR Concept is powered by the same 2.0-liter engine delivering an impressive 315 hp and 311lb ft (421 Nm) of torque.

For those who don’t know, the same engine delivers 200 hp on the standard Toyota GT 86. Although the GRMN Sports FR Concept was created for track use, it’s still road legal and offers a new suspension system and upgraded brake calipers in order to stop in time. Moreover, the car was fitted with a new exhaust system developed by Gazoo Racing but also with a new set of 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in high performance tires. In terms of design, we find new front and rear bumpers as well as a new rear wing.
