Article by Christian Andrei, on January 2, 2013

More details about the "GRMN Sports FR Concept Platinum" were released by Gazoo Racing before its launch at the Tokyo Auto Salon. The Platinum is based on the previously announced GRMN Sports FR Concept. Its styling has been revised to differentiate it more from the Toyota GT 86. There isn’t plenty of information that we could get from the pictures but Gazoo said that this car will use a ventilated hood, new fenders and LED-infused headlights.

It also features distinctive alloy wheels, a rear spoiler and modified taillights. The cabin comes with a roll cage and more instruments such as a boost gauge, water temperature gauge, oil temperature gauge. It also gets white leather seats with four-point harnesses.

It is powered by a twin-charged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that offers about 330 HP (242 kW) and 431 Nm (318 lb-ft) of torque. It will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission that distributes power to the rear wheels through a limited slip differential. Its other notable features include a sport-tuned suspension, high-performance brakes and a dual exhaust.
