Much has been said about the Toyota 86, including its poise, balance and dynamism – and how a little more under-bonnet brawn would do it no harm. Well, Japanese fettlers GAZOO Racing have released some teaser images of their take on the 86, daintily christened theĀ GRMN Sports FR Concept Platinum.

An evolution of last year’s GRMN Sports FR Concept, the car gets a supercharger added to its 2.0 litre flat-four, resulting in 330 hp and 431 Nm of torque. The pics tease little – we can see a rear wing, unique headlamps, tail lamps that echo those of the Mk IV Supra, an aerokit and some eight-spoke 18-inch alloys. We can expect the interior to be given the race-inspired treatment as well.

GAZOO Racing will be bringing this to the Tokyo Auto Salon, so we’ll undoubtedly have more details in two weeks’ time.
