GAZOO SHOWS 320HP GT 86
"Put a turbo on it!" has been the cry and Gazoo has ... and a supercharger too for good measure
the GT 86 and/or BRZ Gazoo has, in its own particular style, gone double or quits and added a turbo AND a supercharger. Well, why not.
Under the banner 'Fun to drive, again' Toyota's Japanese site has a full spec run down on the concept and it looks very promising indeed and should answer those who've criticised the Toyobaru for being a bit gutless and peaky. There's 320hp for starters, with 310lb ft of torque and the usual array of suspension, brake, exhaust and wheel upgrades all from Gazoo's 'Skunk Works' (our Toyota contact's own words) tuning and development programme. Weight remains 1,280kg and the interior gets race seats, harnesses, a roll cage (our kind of Track Pack) and the compulsory additional gauges any self-respecting rice rocket should have. Yo.
under the Toyota Racing Developments banner from early next year and encompass styling and chassis parts rather than engine tweaks and performance upgrades.
Either way, we'll be sure to check the concept out and report back when we get to the Nurburgring tomorrow though. And if you want to see it in the flesh yourself it'll be at the Goodwood Festival of Speed at the end of June.
