Toyota FT-86 G Sports Concept at Tokyo Auto Salon
The car's debut also marks the introduction of the "G Sports" badge. Toyota plans to use the G Sports badge in series of cars modified by motorsports firm Gazoo Racing to be released only in Japan, starting in mid-2010.
Most notable upgrade on the FT-86 G Sports edition was the addition of a turbocharger, of course, to the horizontally opposed 2.0-liter four-cylinder boxer engine. Body modifications include a wider, and smoothed-out front bumper that leads to wider wheel arches. A new carbon fiber front spoiler can also be seen at the bottom. The carbon fiber bonnet has air vents to improve the efficiency of radiator and intercooler.
The car has a carbon fiber rear spoiler sitting on top of the decklid, which now includes a strip of lighting. The rear bumper is more squared, with a CF diffuser that brings the dual exhaust pipes to the center. This concept sits on 19-inch alloy wheels wearing high-performance tires (POTENZA RE050, Front 245/40R19 / Rear 275/35R19). G's package includes Recaro full bucket seats for driver and passenger, and a roll cage!Reference: Toyota (in Japanese)
