A new concept from the world's largest automaker has been revealed in person and virtually. The Toyota FT-86 G Sports Concept was introduced to the public at the Tokyo Auto Salon, and is proudly featured in the new trailer for Gran Turismo 5.
The car's debut also marks the introduction of the "G Sports" badge. Toyota plans to use the badge in series of cars modified by motorsports firm Gazoo Racing to be released only in Japan.
One upgrade on the car was the addition of a turbocharger to the Subaru-made 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 front spoiler can also be seen at the bottom. The car's hood, now with air vents, is made from carbon fiber.
The car has a new rear spoiler sitting on top of the decklid, which now includes a new strip of lighting. The rear bumper is more squared off, with a diffuser that brings the dual exhaust pipes to the center. This concept sits on 19-inch alloy wheels wearing Potenza high-performance tires. Recaro seats round off the package.
No performance specs were revealed for the Toyota FT-86 G Sports Concept.
