New details are starting to emerge about the Toyota FT-86 Gazoo Racing coupe as our spies have managed to get up close and personal once again with it at the Nürburgring.

Set to compete in this weekend's four-hour VLN race, the prototype has a unique front fascia, an aggressive diffuser and a massive rear wing.

In a nod to its racing mission, the interior features a carbon fiber racing seat, a roll cage and an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel. These items won't carry over to the production model, but the instrument cluster and dashboard could preview the components which will be used on the mainstream FT-86 / BRZ / FR-S.

There's no word on performance specifications, but the prototype will be driven by M.Takaki, Y. Katsumata and M. Kageyama.
