The Toyota GT 86 prototype fitted with lightweight parts has been spied once again testing on the Nürburgring.

2015 will be the year when Toyota is going to introduce a facelifted GT 86 and based on these spy shots it could end up being offered with optional lightweight body parts. We don't know for sure if the hood, roof and trunk of this prototype are made from carbon fiber but it wouldn't come as a surprise if Toyota will offer them at an additional cost part of an optional package.

The new hood has double air intakes while the back hosts a massive fixed wing and in the engine department there could be a larger boxer unit as previously hinted by chief engineer Tetsuya Tada. He also said the facelifted GT 86 could feature new intake and exhaust systems developed with Gazoo Racing along with a different final drive ratio for more powerful accelerations.

The GT 86 facelift is scheduled to go on sale sometime in 2015 but Toyota could decide to show it before the end of the year. Sister models Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S will likely end up with the same array of changes.
