To turbocharge or supercharge the Toyota 86? It's the puzzle facing enthusiasts around the world. Gazoo Racing's solution, the Sport FR Concept, takes a leaf out of the Old El Paso girl's book, answering: 'why not have both?'
The Gazoo Sport FR Concept takes the Toyota 86’s standard 147kW/205Nm 2.0-litre four-cylinder Boxer engine and adds a turbocharger and a supercharger, taking its total output to 239kW of power and 421Nm of torque.
Full performance specs of the Gazoo are still to be revealed, although with power to rival a Porsche 911, the Sport FR Concept is likely to shave more than two seconds off the 86’s 0-100km/h time and slide into sub-5.0 second territory.
Other mechanical enhancements include Gazoo-tuned suspension, brake calipers and rotors and dual exhaust system.
The unique body kit, which adds a decidedly Lexus LFA flavour to the rear-wheel-drive coupe, adds new front and rear bumpers, racing spoiler, Gazoo logos and a new alloy wheel and tyre combination.
Inside, the Sport FR Concept features a full roll cage, bucket seat with four-point seatbelt, black skin tone surfaces and an additional meter with boost gauge, water temperature gauge and oil temperature gauge.
