The first Toyota GT86 prepared for GT4 racing has just been unveiled by Buckingham-based motorsport company GPRM. Even though the car is powered by the same 2.0-liter direct-injection engine as the road-going GT86, this race car is strapped with a turbocharger which will boost the output to somewhere between 360 and 400 hp. Designed in a joint partnership with Nicholson McLaren Engines, this car’s engine is now ready to begin pre-season testing.
“We have gone all out to engineer quality and reliability into the GT86 as well as competitiveness, and the result has provoked a lot of interest from all around Europe,” said GPRM director Gary Blackham. The company has already received one order fro a GT4-spec GT86. Toyota was not directly involved in the build, but they have been providing technical support to GPRM.
