Toyota unveils FT-86 G Sports concept (+video)

Toyota FT-86 G Sports Concept fq

Visitors at last week’s Tokyo Auto Salon were treated to the surprise unveiling of Toyota’s new FT-86 G Sports Concept. The unique vehicle is set to feature alongside the standard FT-86 in the upcoming Gran Turismo 5 video game.

Based on Toyota’s FT-86 concept unveiled at October’s Tokyo Motor Show (read news), this modified, turbo-charged example was released to help promote Toyota’s new G Sports styling kits, currently exclusive to the Japanese domestic market.

The FT-86 G Sports concept features a wide-body kit to house a wider track, along with a lower-set, gaping front bumper and intake.

The vented, carbon fibre bonnet provides a connection with the G Sports concept’s popular old school AE86 predecessor, and huge 19-inch wheels sit on each corner.

Internally, the major addition to FT-86 G-Sports is a turbo-charger to the 2.0 litre Subaru-sourced boxer engine.

No specific technical details for the FT-86 G Sports concept have been released by Toyota, so performance and engine output remains unknown at this early stage.

Check out a trailer of the FT-86 G Sports concept driving in the Gran Turismo 5 video game should it ever be released on PlayStation 3.
