It took around three years for the Toyota 86 sports coupe to be officially unveiled. And now that it’s here, the wait for a race-spec version of the sports car appears to be much shorter.
At the Gazoo Racing Festival - where the Toyota 86 was officially unveiled - two race-spec versions of the car also made appearances, both of which were tuned by Toyota’s in-house racing arm, TRD.
The first and less modified of the two is called the 86 "N0." Not a lot of details have been revealed at the moment, but photos taken by Japanese website Response revealed a few intriguing details about the model. To begin with, both the N0 and the N1 appear to be full-spec racing cars modified for track purposes. The former is the less modified of the two and doesn’t come with the carbon fiber rear spoiler on the N1, but still looks like it’s got the full checklist of racing paraphernalia down pat, including a race-spec exhaust system, a set of Volk Racing TE37 bronze wheels, and a full roll cage on the interior.
Performance enhancements are most likely done on the N0, although TRD has yet to reveal any information on that regard.
Nevertheless, when the time comes wherein the details emerge, we’ll be sure to bring them to you faster than you can say "Gazoo!"
