• 2012 Toyota 86 "N1" Sports Track Competition by TRD

LISTEN 01:19

It’s not an understatement to say that the Toyota GT 86 is without question one of the most hotly anticipated models to come out of Toyota in quite some time. So when the car was officially revealed, we didn’t have to wait long to see a racing prototype come to life soon thereafter.

Turns out, Toyota Racing Development has developed not just one, but two prototypes based on the GT86: The N0 and the N1.

Official details behind the two models have yet to be revealed, but the Japanese website Response managed to take a few photos of the two cars as they were being prepared for the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. Compared to the 86 N0, the 86 N1 appears to be the more aggressively tuned of the two, as evidenced by the enormous carbon fiber rear wing the race car is sporting. The N1 also comes with the same logos and decals the N0 has, as well as special TRD badges found throughout the vehicle.

As far as engine enhancements are concerned, we’re pretty sure that TRD did something to both models to improve on their performance capabilities. Nothing has been announced yet, but we expect details to be revealed sooner rather than later.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Haven’t heard any new details about this hot Toyota GT 86. I am not into white cars but this one is an exception. I am really wondering about the engine specification of this sports car.

I just only wonder if what’s the engine specification of this Toyota? Well, I hope that they would use this time a more impressive and boosted barrel than on what they were typically using on their other vehicle.

It is already looks so awesome on its white body paint. However, I wonder if what are the other great features that it can offer aside from its looks, and I hope that they would use an impressive engine on it.

The simplicity of this vehicle is what I really love the most with this. I must say either that it looks so cool on its white body paint, and I hope that this time Toyota would already use an impressive engine for it.
