One of several GT 86 concepts unveiled by Toyota at this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon, it’s certainly not noteworthy because of its square eight-spoke rims.
Rather than the car’s styling, it’s what’s under the hood that counts here. Tossing the boxer 4-cylinder, long-time Toyota tuner TOM’S has replaced it with a true Toyota powerplant – a 3.5-liter V6.

The very same engine found under the hood of the Lexus IS and GS, it’s been tuned-up to deliver 400 hp, doubling the output of the factory 4-cylinder.
Of course the TOM’s GT86 does also sport a complete restyle, including a unique and rather pointy front bumper, as well as some flared carbon fiber fenders.
