The star of the Tokyo Auto Salon, the GRMN Sports FR Concept is a GT 86 build by Toyota’s motorsports partner Gazoo Racing and inspired by the legendary Supra itself.
With unmistakably original bodywork, the real story lies under the hood where Toyota has mated the 4-cylider boxer engine with both a supercharger and a turbocharger to deliver 330 hp.

As for the sheetmetal, it helps transform the GT 86 (sold here as the Scion FR-S) from a fun weekend toy, to a genuine sports car that looks capable of tangling with a Porsche. Along with the Supra-inspired taillights, flared bodywork, massive rear spoiler and quad-exhaust system, the car itself is 4-inches longer than a conventional GT 86 and a total of 3-inches wider.
The wider body also makes room for some big 18-inch wheels with wired tires measuring 245 up front and 265 in the rear.
The customization doesn’t stop outside the car either with a white and black cabin, including beautifully stitched two-tone leather racing seats.
