Toyota 86 gets track-focused GRMN special-edition for Japan [Video]

Toyota has previewed a special-edition track-focused Toyota 86 package that will be exhibited at the Tokyo Auto Salon in January.

The Gazoo Racing Masters of Nürburgring (GRMN) edition has received a wide range of enhancements, starting with the engine. A new exhaust system, high-flow air intake and low-friction parts help bump horsepower up to 216 horsepower from 200 ponies, while torque increases slightly to 160 lb-ft.

The 86’s suspension system has been reworked and further optimized for the Green Hell. New brakes have been added and the rear wheels have been widened by an inch to put more rubber on the track.

The GRMN package is instantly recognizable, thanks to its massive rear wing and unique carbon-fiber hood. A lightweight driveshaft, acrylic windows and other weight-saving measures have shed a total of nearly 100 pounds.

Only 100 examples will be produced, all for Japan and carrying a price tag of 6,480,000 yen (~$54,000 USD). It is unclear if any of the enhancements will be featured in US-bound variants, such as the Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ.
