GRMN Sports FR Concept Introduced (Press Release)

Introducing the all-new track-only GRMN Sports FR Concept

  • Twincharged format, featuring both a turbo- and supercharger
  • Maximum power output of 235 kW (320 PS)
  • Specially tuned by GRMN for outstanding track performance

The all-new GRMN1 Sports FR Concept is a twincharged track performer with its roots in the recently launched road-going Toyota GT86 sports coupe.

The concept shares the same 2.0-litre flat-four boxer engine with the road-going model, although the targeted maximum power output is now increased to 235 kW (320 PS) with the addition of both a turbo- and supercharger. Torque is also increased to a maximum of 421 Nm, all of which gives the GRMN Sports FR Concept outstanding acceleration through the concept model’s broad powerband.

The concept promises superior handling performance with its dedicated GRMN-tuned suspension and larger brakes. The concept also comes with 18” wheels, wider tyres in the rear and a quad-exhaust layout, reinforcing its track performance credentials. The GRMN Sports FR Concept also sits closer to the ground than its road-going counterpart, at just 95 mm.

A specially designed and unique sports body kit is fitted to the GRMN Sports FR Concept giving it a more dynamic on-track visual presence thanks to its wider and more angular front and rear bumpers. The race-specific rear spoiler also serves to enhance the concept model’s aerodynamic performance.

The interior is also equipped with a roll cage, bucket seats and four-point racing harnesses. The centre console also sees the addition of turbo boost, water and oil temperature gauges.

The GRMN Sports FR Concept was conceived as a design study for motorsports enthusiasts around the world.

Toyota will display the all-new GRMN Sports FR Concept at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed in the United Kingdom between June 29 and July 1. See the GRMN Sports FR Concept and other Toyota and Lexus road and race cars from past and present at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
