In addition to it’s entrants in the ADAC Zurich 24 hour endurance event at the Nurburgring, Gazoo also exhibited a special concept/prototype Toyota 86 at the event with both a supercharger and a turbocharger yielding 320 horsepower and 310 torque. This is no guarantee that this is a prototype of a future Toyota production car… but it does show the potential.
–>See our gallery of images of the Gazoo concept here. 30+ images, including detailed images of the engine!
The engine is not production ready… but it might be aftermarket ready. You’ll also note that the concept features entirely new and wider front fenders as well as a new nose cap. Look at how well the tires and brakes work for this car. We know we want one… the question is how to get one!
