Toyota in the UK has released details of the first GT4 racing version of the Toyota 86, due to hit the track later this month following completion of the first chassis by UK-based motorsport engineering specialist GPRM.

The track-focused powerhouse is powered by a 2.0-litre direct-injection turbocharged version of the car's four-cylinder 'boxer' engine, developed in conjunction with Nicholson McLaren Engines.

With close to 300kW on tap (double the standard car's 147kW), it's no surprise GPRM directors Gary Blackham and Roger King believe the new Toyota will be a serious contender in British GT4 competition.

Toyota GB is officially supporting the GPRM 86 program as a cost-efficient entry-level endurance racing car.
