This year at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon, Gazoo Racing unveiled their version of Toyota 86 called the GRMN FR Concept Platinum. The supposed spark behind this concept was the beloved Supra.  One of the things that caught our attention was the addition of a Twincharger system. No we don't mean twin turbo. We mean a supercharger AND a Turbo! Looks like Gazoo maybe poking at Toyota to bring back a forced induction concept to the market. The twin chargers will help it shine in lower and higher RPM's as well.  In addition to the Twin charger setup, Gazoo has thoroughly upgraded the braking, exhaust system and suspension.

330hp/ 431tq powered through a 6-speed manual gearbox turning 265/35/18s in the rear.

In addition to the souped up drive-train Gazoo has gone through the interior with custom seating, safety harness's, and a cage . Exterior lighting has also been upgraded with a sleeker mean look modeled after the Supra but with an updated LED design.
