The Toyota S-FR turned heads when it made its global premiere at the Tokyo Motor Show with its sporty yet simple design. Now, Toyota Gazoo Racing has reimagined the concept as a track-ready race car and it is set to debut at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon.
With wide flared fenders, eye-catching hood vents, and carbon fiber reinforced plastic canards and spoilers, this concept represents Toyota‘s vision of the S-FR as a performance vehicle born for the track. The original concept imagined a rear-wheel drive sports car that looked like a modern update of the Toyota Sports 800.
The S-FR Racing Concept now wears flared fenders that add about 1.6 inches to the stock width, and the hood now features massive vents to cool that little engine. At the rear, the S-FR has a massive mounted wing and diffuser to keep it stuck to the track. To lower the center of gravity, Gazoo have slashed the roadster’s height by about two inches from the concept version.
Toyota has not provide any details about performance modifications, but you can spot larger drilled brake rotors through the wheels. It would be fun if the new hood signals a wilder engine than the 130hp 1.5 liter we will be seeing in the production version.
