Toyota looks set to introduce a lightweight, track-focused special edition of its GT86 sports car next year.

This prototype model, spotted performance testing at the Nürburgring, features what looks to be a carbonfibre bonnet with dual air intakes, as well as a new roof and boot lid which holds a large rear spoiler. New air ducts can also be seen on the bonnet, likely to aid cooling to the GT86’s 2.0-litre flat-four engine. The current car has a kerb weight of 1275kg in manual form.
