Toyota and racing partner Gazoo have revealed their new GRMN Sports FR Concept Platinum coupe (fellas, really, could you have given it a longer name? - Ed) at this week's Tokyo Auto Salon.

Based on the still box-fresh 86 coupe, the Platinum arrives on the heels of last May's Sports FR concept, packing yet more power and a more outlandish look.

On the styling front, Gazoo has blessed the 86 with new front and rear styling, including unique new headlights and tail-lights.

Combined with new bumpers, widened guards and side ports, the package gives the 86 something of a 'mini Supra' look.

There's also a vented bonnet at the front and a diffuser at the back end, the latter flanked by large exhaust tips and topped off by a sizeable racing wing.

The whole package rides on 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 245/40 rubber at the front, growing to 265/35 at the rear wheels. Inside is a full cage, racing seats and a track-focused steering wheel. And all the rest.

Perhaps the real party trick however is what lies under the bonnet: an even more powerful version of the enhanced boxer engine revealed in the Sports FR.

Again using turbo- and super-charging, the engine's output has been boosted to 243kW and 431Nm - up from an already impressive 235kW and 421Nm.

That package is matched with a six-speed manual transmission, again sending power to the rear wheels.

Performance figures have not been released, but something on the south side of a 5.0 seconds sprint to 100km/h is likely.

Catch the video below to hear the engine do its thing.
