Introducing our Fensport GT86 S ..... Street Project
Due to the amazing pace that we are developing products for the GT86 / BRZ platform we have started another completely different project to help our development! We will be pushing for performance for sure, but this time we want a really great road car that looks fantastic yet still be subtle enough to enjoy on the road!
Our base car is a metalic black GT86 automatic. The reason we chose an automatic this time was for us to develop products, mapping and performance products especially for the auto owners. We also want to test the platform and prove reliability of both the car and our products.
The very first job was to fit the fabulous Five Axis kit along with their 19" S5:F wheels. This kit is going to be launched in the UK as a Five Axis Ltd Edition. The gorgeous wheels are wrapped in Toyo Proxes T1 Sport tyres. Finishing off the visuals is a Beat Sonic aerial and providing extra performance is a Blitz panel filter and Fensport mapped Ecutek ecu.
The very first outing for the car was to the wedding of our very own MD :)
The fabulous Avo Turboworld Stage 1 Turbo kit has now been fitted, totally transforming the car and running 0.55 bar of boost, the kit pushes power to approximately 270bhp. We are testing the kit with a completely standard car including air filter and exhaust. Ecutek mapping is now complete and a dyno test will follow soon.
The car also benefits from Koni Sport top adjustable shocks, whiteline offset top mounts and Tein lowering springs. An uprated rear M Factory Helical LSD and the front brakes are uprated with K Sport 330mm discs & 8 piston calipers.
Huge thanks to Autocar and Toyota GB for hiring Bedford Autodrome and producing a stunning video of both our street and race GT86's going up against a standard GT86 and also a Mclaren MP4-12C for comparison. We had a fantastic day and the GT86R emerged as the victor :) :)

Further developments are planned to include
Whiteline anti roll bars
Summit strut & body bracing
Dual din head unit with navigation and reverse camera etc
Beat Rush rear upper spoiler & aerial
This car will remain totally road legal and will be used a test platform as well as a demo car for customers. We will also enter a round or 2 of the Toyota Sprint Series as well as attend some of the summer shows.
