Toyota will announce its new GT86 atv at the 2017 Barcelona World Champions on Saturday.
The car is the first to be introduced to the FIA World Endurance Championship in the series’ 25-year history.
It will be tested at the end of the month in Barcelona and will be on display at the opening round of the 2017 GTE Pro championship on November 11.
The GT86, which is powered by a 4.0-litre turbocharged inline-six, is the only GT86 to use the V8 engine used in the GT86 and GT-R.
It will also feature the V6-powered 2.0T turbodiesel and a hybrid system.
The new car will be based on the Toyota GT-F and will feature a hybrid drivetrain similar to the Toyota Celica.
The front-wheel drive car will use a 1.6-litres twin-turbocharged V8, a powerplant similar to that found in the Toyota Yaris and a 1,100kW twin-scroll turbocharged powertrain.
The rear-wheel-drive version will be a 2.5-litry twin-rotor V6, which uses the same turbocharger as the 2.6T engine found in both the Celica and the Toyota GTR.
The Japanese manufacturer will also use its own aerodynamic technology and a new aerodynamics package.
Its main competitor for the 2017 championship will be the Audi A3.
The A3 is currently the only entry in the World Endurance Championships that can use a 2-litrev V6 engine, which was introduced in 2015.
The engine has been an integral part of Toyota’s GT86 since the debut of the GT-H in 2015, but it has been used in only one of the four GT-86s currently fielded by Toyota.
The company plans to launch its next entry in that class in 2019, but there is no date yet for the introduction of the new GT-O, which will use the same V6 found in its 2-liter V8-powered ZL1 supercar.
