The Japanese tuner Blitz has a customised version of the Toyota GR86 that the company is using to preview the parts that it plans to offer for the new sports coupe.
Blitz has a complete body kit for the GR86. The pieces include a new front bumper and splitter that have a smoother appearance than the stock vehicle. Wider fenders and a set of side sills add style to the coupe's flanks. The back also has a different bumper with small outlets behind the wheels. A big, carbon fibre wing attaches to the rear deck.

There are a few powertrain tweaks, too. There are carbon fibre parts for the intake and cover over the air filter. The exhaust is fully titanium, and the gases exit out of four circular pipes. Blitz also adds its oil cooler kit and radiator
