The 2012 iteration of Toyota's NGTC-spec British Touring Car challenger has been unveiled at the final weekend of the 2011 season at Silverstone.

The current car – introduced at the start of this season to fit the brand new regulations has improved greatly during the season, driver Frank Wrathall and the Dynojet team transforming their entry into a genuine podium contender during the second half of the season.

The 2012 model aims to build upon this foundation, chassis development squad GPR Motorsport promising a number of improvements.

The new car integrates many of the styling and dynamic improvements that will feature on the new Avensis road car, as well as many enhancements designed specifically with racing in mind.

“There is a lot more airflow through the new front end,” says GPRM's Gary Blackham, “and that will aid engine cooling and performance, with more air flowing to the intercooler. But the new front end and styling changes are not the end of the story, because many lessons were learned during the Toyota's maiden season of competition and there are significant changes under the skin also.”

The new car – in white – will be on display in the Silverstone paddock throughout the BTCC weekend for fans to cast their eyes over.
