Toyota has teamed up with its in-house tuning division, TRD, to make a hot version of the GT 86, or Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S as it's sold here. But the TRD version won't be sold here. But don't get too angry: it's still not supercharged or turbocharged; it's just fitted with some racier bodywork and a high-flow exhaust.

The 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition follows a similar path, but actually cuts weight by deleting the rear seat, and improves lap times (if only slightly) with a firmer, more track-tuned suspension.

And the Chicago Auto Show is still underway, having closed out its first day with a fair number of new special-edition cars. If you missed any of it, or just want to keep up with what's left, be sure to visit our show page hub at the link below.

You'll find all of this and more from around the High Gear Media network right here in Motor Authority's car news headlines.
