Toyota sports cars don’t get any more iconic than the AE86 and at this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon, the car manufacturer has surprised many by unveiling both electric and hydrogen-powered AE86 conversions.

Starting with the hydrogen model, dubbed the AE86 H2 Concept, it features Toyota’s 4A-GEU 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that has been overhauled to now run on hydrogen stored in two hydrogen tanks from the Mirai.

Toyota hasn’t said how much power the car is pumping out but notes it has undergone a series of other modifications, including the fitment of upgraded Endless brakes and 14-inch Watanabe wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza RE71RS F tires. Bride driver and passenger seats have also been installed.
