When it comes to the ultimate in driver involvement, look no further than the Toyota GT86. Developed with nothing but the ultimate in raw, driving pleasure in mind, this remarkable sports car holds a space of its own.
A lightweight construction, low centre of gravity and rear wheel drive powertrain results in a car that can tackle every bend and curve with confidence and comfort. Its dramatic styling brings a modern twist to the classic coupe formula, with aggressive elements hinting at the impressive performance hiding under the skin.
Taking the classic sports car proportions — a long bonnet swooping into a dramatic roofline that leads into a short rear overhang — the GT86 then adds character of its own with sharp LED headlights, an aggressively-styled front bumper 17-inch alloy wheels and a unique rear end.
With a Pro model, an aerodynamically-styled rear spoiler lends even further to its sporting prowess. A range of accessories, such as carbon-look mirrors, mud flaps and side stripes, are available to heighten this effect, too.
A balance of comfort and driver focus is achieved in the cabin of the Toyota GT86. Throughout the interior, a premium finish is achieved with the introduction of a leather multifunction steering wheel, materials with a luscious feel to them and carbon-fibre accents that add to the sporting nature of the GT86.
Alcantara leather seats offer remarkable support for both driver and front passenger, while the driving position is perfectly optimised to heighten the connection with the road delivered by the sports machine.
Powering the Toyota GT86 is a 2.0-litre boxer engine delivering a healthy 197bhp to the rear wheels through the choice of a crisp six-speed manual or automatic gearbox for the ultimate in driver pleasure.
Beyond sheer power though, the Toyota GT86 delivers one of the most involving and engaging driving experiences on the market. Its low centre of gravity and compact dimensions combined to create a chassis that perfectly communicates the road surface to the driver for ultimate harmony.
World-class safety technology features on the Toyota GT86. As standard, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) is on hand to prevent skidding when grip is lost, while Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) allows for a smooth getaway when pulling away on steeper inclines.
Sitting centre stage in the interior of the car is Toyota Touch 2 multimedia, featuring built-in satellite navigation and Bluetooth connectivity — allowing you to curate your own perfect driving playlist.
