Further information on the opening of orders for this eagerly anticipated new model will be announced next week.

GR86 is an evolution of the much-respected and multiple-award-winning GT86 coupe and will take its place alongside GR Supra and GR Yaris in a “power of three” GR – Gazoo Racing – line-up. It promises to deliver sharper handling and responsiveness, extra power, new styling and a more comprehensive equipment specification. As with its stablemates, it has been honed with engineering and design expertise drawn directly from Toyota Gazoo Racing’s world championship-winning motorsport activities.

GR86 is offered in a single model grade, with the option of six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

At launch, it comes with an on-the-road price tag of £29,995 for the manual model and £32,085 for the automatic version.

First customers can take advantage of a PCP agreement through Toyota Financial Services with monthly repayments of £299 (42-month contract, £4,777 customer deposit, with 4.9 per cent APR Representative) for the GR86 manual. Details and terms and conditions are available here: https://www.toyota.co.uk/new-cars/gr86/ ... tail-offer

Power, performance and handling

GR86 adopts the same drivetrain configuration as GT86, with a front-mounted “boxer” four-cylinder engine driving the rear wheels. It’s a larger unit – up from 2.0 to 2.4 litres – and it produces more power and torque: maximums of 231bhp and 250Nm compared to GT86’s 197bhp and 205Nm. As well as giving faster 0-62mph acceleration – 6.3 seconds manual, 6.9 seconds auto – it delivers power more smoothly, with no drop-off in torque.

The chassis has a lower centre of gravity and improved, 50:50 front-rear weight balance. Together with increased body rigidity, sports-tuned suspension and a limited-slip differential (as standard) these changes secure even more rewarding dynamic performance.
