Toyota has announced the pricing of the GT 86 TRD. The sports car will be run in limited series of just 250 units. All of them are equipped with performance features from TRD (Toyota Racing Development). GT86 is the first UK Toyota for which official TRD parts have been used to create a specific production model grade.
The GT 86 TRD will hit the market on 1 March with pricing starting from £31,495 for the manual and £32,995 for the automatic versions. It will be available in a choice of two colours: Pearl White and GT86 Black.
The sports styling includes a set of 18” cast TF6 alloys, deep front and side skirts, a rear bumper spoiler and a fast-response quad-exhaust system with a rear diffuser to increase stability. The TRD touches also extended to a branded radiator cap and fuel filler cover, while inside the car there is a new TRD gear shift lever.
Standard equipment includes HID headlamps, front fog lamps, limited slip differential, Smart Entry and Start, dual-zone climate control, analogue dials and meters, drilled aluminium pedals, sports seats, scuff plates, cruise control and the Toyota Touch multimedia system.
The performance remains unchanged – 0-100 km/h in 7.7 seconds and a top speed of 225 km/h (140mph), 0-100 km/h in 8.4 seconds and 209 km/h (130 mph) – manual/automatic.
There are slight changes in fuel consumption and emissions: 192g/km and 34.9mpg for the manual and 181g/km and 36.2mpg for the automatic (all figures official combined cycle).
