One-Off Toyota GT86 Collection Pays Homage to its Heritage
Toyota GT86 is one of the most famous and wanted sports cars in company's line-up of vehicles. Well, the news that has just arrived is that Toyota is paying tribute to its heritage with classic a fleet of six GT86 coupes dressed in classic liveries. They are actually a celebration of the great Toyota race and rally cars of the past. The one-off liveries have been achieved with the help of vinyl wraps, lowered springs, stainless steel exhaust and retro-styled wheels.
As a matter of fact, many of the great characteristics of the GT86 have their roots in the generations of classic performance Toyota sports cars. So, each car is inspired by a different model, which was famous in the racing competitions during the last 50 years.

The fleet of the six starts with the two versions of the 2000GT, Ove Andersson's 1970s Celica 1600GT rally car, the IMSA GTU Celica famous for its wins in the 80s, the World Rally Championship Celica GT-Four and the Esso Ultron Tiger Supra from the All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship.
Behind the vinyl application we can see the work of the experts at Motor Mode. They have literally mimicked the key elements from the original liveries onto the GT86. In addition, the cars also received new springs that have brought them closer to the ground. The right height was actually lowered by 40mm.
At last, rounding out the retro-styling are the Rota wheels in different finishes and the Milltek Sport stainless steel exhaust systems.
If you happen to be at Goodwood Festival of Speed's Moving Motor Show on 25 June, then you'll have the opportunity to ride any of the coupes in the one-off collection, because they will be available for public drive. It is also the place, where they will make their public debut. There will be also a static display supporting the GT86 Drift Experience at Goodwood's race circuit.
