2012 Toyota GT 86

Toyota’s eagerly awaited, compact 2+2 sports car, the GT86, is an entirely driver-oriented vehicle. It gives form to the pure, intrinsic joy of driving through precise, instantaneous response to even the smallest throttle or steering inputs, for those who regard driving as a passion rather than a necessity. Based on an entirely new platform, the GT86 has a low, highly aerodynamic bodyshell stretched tight over the engineering hard points, making it the world’s most compact four seat sports car design.

Shunning a heavy, large displacement powertrain for its performance, GT86 returns to Toyota’s sporting roots with the world’s only combination of a compact, front-mounted, naturally aspirated, free-revving, horizontally opposed ‘boxer’ petrol engine and rear-wheel drive. This unique powertrain format combines with light weight, low inertia and a low centre of gravity to realise the best possible power-to-weight ratio. These attributes give the GT86 lively, accessible performance, highly engaging, readily exploitable dynamic abilities with minimal electronic intrusion, and maximum driving pleasure.
