Toyota Motor launched the GR 86 RWD sports coupe in Japan on October 28.

Recall that Toyota GR 86 was presented in April this year. This model replaced the GT 86, produced in 2012-2021. The coupe is equipped with a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated “boxer” Subaru with 235 hp. and a torque of 250 Nm. It works in conjunction with a 6-speed “mechanics” or 6-speed “automatic” with paddle shifters. Acceleration from standstill to 100 km / h in the GR 86 takes 6.3 seconds, while the predecessor had 7.4 seconds.

The coupe retained its own chassis, a subframe designed from scratch was used in the front of the chassis, its torsional stiffness relative to predecessor models was increased by 60% – this improved handling. The front suspension is of the MacPherson type, the rear is double wishbone.

The length, width and height of the GR 86 are 4,265, 1,775 and 1,310 mm, respectively, with a wheelbase of 2,575 mm. The curb weight of the base GR 86 with manual transmission is 1270 kilograms, which is 11 kilograms more than that of the GT 86.

The car is available in seven body colors: Crystal Black Silica, Spark Red, Crystal White Pearl, Bright Blue, Ice Silver Metallic, Magnetite Gray Metallic and Sapphire Blue.

Prices start at 2,799,000 yen (roughly $ 24,700 at current exchange rates) for a basic RC version with mechanics. For a coupe with “automatic” will have to pay at least 3,199,000 yen (about 28,200 dollars). The most expensive GR 86 in RZ trim costs 3,512,000 yen ($ 31,000).

By the way, simultaneously with the start of sales in Japan, GR Garage specialized stores began to offer tuning for the GR 86. We are talking not only about factory modifications from Toyota itself, but also spare parts and ready-made kits from third-party companies like HKS, Cusco, TOM’S, Blitz , Trust, and so on.

Earlier, we also wrote that the legendary Toyota Crown will receive a cross-version after the generation change.
