Toyota is celebrating its motorsport heritage with a new Club Series run of limited edition GT86 cars.
The first of the Club Series has been revealed, with the new GT86 Orange Edition adding high visual impact to the coupe’s status as a driver's car. It’s finished in an unmissable Solar Orange bodywork, a blazing colour that achieves extra depth of tone thanks to a special triple-coat paint process. The effect is heightened by a metallic black finish applied to the rear spoiler tips and door mirror housings, and a set of Anthracite 17-inch alloy wheels.
In the cabin the front sports seats are upholstered in black leather and Alcantara with contrast orange stitching, while the dashboard and door panel trims are covered in black suede, also with orange stitchwork. Other key equipment features include the Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system with DAB and Bluetooth, heated front seats, aluminium sports pedals, a limited slip differential and performance brake discs and pads.
With a ‘perfectly balanced’ chassis and low centre of gravity the GT86 has a drive configuration of front-mounted 197bhp naturally aspirated 2.0-litre boxer engine and rear-wheel drive. Light and lithe, Toyota says the GT86 captures the ‘spirit of Toyota’s finest sports models of the past’, such as the 2000GT of the mid-sixties’.
The new Toyota Club Series GT86 Orange Edition is on sale now, price at £28,800 with six-speed manual transmission, or £30,270 with six-speed automatic gearbox.
