Toyota GT 86 details:
The Toyota GT 86 has been conceived as an completely driver-focused machine, developed to deliver the core qualities of the classic sports vehicle experience. That means precise, instant response to the smallest throttle and steering inputs and the kind of performance that appeals to those for whom driving is a passion, not a necessity.
The Toyota GT 86 is built on a new platform, with a highly aerodynamic bodyshell stretched tight over the car's mechanical components. Rather than fitting a heavy, big capacity powertrain, Toyota has opted instead to go rear to its sporting roots, installing a compact, front-mounted, free-revving petrol motor that drives the back wheels.
This four-cylinder boxer unit generates 197bhp at 7000rpm, and maximum torque of 205nm at 6600rpm, giving the Toyota GT 86 brisk, engaging performance.
