Toyota 86 starts at $25.600 in Japan image

Toyota has recently announced that the 86 sports car will have a starting price of 25.600 USD in Japan.

According to the Japanese based car manufacturer, the Toyota 86 will be offered on the local market in four trim levels, the Customize Grade, the G, the GT and the GT Limited, and the cheapest version will be priced at 25.600 USD, while the most expensive one, the GT Limited, will cost 38.200 USD. Toyota says that the entry level version will come without air conditioning and with unpainted bumpers, for some racing and customizing purposes. The six-speed automatic transmission, the aluminum pedals, three-spoke steering wheel and the limited-slip differential will be among the extra-cost options.

Production of the Toyota 86 will start on the local market on the 12th of March, but dealers are already taking orders. The Toyota 86 will go to the United States as the Scion FR-S, and even if the automaker didn’t announce its official starting price yet, the company said that the model will cost under $30.000.

As a reminder, the Toyota GT-86 is 4.240 mm long, 1.285 mm tall and 2.570 mm wide, being the most compact four-seat sports car on the market. The weight distribution is 53:47 (front to rear). The model is powered by the Subaru borrowed 2.0 liter four-cylinder with the company’s D-4S direct injection technology, which is sending the 197 HP at 7.000 rpm and 205 Nm of torque (151 lb-ft) at 6.600 rpm to the rear wheels.

    Great looking car! Not sure about the name? Think maybe should have reintroduced the Celica badge and added the models as FR, GT GTR etc. 86 reminds me of an old Mitsubishi Magna I had in 1986.
