The famous Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has recently went for a spin in the brand new Toyota GT 86 and what came out can be seen in the video posted below.
The Toyota GT 86 is plainly one of the best cars to come out in years, along with its sisters, the Scion FR-S, sold over-seas, and the Subaru BRZ, which is available in most markets, and if you needed a hint from someone who knows his way in cars, in order to get your hands on one, than you’ve got it. Jeremy Clarkson has recently tested the Toyota GT 86 and the conclusion was that he fell in love with it.
“The Toyota GT 86 was built by enthusiasts for enthusiasts”, was his conclusion.
As a quick reminder, the Toyota GT 86 is powered by the same engine as the Subaru BRZ or the Scion FR-S, which is the 2.0 liter four-cylinder petrol unit, borrowed by Subaru and fitted with the company’s D-4S direct injection. The petrol engine is developing a total output of 187 horsepower, at 7,000 rpm, and it has a peak torque of 205 Nm (151 lb-ft), available at 6,600 rpm. The unit is mated to a six-speed manual in standard, or to a six-speed automatic, which is available as an option. You can watch Jeremy Clarkson’s review of the Toyota GT 86 below. Enjoy!
