A Toyota GT 86 Turbo, with a limited slip differential, has been recently crashed in Japan during a drift fail.
We have always said here on inautonews.com that where ever there will be exotic cars, there will also be exotic car crashes, and even if the Toyota GT 86 isn’t that exotic, this might actually be the first crash ever recorded, so we couldn’t leave it aside. According to the guys at autoblog.nl, the Toyota GT 86 below was being used in the D1 Professional Drift Series in Japan, and the model was lightweight, turbocharged and came with a limited slip differential.
Unfortunately we don’t have any more details on the turbocharged Toyota GT 86, but as a small reminder, the regular version of the Japanese rear-wheel drive sports car is powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine, borrowed from Subaru and fitted with the company’s D-4S direct injection technology, the same unit used in the BRZ too. The 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. Power is being sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. The Toyota GT 86 has a starting price of 29,990 euros in Europe.
