Along with Subaru’s BRZ, Toyota’s GT 86 is one of the most anticipated cars for 2012. The wait, as far pricing goes is over, at least in the UK, where the car will cost just £24,995 (AUD$36, 956). That folks, is the on-road price for the entry-level version, with further variants and pricing expected closer to the launch date in June.
Toyota is claiming that the GT 86 will be “Entirely driver focused and offers a classic front-engine, rear-wheel drive set-up in a light, compact and nimble chassis.”
Under the bonnet is a 2.0-litre flat-four “boxer” engine that produces 147kW and mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. For extra traction and grip there’s a limited slip differential.
UK orders have already commenced and the queue for the GT 86 is said to be growing larger every week.
