The Toyota 86 Cup Edition has been released to mark Toyota’s involvement in the VLN endurance racing championship series, hosted at Germany’s famed Nurburgring circuit.
Exclusively built and sold in Germany, and limited to just 86 cars, the Toyota 86 Cup Edition (called the GT86 in Europe) sees owners receive not only a rare vehicle with unique interior and exterior features, but a ticket for two to a VIP customer event at the Nurburgring as well.
With a boot lid spoiler, racing stripes and a set of 18-inch OZ Ultraleggera racing alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Nero GT tyres adding to the Japanese sports car’s exterior look, Alcantara dominates the interior covering the steering wheel, sections of the doors, seats and dashboard while a brushed aluminium plate next to the leather wrapped handbrake displays the individual car’s serial number.
The Toyota 86 Cup Edition will be available in Germany from April, offered in Dynamic White Pearl, Furious Black Mica and Racing Red, with a €2860 ($3500) premium attached to it.
Sadly, while Toyota was celebrating its entry into the German racing series with the 86 Cup Edition, the first round of the VLN championship was cancelled due to poor weather conditions at the soon-to-be-sold 20.8km Nordschleife circuit, with snow in many sections of the track forcing organisers to abandon the event.
