Japan’s largest car maker will soon offer buyers in its home market the Toyota 86 Style Cb, a restyled version of the rear-wheel drive sports car with a softer front-end design.
Based on the mid-level GT trim, the 86 Style Cb features a drastically reworked front. The car’s most prominent feature is its unique oval headlight units, which blend into a longer and rounder front bumper. Despite these changes, the Style Cb retains the standard 86 bonnet.
The Style Cb’s air intake is graced with horizontal chrome slats and a wide set of LED indicators. The regular car’s side gills, with their stylised 86 piston logo, have been junked in favour of a set of LED illuminated fins.
The rear of the 86 Style Cb seems to unchanged from regular 86 models, although the model pictured above does feature a large deck spoiler from the 86’s option list.
Style Cb buyers can also option a contrasting colour for their car’s upper body section, as well as different alloy wheels.
On the inside, the Toyota 86 Style Cb has been fitted with a leather steering complete with red Cb logo, white backgrounds for some of its dials and a dark woodgrain-style panel across the dashboard.
The 86 Style Cb goes on sale in Japan from April with either a six-speed manual or six-speed auto. It will be the most expensive model in the 86 range, with a retail price starting from 4.18 million yen ($45,000), a 1.28 million yen ($13,800) premium over the regular GT upon which it is based.
