Tokyo 2011: Toyota GT 86 Sports Coupe Unveiled [Live Photos]
The GT 86 is named after the legendary Toyota Corolla GT from 1986 and features a low center of gravity, while only weighing about 1,2 tons. It’s powered by a 2.0-liter boxer engine developed by Subaru and fitted with Toyota’s direct and port technology. The output of 200 hp is enough to push the sports coupe to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6 seconds flat and on to a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
The power is sent to the limited slip differential at the back via either the standard six-speed manual short-shifter or an optional six-speed automatic with paddle shifters mounted behind the wheel.
