Toyota GT 86 to Cost Less Than GBP28,000 in Britain
Driving feel is something that’s transmitted by word of mouth, so the only way to really sell the underpowered 2+2 is to underprice it. According to Autocar magazine, Toyota insiders have said it will cost somewhere in the region of £28,000 when it reaches the UK next summer.
For the money, you get a manual six-speed gearbox, the limited slip differential and a a 53/47 weight distribution. The GT 86 will have MacPherson strut front suspension and rear double wishbone suspension.
By comparison, a brand new Scirocco GT with 210 horsepower and a manual costs £24,705, but it has one of those electronic differentials that brake the inside wheel, and it’s not as fast as the GT 86 either.
