As for the GR86 RZ "Since 1983 40th Anniversary Limited" edition, if you want the entire moniker, things look a bit better because we found the dedicated online portal. Well, the good news stops there, as only 200 examples of the RZ grade-based "40th Anniversary Limited" will be offered to interested customers. Toyota is also trying to quench any potential influences, so all sales of the special edition will be limited to a lottery raffle.
Applications will be accepted across Japan's GR Garage stores at a nationwide level, starting from September 25 through October 9. Naturally, this new variant is a tribute to the Toyota AE86, as the rear-wheel-drive sports coupe is unanimously seen as its spiritual successor in the company's current model range. It will be available with both manual or auto transmissions, and this retro-inspired special edition gets an assortment of mods inside and out.
On the outside, the model based on the RZ trim gets a Crystal White Pearl or Spark Red body color, dealer-installed 40th-anniversary side decals, and a GR trunk spoiler. On the inside, there's a new special interior color mixing black and red, while the 40th Anniversary GR floor mats are, again, a dealer-installed option. Pricing kicks off at 3,822,000 yen ($25,773) for the six-speed manual version and 3,920,000 yen ($26,432) for the six-speed auto.
However, keep in mind that both unique colors are optional – 55k yen ($371) for Spark Red, 33k yen ($223) for Crystal White Pearl, while the 40th Anniversary side decal and the GR trunk spoiler are 24,200 yen and 35,200 yen ($163 and $237), respectively. As always, everything costs these days. Anyway, in related news, Toyota just presented the 2024 model year for the best-selling RAV4 crossover while we're waiting on pricing info about the GR86 Trueno Edition and Subaru's BRZ tS, costing $200 more than the outgoing 2023MY.
And, of course, we are eagerly waiting to see what the Japanese automaker has in store for the rest of the year – until now, they were quite like a tidal wave with their novelties, considering the 2024 Grand Highlander, Corolla Nightshade, N400 Tacoma, or 2024 Land Cruiser superstars.
