The Scion version of the Toyobaru has made its way to US dealers, but with the Fuji Heavy Industries factory cranking them out at full tilt, the launch of the new sports coupe has also taken place in other place.

To promote the car in Europe, Toyota introduced a huge track day even for the GT86 to show it’s a driver’s car. However, closer to home in the Asian country of Indonesia, they did something a bit more fun - drifting on a specially arrange figure-eight course.

In fact, if you don’t believe us that they had fun, just check out the video below and see the sort of moves the GT 86 can pull off with just 200 horsepower and all-wheel drive. After that, make sure to check out the promo video released for the Toyota 86 Indonesia dedicated website.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
