Toyota Working On Mysterious GT86 Special Edition for This Summer

As you know, the sheer horsepower-for-money ratio of the Toyota GT86 has had a polarising effect on the market. Nevertheless, the carmaker is now working on a mysterious special edition of the sportscar.

Toyota made the announcement while releasing the 2015 updates for the GT86, but didn’t want to offer any details on the matter.

This is not the end of the GT86 story for 2015: a new special edition model will be joining the range this summer, details to be announced soon,” Toyota said.

By the looks of it, we may be facing the extra-equipment-and-different-colors type of edition. At least this is the sort of conclusion we can draw based on what 2015 has brought for the standard GT86.

The announcement, which comes from Toyota’s British arm, is led by a reduction for the entry-level price. Thus, the 2015 GT86 is GBP300 cheaper, to which the company has added an “on-going customer offer” that brings a GBP505 saving. As a result, the entry-level Primi model comes with an on-the-road price of GBP22,195.

The rest of the range keeps its pricing. Nevertheless, at the other end of the line-up we find the Aero model, which features Gloss Black 18-inch rims and a GT86 Orange paint job. As of this year, the model is no longer available with an automatic since the six-speed gearbox wasn’t exactly agile. In addition, these larger wheels can also be ordered as an option on the base model.

We’re still waiting for Toyota to do more in order to increase the customer appeal of what is otherwise a sweetly agile sportscar.
