TOYOTA GR86 10th ANNIVERSARY EDITION CELEBRATES A DECADE OF AFFORDABLE AND EXCITING SPORTS PERFORMANCE

Toyota Australia is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the 86 sports car with the release of the limited-run GR86 10th Anniversary Edition, which arrives in Australian showrooms this month priced from $46,700 plus on-road costs1.

Limited to just 86 examples locally, the GR86 10th Anniversary Edition is available with the choice of either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission to suit buyer preference.

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales, Marketing and Franchise Operations Sean Hanley said the addition of the 10th Anniversary Edition reflected the popularity of the driver-focused sports car in Australia.

"When it launched in 2012, the first-generation 86 struck a chord with those looking for an affordable sports car representing great value with Toyota reliability," Mr Hanley said.

"This new 10th Anniversary Edition channels the spirit of the original 86 while introducing a range of unique design touches, along with all upgrades that the GR86 delivered when we launched it last year."

Based on the flagship GTS variant, the 10th Anniversary Edition GR86 is immediately identifiable by its unique Solar Orange exterior paint scheme2 - a nod to the original "hachi roku" first revealed to the world in late 2011.

The orange theme is continued inside the vehicle, with contrast stitching applied to the steering wheel, handbrake lever and boot, shift boot, seats and door trim.

Orange stripe accents also appear on the Ultrasuede®3/leather accented seats, while the inside of the door trims feature 10th Anniversary orange embroidery for a special touch.

Lastly, silver instrument panel moulding has been changed to black for a stealthier look.

Being based on the range-topping variant of the GR86, the 10th Anniversary Edition comes with a generous equipment list including 18-inch black alloy wheels, adaptive LED headlights, heated front seats, aluminium pedals, an 8.0-inch multimedia display, 7.0-inch multi-information display and two-zone automatic climate control.

Like all GR86 grades, the 10th Anniversary Edition is powered by a 2.4-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine developing 174kW at 7000rpm and 250Nm at 3700rpm, with power being sent exclusively to the rear wheels.

Transmission choices consist of a six-speed manual or six-speed torque-converter automatic transmission, with driving dynamics aided by the standard fitment of a limited-slip Torsen®3 differential on the rear axle.

Five different vehicle stability control settings are also available ranging from full support to being completely switched off, for those who plan to take their GR86 to track days.

GAZOO Racing Club members were offered the opportunity to acquire priority access for expressions of interest when ordering the strictly limited 10th Anniversary Edition, which is available for purchase from March 23.
