Limited edition GT86 comes to Britain

Toyota’s bringing the TRD eighty-six to the UK. Still no more power though

Toyota GT86 TRD

Yes, Toyota's confirmed that it'll be flogging its Racing Department's GT86 in Britain at this year's slightly moist Goodwood Festival of Speed. AIRPUNCH.

When the TRD Hachi-Roku (Eight-Six in Japanese, language fans) was first revealed at the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon, it was touted as a home-market-only affair, but the manufacturer's confirmed that it'll be floating some cars over to Blighty.

The car shown at Goodwood's got a full aero body kit with a front chinstrap, side skirts, boot spoiler and a rear apron incorporating a diffuser and a new set of twin exhausts. Woof.

There's a also a set of 18-inch black alloys with teeny tiny low-profile tyres, upgraded suspension and portlier brakes.

Sadly, though, the 2.0-litre flat-four 197bhp engine isn't touched. Not that that stops the GT86 being a very fine car indeed...

Any TopGear.commers fancy one?

Now share it...
