There's a new Toyota GT86 special edition!

And this one you want to know about, as there's a new Performance Pack

Sound the special edition klaxon! The Toyota GT86 now comes in a new shade of blue, and it could be the best new-school Hachi-Roku yet.

Seriously. Because beyond the Electric Blue paint – which looks like the satisfying middle ground between Porsche’s Riviera and Mexico blues – it comes with the option of a new Performance Pack.

It isn’t the extra 50bhp we all wish the GT86 had, but it is a round of choice improvements everywhere else, with new Sachs suspension (just like the hugely fun Toyota Yaris GRMN), Brembo brakes and fancier alloy wheels. This really could be the best out-of-the-factory GT86 yet.

We’d assume the pack will make its way onto other GT86s in time, but for now you’ll have to pay £30,455 for the exceedingly tongue-twisting Toyota GT86 Club Series Blue Edition Performance Pack, which is around £2,400 more than the GT86 Pro it’s based upon.

A Blue Edition without the Performance Pack only saves £475, though, showing just how smart a buy those new chassis bits are. Given this is the second in the Club Series (following the GT86 Orange Edition), we’re excited about what comes next. Viper Green and – finally – more power? Please, Toyota?
