The new 2018 Toyota 86 GT Black is kissed with a smart design and cutting-edge materials that help make the body of the auto light and strong, which is a great assist to boost efficiency and overall performance. This design also places the 2.0-liter Boxer engine low to the ground, helping optimize the center of gravity and front/rear weight distribution. It’s a platform built for racing, but still civilized on the streets, and it gives you the best of all worlds.

 The cabin brings plenty of comfort to every journey. Granlux trim wraps accents on the dashboard, door panels and upper-seat bolsters to bring a sense of sophistication. Aluminum sport pedals and sport gauges with a large center tach.  Standard tech includes a large 7-in. touch-screen display, auto-dimming rearview mirror with integrated backup camera,2 Bluetooth®9 connectivity, and the Display Audio system. It all makes for a cabin that better connects you to your drive.

 Amenities exclusive to the GT models include heated front seats with leather-trimmed side bolsters, silver contrast stitching and dual zone climate control. Unique aerodynamic components are as functional as they are stylish. And with the 86 GT Black, contrasting gloss- and matte-black trim pieces add a hint of menace to the elegance.

The all-new 86 GT Black series amplifies the attitude with a matte-black rear wing and Raven-black end wing plates. This Raven-black finish is also applied to the standard heated power mirrors, further enhancing this aggressive look.

86 GT takes the driver-centric cabin to a whole new level. Silver contrast stitching accents the leather-lined bolsters of the heated sport front seats, steering wheel, shift boot and door cards. A unique instrument panel, featuring toggle-style switches and Push Button Start, further speaks to this car’s performance pedigree.
