If you decide to hit the open highways for vacay 2019, consider seeing America in a Toyota 86 GT. It’s a bonafide sports car in every sense of the term. There’s a long hood. Short rear deck. Both are standard in sports car design. With this dream car, drivers get a choice. Under the hood a responsive 2.0L Boxer engine and short-throw 6-speed manual transmission or you can also opt for the available paddle-shifting 6-speed automatic for fast, smooth shifts and precise control. Either way, 86 is just as comfortable cruising down the freeway as it is on those scenic backroads. The GT features smart design and cutting-edge materials help make the body of 86 light and strong, helping 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.
There’s an abundance of amenities that are exclusive to the GT, which include heated front seats with leather-trimmed side bolsters, silver contrast stitching and dual zone climate control, along with unique aerodynamic components that are as functional as they are stylish.
The 86 GT comes equipped with a standard rear wing that expertly blends function and style. The rear wing is a stealthy matte black, while LED fog lights and color-keyed outside mirrors add a definitive touch. Inside, the GT’s standard 4.2-in. TFT Multi-Information Display (MID). It offers a stylish way to keep track of performance data, such as lap timer, horsepower/torque curves, and a G-force friction circle.
