Pure driver appeal
Control, grip and stability that put you back in touch with the road
The GT86 was designed around key principles: lightweight body, front-mounted engine, rear-wheel drive, great balance and handling - the perfect blend of pedigree and performance. The GT86 with its power train and driving position as low and as far back as possible to deliver great power and handling.
Classic driving dynamics
Naturally aspirated for consistent torque it delivers precise, instant response and consistently exhilarating performance through the entire rev range – connecting the driver to the road in a way that power alone can’t achieve. Its torque-sensing limited slip differential and two-mode VSC system lets you switch between driving modes. You can also switch the system off completely for a fully engaging GT86 experience.
Smooth, responsive gear changes
The manual transmission delivers quick, precise shifting through close-stacked ratios for agile performance, while the automatic achieves the world’s fastest torque converter shift speed – at just two tenths of a second. Steering wheel mounted shift switches prioritise responsiveness in upshift for rapid changes and a consistently smooth experience.
Elegant and focused
Designed around the driver
Simple, bold, uncluttered – the cockpit is designed around the driver. The seating position is low; you’re gripped by the sculpted seats, perfectly positioned for the sports style aluminium pedals. Aviation style gearshift switches and controls are intuitively positioned - the buckskin covered sports steering wheel and short throw gearshift are natural and instinctively designed for sports driving.

Technology that puts you back in control
For whatever the town or track throws at you
The essence of a sports car is driver control. High-tech driver aids can get in the way of the skill and emotion of driving. The GT86 is engineered to give you complete control, equipped with unobtrusive technology designed only to enhance your experience.
Smart Entry and Start system, cruise control, scuff plates and the Toyota Touch touchscreen control system for unprecedented in-car convenience – all come as standard. Touch lets you control the six-speaker audio system, provides hands-free call answering with Bluetooth technology, and lets you choose your soundtrack to the road with music streaming, and a USB port.
