It looks great in the flesh too, especially in Lightning Red. This car will stand out from the sea of mundane looking cars on the road.
Check this out! The fully specced top-of-the-range TRD Performance package 86.
GS model will come with digital speedo.
Push these buttons to arouse your senses.
The automatic gearshift column looks like a manual one! So cool!
Cars lined up for the media to blast around. Everyone was waiting in anticipation.
The 86 makes use of it's low centre of gravity and 200 bhp unit to power through quick directional changes with aplomb. The automatic variant is already a nice drive, but the manual shifter is an added joy to use with its short throw and slick shifting action.
VSC stability control ensured that if you don't intend to make use of the 86's rear-wheel drive 'abilities', you'd still be safe around a wet corner even at high speeds.
But if you want to, this car will still gladly go sideways!
Handsome in black too.
We'll share more when we get the full test-drive. But for now, we'd put our money down on this one. You should too.
