New Toyota GT 86 Prices Announced

The UK prices for the will start at £24,995 ($36,739.57 AUD) when it hits the showrooms in June 2012.

We have been pondering that for months. This two-door sports car is, according to its manufacturer, the ‘world’s most compact four-seater’. As such, its length is 4,240mm which is only 290mm more than the Ford Fiesta. Never fear though, good things come in small packages. The styling, for starters, is major a plus. This coupé looks striking and aggressive thanks to its bulging bonnet and purposeful grill. It is clearly worth squinting through a magnifying lens to admire this tiny car’s sweeping profile.

The GT has a 2.0-litre flat-four boxer engine, that can be teamed with six-speed manual or six-speed auto transmission. This produces 197bhp, which is plenty in a car the size of a mouse. The race to 62mph takes around seven seconds, which is how long it takes to decide you love the GT . Top speed is in the region of 145mph. This beauty also has super-sharp handling thanks – in part – to its limited-slip differential and near- perfect front to rear weight distribution. Furthermore, whereas the Toyota GT has ABS and an electronic stability programme, these preserve the thrill of motoring by ‘butting- out’ unless absolutely necessary. Rejoice then, the Toyota GT is finally here. Best hold tight.
