While some of the shown here have been sent in to us, we compiled the rest of the GTS Aero kit ourselves using a very cool new feature of the website, link here. Once there, be sure to select the GTS Option pack button to start.

According to Toyota, the package is designed to reduce aerodynamic drag and increase down force for greater handling stability, while maintaining the vehicle’s wind-cheating 0.27 drag coefficient.

The aero package consists of a new front bumper skirt, side skirts, rear bumper skirt and large rear spoiler.

It is available from Toyota for $3,000 (not including dealer delivery, government and statutory charges and optional extras) and is exclusive to the high-grade Toyota 86GTS model (manual and automatic).

Specifications:

The front bumper skirt features vertical fins to control air entering the front grille and dual canards at 12 degree angles to optimise handling stability, according to Toyota.

The side skirt design includes a rounded leading edge to assist airflow evacuation from the front wheel housing. The rear bumper skirt has a profile that projects horizontally, to manage air turbulence from the front and fin and assist in evacuating under-body airflow. The large rear spoiler features horizontal ‘winglets’ on the uprights, to help generate down force, optimising for handling stability. The rear spoiler centre section is finished in gloss black on all exterior colour offerings.

The aero package is available from June 18.
