Toyota 86 spotted at Mount Panorama in NSW

Walkers taking a lunchtime stroll around Mount Panorama yesterday were given a sneak peek of ’s new millennium sportscar, the .

The Western Advocate understands was filming a commercial for the new model at the iconic track.

The gleaming 86 was parked outside the pits about 1pm yesterday as the film crew enjoyed their lunch in the sun, but they were not keen to speak about their assignment.

“No , please,” we were told before the crew was reminded we were standing on a public road.

But we did not have long to grab a shot of the car as it was quickly removed from view and parked in the pits garage.

A quick look at ’s website, though, showed the new car was no state secret.

A press release calls the new 86 “a standard bearer for a revival of ’s sports car heritage, a machine that has been designed in every aspect to be a true driver’s car”.

“Its character is determined by its classic front-engine/rear-wheel drive configuration and the use of a compact, lightweight, free-revving 2.0-litre ‘boxer’ petrol engine,” says.
