Toyota revealed official pricing of the new 86 Sports Coupe for the British market ahead of the car’s launch in summer of 2012.
They are currently taking orders for the Toyota 86, for £24,995. That’s the base MSRP for the entry-level version. further pricing and specification details will be announced nearer the time of launch. Usually the final showroom price is a bit higher than what has been initially announced.
That sounds like a good price considering what you get in return. Toyota 86 is a rear-wheel-drive sports car, powered by a 2.0 liter flat-four engine which is mounted behind the front axle and low down to give the car a low center of gravity. That makes it, a least on paper, a great handling car.
The engine, made by Subaru, churns out 200hp, of which only 170 will actually make it to the rear wheels. The power is transmitted via a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, through a limited slip differential.
Toyota is currently working on a hotter version of the 86 with more power, so you might want to wait for that one to arrive.
