Toyota has unveiled a new limited edition version of the GT86, known in Japan simply as the 86, called 14R60. Exclusively for the JDM, this model is a performance-oriented GT86 with a lot of track-focused parts but sadly no extra power.
We don’t know why Toyota is reluctant to release a more powerful version of the GT86 even in Japan which is one of the few markets the car is actually selling rather well. But they still refrain from boosting the power of that flat-four engine and seek performance through lightness.
So its 200 horsepower engine remains unchanged, Toyota 86 14R60 should outperform a normal models seeing as it boasts a lightweight aero kit featuring revised bumpers, spoilers, wings and canards, flared arches, and 18-inch forged magnesium wheels. Also exclusive to the Toyota 86 14R60 is a sport exhaust system with a twin tailpipe located in the center of the bumper. That’s a first for the GT86.
The diet continues inside where you find lightweight sport seats wrapped in Alcantara with orange stitching, carbon fiber trim pieces, suede steering wheel, and TRD floor mats. So it is not stripped-out completely, but you get the idea.
More serious upgrades on this car include the addition of a limited-slip differential, powerful brakes, adjustable suspension, and strut tower brace and V-brace which make it suitable for track work. Toyota 86 14R60 will not go on sale outside Japan, but it may give some ideas on how to tune your GT86 if you want to track it.
