While the Americans have the prospect of a new STI-tuned BRZ to look forward too, the Aussies are getting a new Toyota 86 Limited Edition with a number of really cool upgrades. This version is limited to just 60 units and is only available Down Under. But, alas, there is still no power boost.
Still, the 2017 Toyota 86 Limited Edition should outperform its ordinary siblings by virtue of all the dynamic upgrades it gets. The list includes Brembo brakes featuring rotors of 326mm x 30mm with four-piston calipers at the front and 316mm x 20mm rotors with two-piston calipers at back, lightweight Sachs dampers, and 17 inch wheels wrapped in grippy tires.

But most of the 60 people who will get the Toyota 86 Limited Edition will do so because of the new and exclusive visual features. This model comes in a special Solar Orange paint work complemented with 10-spoke anthracite rims and metallic black rear spoiler and door-mirror housings. The car is also an ace in terms of kit and equipment, boasting leather-accented front sports seats with perforated Alcantara trim and contrast orange stitching also found on the steering wheel, gear shift, park brake and door trim, suede-like Grandlux dashboard with an 86 logo embossed with orange stitchwork, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone climate control, a 4.2-inch multi-information display, rear spoiler, privacy glass, satellite navigation and an upgraded multimedia system with a 6.1-inch display screen and Toyota Link connected mobility.
Toyota 86 Limited Edition is based on the AU-spec GTS model and costs down there $41,490.
