Toyota reveal GT 86 pricing

Toyota have revealed that prices for the spiritual successor to the legendary AE86, the keenly anticipated GT 86 due to arrive in June, will start at £24,995.

That money will provide you with a 200bhp, front engined, rear wheel drive sports car that’s been designed around driver engagement rather than everyday practical concerns. It’s no Lotus Elise regarding weight, but the flat-four ‘boxer’ engine car is remarkably light weight at just under 1,200kg, and has a near perfect 53/47 weight distribution, with power placement helped by a limited slip differential.

Higher specification models will be offered, although it’s likely to be just trim differences. Expect a luxury variant at around £28,000.

Toyota’s price, unlikely to be discounted thanks to short supply, compares well with the likes of the Audi TT (the 211 TFSI Sport comes in at £27,140), the BMW 125i M Sport (£26,920) and the Volkswagen Scirocco (210 GT version costs £24,960). However, £25,000 is also enough for a low mileage Nissan 370Z or even a Porsche Cayman.

Subaru have yet to reveal pricing information on their sister car, the BRZ.
