Toyota UK has announced a new special edition model of the GT86 will go on sale in July this year. Known as the Toyota GT86 Blanco, the car retains the base coupé model’s performance and handling with unique styling and equipment add-ons.
Priced at £28,500 (RM168,267), the GT86 Blanco’s body is finished in GT White Pearl paint with contrasting red and grey body decals running from the hood all the way to the rear boot lid. The same theme is applied to the side mirrors while the front lip and rear diffuser are highlighted in red.
The standard wheels are swapped out for new slim ten-spoke design 18-inch alloys with an anthracite finish and the GT86 name embossed.
Inside, the 2+2 seater coupé's sport seats now have full leather upholstery and come with a heater feature as well. As a sign to mark this car as a special edition model (if the exterior highlights aren’t enough), each car will feature its own numbered plaque on the centre console, indicating its place in the special edition production run.
Customers will also be able to specify their car with a nine-speaker JBL sound system and Toyota’s Touch and Go touchscreen-controlled multimedia and navigation package.
The UK spec Toyota GT86 is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder boxer petrol engine which outputs 200hp and 205Nm of torque, sent through either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission and to the rear wheels.
