Toyota GT-86 reveals

The final name ends up being a tribute to the famous and fantastic Corolla AE86 known in Portugal as the Toyota Corolla GT Twin Cam 16v, keeping the rear wheel drive model like that and nothing more. Known as the EWuropa GT-86, the U.S. will be named FR-S and will be sold as Scion and Toyota in Japan is only 86.
In addition to the rear-wheel drive, the GT-86 uses the same block of two liters of boxer Subaru BRZ achieved with 200 hp at 7000 rpm and a torque of 205 Nm at 6600 rpm, which claims the second Toyota, offers impressive performance for a model that weighs only 1180 pounds. The maximum speed is 250 km / h.

According to Toyota, the GT-86 measures 4240 mm long and 1285 mm in height, was not disclosed to wide. Either way, it is a very compact car that Toyota is the four-seater sports world's most compact and the lower center of gravity. Either way, Toyota paid much attention to the behavior and thus put all mechanical items as low as possible (the Boxer engine helps!) And created a distribution of weights of 53/47 between the front and rear. Regarding suspension, McPherson front and a scheme overlaid serve the purpose of giving a good performance, helped by 17-inch wheels of origin.

The GT-86 will go on sale in European markets from the summer of next year.
