Toyota Gazoo Racing in collaboration with Subaru finally introduced the New Toyota GR 86 for the first time to the public.
The legendary model has dimensions of length 4,265 mm, width, 1,775 mm, and height of 1,310 mm with a wheelbase of 2,575 mm.
On the exterior, the GR 86 maintains its distinctive design as a muscular vehicle with rear-wheel drive. This can be seen from the slightly protruding fenders on both the front and rear wheels.
The horizontal underbody and the narrow rear of the cab combine to create the appearance of a wide low center of gravity. The front of the vehicle is equipped with a GR-specific Functional MATRIX Grille, which combines performance and emotion.
In terms of aerodynamics, Toyota engineers seem to maximize airflow from the front to the rear to strengthen downforce and make it easier to control.
The new Toyota GR 86 carries a new engine with a capacity of 2,387 cc with a power of 235 PS at 7,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 250 Nm at 3,700 rpm. As a result, engine performance increases with an acceleration of 0-100 km / h in just 6.3 seconds.
The power is channeled to the rear-drive wheels via a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Over on the legs, it is supported by tires with a size of 215/40 R18.
The new GR 86 is sharing Subaru’s EyeSight technology, also known as Driver Assist Technology. It is a comprehensive safety technology system that provides safety support during everyday driving.
These include pre-collision safety technology that helps avoid or reduce the impact of a collision, and emergency rescue assistance, and secondary collision avoidance support in the event of an accident.

The new Toyota GR 86 is the third model of Toyota sports car with the GR label developed by Toyota Gazoo Racing. The car is going to be available in Japan in the fall of 2021.
