The concept becomes reality.
Since Toyota designed the legendary 2000 GT over 40 years ago, we have created many exciting sports cars and enjoyed considerable motor racing success with them.
Now our FT-86 II Concept - the latest in the sports tradition set by the legendary AE 86 - is no longer a concept. It's a reality.
The car that got the press buzzing
Introducing the production version, the car that's got Top Gear 'very excited' and the rest of the world's automotive press buzzing. Here in Australia, it's called the Toyota 86. In Europe, it's called the GT 86 and in the USA, it's the SCION FR-S.
The world's first horizontally opposed D-4S engine
The 86 is a rear wheel drive sports car powered by the world's first horizontally opposed D-4S engine. This combines 'boxer' engine technology (first seen in Toyota's Publica Sports in 1962) with our cutting edge D-4S direct and port injection technology.
The 2.0 litre, normally aspirated D-4S engine has separate twin injectors for both direct and port injection and a high compression ratio of 12.5:1. It delivers 147kW of power and generates plenty of torque over a wide range of engine speeds.
A combination of lightweight body and superb aerodynamics ensures that every ounce of power is put to very good use.
The 86 is available with a six-speed manual transmission or an advanced sports shift six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. It's equipped with a specially designed sports steering wheel, sports seats and sports pedals.
