New Toyota GT86 Cup Edition gets Racing Stripes, Alcantara Interior and a VIP Ticket to the 'Ring

Even though the bad weather conditions and the snow on certain parts of the Nürburgring circuit led to the cancelation of the of the season opener of the VLN Endurance Championship on March 23, Toyota is celebrating its participation at the event with the release of the limited run GT86 Cup Edition.

Available from April at a premium of €2,860 (equal to US$3,700), only 86 numbered examples of the special edition coupe will be built and sold in Germany. The GT86 Cup Edition comes with a host of exclusive interior and exterior features as well as a ticket to a VIP customer event for two at the Nürburgring.

So, what makes the GT86 Cup Edition special? Well, with the exception of the 18-inch OZ Ultraleggera racing alloy wheels wrapped around in high performance Pirelli P Zero Nero GT tires size 225/40 R18, it’s all about the looks.

On the outside, it’s offered in a choice of three exterior shades named “Dynamic White Pearl”, “Furious Black Mica” and “Racing Red”, while also gaining a boot lid spoiler and racing stripes.

Inside, Toyota dressed the interior in Alcantara, including the steering wheel rim, upper sections of the door, seats and the dashboard, while parts of the lower console, gearbox lever and the handbrake lever are trimmed in black leather with red accent stitching. The final touch comes from a brushed aluminum badge with the car’s serial number.
