Billed as a sports car for daily driving, the 86 GR Sport has been equipped with a front splitter, aerodynamic side skirts and 17-inch aluminum wheels with a black finish. The latter are backed up by a Brembo braking system with red calipers. Only three different exterior colors are available and they include Crystal Black Silica, Crystal White Pearl and the Pure Red seen in the photos.
Interior changes are limited but designers installed a smaller diameter steering wheel which is wrapped in leather and features silver contrast stitching as well as a GR logo. GR badging also appears on the start/stop button as well as on the instrument cluster.
On the performance front, there isn’t much to report as the only change appears to be the addition of a rear brace that promises to increase rigidity. As a result, the car features a familiar 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 207 PS (152 kW / 204 hp) and 212 Nm (156 lb-ft) of torque. It can be paired to either a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic transmission.
The Toyota 86 GR Sport is currently on sale in Japan and pricing starts at ¥3,780,000 ($34,140).
Besides introducing the 86 GR Sport, Toyota announced a handful of GR Parts. Many of the components are shared with the aforementioned model and they include front splitters, a rear spoiler and two sets of wheels. Customers can also order braces for the steering rack and rear suspension member as well as the smaller diameter steering wheel.
One of the more interesting options is a limited edition infotainment system with GPS navigation. The system features a 7-inch display, a “racing recorder” and an assortment of performance-oriented displays.
