A new limited edition Toyota 86 spec dubbed ‘British Green Limited’ has just been announced. If you’re digging it from the pictures, we’ll just stop you here right now and tell you that’s it’s a Japan-only affar.
Now, if you live in Japan, Toyota will be accepting orders through May 31, with first deliveries expected to arrive in the end of July.
As for pricing, it’s been set at ¥3,251,880 (roughly $29,400) for the 6-speed manual version, whereas the 6-speed automatic will cost you slightly more at ¥3,318,840 ($30,031).
More than just green
The exterior of the car features not just the British Green Limited colorway, but also the High Performance Package, which adds Brembo brakes, SACHS dampers, exclusive 17-inch bronze alloys and a not very subtle rear spoiler. Inside, there are two-tone leather seats (with Alcantara support pads), orange contrast stitching on the steering wheel, shifter, handbrake and dashboard, plus no display for the infotainment system for a more driver-focused environment, we assume.
Meanwhile, power will continue to come from the same 2.0-liter petrol unit as before, rated at 205 HP (208 PS) and 156 lb-ft (211 Nm) of torque. While straight line performance will mirror that of any regular 86 model, this limited edition spec might be a little more fun to drive seen as how it features improved stopping power.
Altogether, this spec kind of reminds us of the limited edition 2019 Toyota 86 TRD from last year, minus the more aggressive body kit – that one had new bumpers, side skirts, new rear diffuser and a different trunk lid spoiler.
