Red Hot and Blue: Toyota Introduces the New GT86 Club Series Blue Edition

31 May 2018

The Club Series versions of the Toyota GT86 focus on the coupe’s style and performance appeal as a car that’s all about the pure joys of driving. The latest addition to this select group is the new GT86 Blue Edition, offering an exclusive exterior paint finish and the option of a Performance Pack for even sharper handling.

The Blue Edition makes a strong street statement with its Electric Blue bodywork and contrasting black styling details, including front grille, rear spoiler and diffuser, door mirror housings and front fog light surrounds. Inside, the cabin is finished in sporting black leather and Alcantara.

The optional Performance Pack delivers a more focused drive with the introduction of a Sachs-tuned suspension upgrade, with Sachs Performance dampers, and larger Brembo brakes that give both increased stopping power and improved pedal feel. To accommodate the striking, large red Brembo calipers, new-design 17-inch black alloy wheels are fitted.

The Blue Edition benefits from the GT86’s poised and balanced chassis with low centre of gravity and low-set driving position. True to classic sportscar engineering, it has a front engine – a 197bhp 2.0-litre “boxer” four-cylinder unit – and rear-wheel drive. Customers can choose either manual or automatic transmission, both with six speeds. Top speed is 140mph (130mph auto) with nought to 62mph acceleration in 7.7 seconds (8.4 auto).

Equipment specifications match those of the GT86 PRO and include a limited-slip differential, cruise control, dusk-sensing headlights, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, LED front and rear lights and the Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system.

The GT86 Club Series Blue Edition is on sale from today (1 June). Prices are detailed below.
