The wait is over: Toyota releases more GR86 coupes for UK customers

8 June 2023

Just one year ago, the Toyota GR86 was an instant sales sensation, accelerating from nought to sell-out success in less than two hours. Since then, a packed waiting list of potential customers has been eager for news of more cars coming to the UK. Now the wait is over.

Today Toyota can confirm that additional coupes are on their way, giving more people the chance to enjoy the special qualities of a model that’s been the toast of media experts and motoring fans alike.

In the spirit of fairness, Toyota is continuing with an online purchasing process designed to ensure that those who signed up for the waiting list, in chronological order, have the first chance to buy. Anticipating the new allocation will be another sell-out, Toyota will continue to operate a waiting list for potential customers, should further cars become available.

GR86’s appeal is founded on a classic approach to sports car engineering and handling and performance that benefit from the special “taste” of Gazoo Racing – Toyota’s world championship-winning competition arm. Building on the success of the previous GT86 coupe, GR86 has the same front engine/rear-wheel drive set-up and a lightweight, balanced chassis, together with a more powerful naturally aspirated engine.

Its launch completed a “power of three” line-up of GR-branded models, alongside GR Yaris – a car bred from Toyota Gazoo Racing’s title-winning World Rally Championship operation – and the GR Supra coupe.

GR86’s special qualities have earned it leading press honours. Most recently it was named a “future classic” in the Autocar Awards, while Top Gear magazine acclaimed it as its Sports Car of the Year.
