Article by Christian Andrei, on April 2, 2012

The order books for the Toyota GT86 – the much awaited front-engined, rear-drive coupé – have been opened. The pricing information and the equipments specs have also been announced. There will be two versions available for the Toyota GT86: a six-speed manual that’s priced at £24,995 and a six-speed automatic that’s priced at £26,495.

During the launch, only one equipment grade will be offered. It comes with a limited-slip differential, dual-zone climate control, sports seats, bi-xenon headlights and 17-inch alloys. The exterior features include a rear spoiler, 17-inch light alloys, chrome-finished dual exhaust tailpipes and a ‘T’-mesh grille. This T motif is duplicated in the form of the rear foglight, with a central location between the tailpipes.

The interior gets a smart entry system, dual-zone aircon, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, cruise control, hill-start assist, scuff plates and touchscreen control system to control the six-speaker audio system, with Bluetooth for phone connection and music streaming, and a USB port.

The GT86 is equipped with a stability control system that may be adjusted with three driving modes. Paddle shifts are used on the six-speed automatic transmission so that the driver can choose to make manual gear changes.

Toyota offers seven exterior colors, including: dark red, silver metallic, black metallic, blue metallic, dark red metallic, orange metallic and pearl pearlescent. Offered as an option are the side, roof and bonnet decals that come in black or silver. Black cloth upholstery is available as standard.

Among the options are: black leather and Alcantara upholstery with heated front seats with a price tag of £1600; black leather and red Alcantara upholstery with red leather styling details and heated front seats with price tag of £1600; Toyota Touch and Go system £750; side decals £180; roof and bonnet decals priced at £200; side, roof and bonnet decals at £380. Deliveries are slated to begin on July 1.
