Meet Toyota's super-limited GT86 Tiger

Article by Christian A., on March 18, 2017

Just a few days after Toyota released the 86 860 Special Edition (in the US) that didn’t quite live up to the crowd’s expectations, the company again introduced another “limited edition” car. I hope this one will be more of a crowd pleaser.

Now, let us talk about the GT86 Tiger and see what makes this one special. First off, the company mentioned that they will only be producing 30 cars in total, and will be exclusively sold in Germany. If you’re a serious car collector, you will want to get your hands on this extremely rare model. But first, let us tell you what you will be getting.

The exterior of the car can easily be spotted without a doubt. If being seen is your goal, this is for you. The car represents a fierce Bengal tiger - as it will come in a bold “Tiger Orange” paint with black stripes and some more black accents on the pillars, side mirror caps, and the rear wing, giving it a nice contrast with the bright orange base. Completing the overall look with a set of anthracite 17-inch alloy wheels, with Sachs sports dampers. The wheels are the only upgrade this limited model has over the standard one.

However, the company emphasized the dramatic upgrade in the GT86 Tiger’s interior. With an all-black interior that contradicts the striking orange exterior. There are suede leather details on the dashboard and side panels, and a combination of Alcantara and leather seats with bright orange seams. Another feature that makes it stand out from the standard model is the brushed aluminum “GT86 Tiger” badge.

Just like the standard model, the limited edition model comes with a 2.0 liter boxer four-cylinder under its hood. The GT86 Tiger will be installed with a six speed manual gearbox. And it will have heated front seats. Customers can have it upgraded with a sat-nav and rear parking sensor for an additional cost. These features are worth it, for sure.

According to Toyota, prospects must hurry as the limited edition car will only be available for a short time. Priced at about €34,990, it seems a bit too much when you compare it to the standard model which is sold at €29,990 for the entry-level model. That’s after considering there isn’t really that much difference to be honest. But then again, a model this exclusive and this dramatic will look amazing in your garage as well as represent a good investment.
