The Toyota GT86 is a car straight out of a comic book, with its Japanese drifting ethos thanks to the roadster styling and it’s rear wheel drive set-up. In these modern times where carmaker’s increasingly make cars with either all-wheel drive or front wheel drive to save us from ourselves, the GT86 is here to prove you can still have fun with a rear wheel drive setup and live to tell the tale.
In honour of the drifting ability of the GT86 Toyota UK made the great choice of combining the car with Japan’s best known drifting adventure animated show ‘Initial D’.
Essentially what Toyota UK have done here is merge the GT86 with the Initial D backdrop seamlessly, the GT86 featured has a few cosmetic mods including the fantastic old-school Watanabe wheels, added carbon parts and yellow fog lamps to make the car look every inch the Tokyo mountain drifter.
Its easy to imagine yourself in this GT86 descending a Japanese mountain fully sideways with the boxer engine bouncing off the rev-limiter, fully sideways while the rear tyres cry in pain.
Now Toyota can we please get this set-up as an option on the GT86…….
