Toyota 86 Features

86 Identity

86 Identity

Sports Car Pedigree

Toyota has a heritage of creating exciting sports cars beginning in 1965 with the Sports 800. The front-engine rear-wheel drive layout seen in many of our sports cars is considered the 'ideal' vehicle layout and success has endured both on the race-track and rally circuit, with the 2000GT and the AE86. The design of the latest 86 builds on our sports car heritage.

86 Identity


The 86 has a front-rear weight split of 53:47, providing the ideal balance for cornering, especially on the track, where the perfect racing-line is required. The adoption of the horizontally-opposed Boxer engine in the 86 enables an ultra-low centre of gravity. To complement this, the front seat hip point is just 400mm from the ground.

86 Identity


One of the joys of a rear-wheel drive, front-engine sports car with an ultra-low centre of gravity and a high power-to-weight ratio, is the way it handles. The low centre of gravity helps keep the car pinned to the ground and a steering rack ratio of 13.1:1 ensures a dynamic response to the lightest touch of the small diameter steering wheel.

Track-Bred Performance

Track-Bred Performance


The 86 was born and tuned on the track. Tweaking every aspect of handling at Nürburgring in Germany, honing the vital elements of acceleration, braking and cornering. Further fine-tuning occured at Fuji International Speedway, Suzuka Circuit and the Shibetsu Proving Ground in Japan.

Track-Bred Performance

Horizontally-Opposed D-4S Engine

In a world first, the 86 features a horizontally-opposed engine combined with Toyota's D-4S direct injection system. The flat shape of the 16-valve DOHC 2.0L engine means it sits low and towards the midship of the car helping with weight distribution.

Track-Bred Performance

Aerodynamic Sandwich Concept

The 86 employs a new approach to aerodynamics. Instead of just holding the car on the road with down-force, the airflow above, below and to the sides is utilised to stabilise the 86, resulting in agile handling.

Ultra-Low Centre of Gravity

For balance and handling, all of the heavier parts of the 86 are positioned as low down and close to the middle of the car as possible, enabling a very low centre of gravity.

Power-to-Weight Ratio

The lightweight body and powerful 2.0L engine optimises power-to-weight, which combined with the car's ultra-low centre of gravity, gives the 86 incredible agility.


With a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout and a six-speed gearbox, the 86 puts you in touch with the true driving experience.

86 Design

The timeless design of the 86 reflects Toyota's long sports car heritage, and includes cars like the Sports 800, the 2000GT and the AE86. The front grille features Toyota's signature T-mesh design and you'll find the distinctive 86 'horizontal piston' logo on the front fender.

86 Exoskeleton

With a light-weight frame made from extremely high grade tensile steel, reinforced front and side members, a strut tower bar and an aluminium engine under cover, the 86's body shell is extremely rigid.

Purpose Built Exterior

2+2 Sports Car

The shape and layout of the 86, combined with the positioning of heavy components towards the centre of the vehicle, has enabled Toyota to create a car with an ultra-low centre of gravity and one of the most compact and lightweight 2+2 sports cars in the world.

Steering Wheel

The 86 sports steering wheel was developed with the help of professional drivers to give the best grip possible. Its design is focused completely on driving with no clutter from steering wheel mounted controls at all. The steering rack ratio at 13:1 is similar to racing cars.
