Until Toyota finally decides to offer a more powerful version of its GT86 sports car , the company is teasing us with all kinds of special editions. It’s latest carrot-dangling act, the GT 86 Cup Edition, made its debut today and is touted as a model built to celebrate Toyota’s participation at the VLN Endurance Championship on March 23rd.
The model adds numerous exterior and interior features, which seems par for the course when it comes to these special-edition GT86s. But on top of all the aesthetic goodies, each customer will also get a ticket for a VIP customer event for two at the Nürburgring. Pretty enticing deal, if you ask us.
On the exterior, the new GT86 Cup Edition will offer three special colors: "Dynamic White Pearl", "Furious Black Mica" and "Racing Red", all three of which have been combined with racing stripes and a boot-lid spoiler. Meanwhile, the interior gets a plush Alcantara trim on the steering wheel rim, upper sections of the door, seats and the dashboard, driving up the sports coupe’s luxury appeal. Each unit will also get a brushed aluminum badge showing the car’s serial number. Last but not least, the model will carry a set of 18-inch OZ Ultraleggera racing alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Nero GT tires.
The new GT86 Cup Edition will be limited to only 86 units and will add another €2,860 over the car’s standard price (about $3,700 at the current exchange rates).
