One of the most anticipated cars of 2012 is Toyota’s new rear wheel drive entry level sports car with way too many names: GT-86, FT-86, and FR-S. Test car specialist, Chris Harris, has traveled to Spain to get the most out of a short session with the car. This video is about 10 minutes long and shows off what one can do behind the wheel of one of the most talked about sports cars of the year.

As a reminder, the GT 86 is powered by a 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated flat-four engine that delivers a total of 200 HP at 7000 rpm and maximum torque of 151 lb-ft at 6600 rpm. The engine is mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. The only problem is that we don’t have an official confirmation of the car’s performance numbers just yet.

How lucky to be a Chris Harris? He had driven the most talked about sports car this year. This video which lasted for ten minutes was enough to show how great the Toyota GT-8. The exterior was elegant.

Chris Harris was really good on showing how great a car was. He was also lucky to have driven that kind of car. If I was given an opportunity like that, I’ll make it to the end. The Toyota GT-86 was great in exterior and output.

I’d loved to see this video many times. This new Toyota has a strong road presence and it runs swiftly. This guy is lucky enough to have a car like this.
