If there was a way to properly comprehend the custom work done on this Toyota GT 86, we don’t get it. We suppose Toyota’s Original Accessory division had an idea what it wanted to build to display at the Tokyo Auto Salon, but this custom-tuned GT 86, dubbed the 86xStyle Cb, is something that leaves us more confused than anything.

The rationale behind this project appears to be the collaboration of classic and modern design elements for the GT 86. The new snout on the car completely changes the GT 86’s look, ridding the front of all the aggressive styling elements that make it popular. To be fair, the rear end of the car looks pretty good, thanks in large part to the addition of new taillights, a duck-bill spoiler and a modified bumper housing with new exhaust pipe outlets.

Rounding out the exterior modifications is a set of 18-inch BBS wheels wrapped in 215/45 and 225/45 tires on the front and rear, respectively. Also added in is a performance brake system upgrades courtesy of Brembo.

There are not many interior mods done on the 86xStyle Cb, apart from dressing it up in dark-brown leather and the installation of illumination on the dashboard.

All in all, this custom tuned GT 86 is something that doesn’t really move our awesome meter. The front end looks like it was transported back from the past to combine with a more modern rear. As far as we’re concerned, somewhere along the line, that transformation hit some bumps.
