Toyota 86 – UAE Launch Video


The highly anticipated Toyota 86 has finally been launched in the UAE.

The Toyota 86 was first revealed as a concept car at the 2009 Tokyo Motor with the conceptual name Toyota FT-86.

Later, a high-performance version was launched at the Tokyo Auto Salon in 2010 as the Toyota FT-86 G Sports. At the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, a third concept car was shown, the Toyota FT-86 II.

The Subaru boxer engine sits as far back and as low as possible in the engine bay for near balanced weight distribution of 53% at the front front and 47% of the weight in the rear which aids its rear out abilities.

The low sitting engine provides excellent low center of gravity, which allows the engine to sit lower than the Nissan GTR and just 0.6 inches higher than the Lexus LFA.

To illustrate the amazing handling capabilities of this future legend Al-Futtaim Motors took the 86 to the twisty roads of Fujairah. Watch and enjoy the 86 do what it does best.

The Toyota FT-86 has still not made its official debut, but on saturday it will make its race debut in Germany. This FT-86 will run in the German VLN series on the Nürburgring. If you remember, they did the same thing with the Lexus LF-A. So its a type of tradition at Toyota/Lexus to race with prototypes.

The Toyota GT-86 is getting closer to the production ready prototypes.

Even though the car is heavily camouflaged you can still see the form of the car, which seems to be a compromise of the ft-86 Concepts.

The 200hp rear-wheel drive car will be powered by a 2.0 liter boxer engine. It will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission, and a six-speed semi-auto will be available.

Set to be unveiled at the Frankfurt IAA.
