We love the Toyota GT 86 – and the of an even more sporty is a tantalising one. The range of TRD is well chosen and really to the appeal of this back-to-basics coupe. However, we’d Toyota to try to keep a lid on the cost of extras – specify the whole lot and you be faced with a big bill for cosmetic changes.

It’s one of our sports cars of 2012 so but even we think Toyota’s GT 86 do with some extra And that’s just what version brings.

The GT 86 TRD is the work of the Toyota Racing performance division, and gets a host of upgrades designed to up the excitement.

They also the price. Add all the performance parts car has and you’d be looking at a bill of £40,000. Given that the model carries a £24,995 tag, is the TRD worth the huge extra?

Well, you certainly get looks. TRD has developed its own aggressive which comprises a lower spoiler, side skirts, a rear spoiler and rear along with racy new alloy wheels, painted These are wrapped in 225/40-section which are larger and wider the standard model’s 215/45-section

The braking modifications will excite driving enthusiasts, as include huge six-piston and four-piston rear calipers, all in a shade of red, while the is upgraded with four-way dampers.

Inside are new sports and a raft of TRD badges for the push-button and gearlever. The one area that’s relatively untouched is the engine, as the additions to boost our test performance were a new exhaust – just check out those quad pipes at the rear – and a TRD air

Toyota couldn’t confirm these tweaks boosted by much, although such a usually adds about which would take from 197bhp to around

With the added weight of the new and larger wheels, we’d any improvement in straight-line speed to be anyway, leaving the 0-62mph at around 7.6 seconds.

On the move, the GT 86 TRD have the low-rev punch of a hot hatch like the new 247bhp Focus ST; instead it thrives on The slick six-speed manual makes it easy to keep the on the boil, though, while the new system adds a sportier

Our brief test took at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and we feel the suspension changes on our run up the hill. We could carry of speed through the tight, corners and the GT 86 was even more than the standard car.

Is all worth £40,000, though? have to be a dedicated enthusiast to so, particularly when you could a Porsche Boxster for about In fairness, Toyota is still on how to offer the TRD package to customers, and it likely that buyers be able to pick and choose a wide range of parts. So you just add the wheels (£850 at the moment!), or the upgraded brakes or a spoiler. Or dig deep and have the lot.

We think Toyota needs to the GT 86 far more performance to justify a increase to the price tag, it’s possible more tuning could be available by the the TRD parts hit dealers in January.

happens, having a great of tuning options certainly the appeal of one of our favourite coupes.
