In the snug racing to my left my friend Jason is from ear to ear as we whiz along country lanes. He’s a car nut, has escaped the rat race to out in the Home Counties (where are plenty of tight corners and lanes to thrash his old BMW along) and watches Top Gear religiously. promised to give him a spin in the new GT86, the latest rear-wheel-drive to hit the market, and he’s clearly himself as I drone on about its naturally aspirated engine and low of gravity.

There’s been a lot of buzz the new coupe and savvy petrol like Jason are already a queue outside Toyota for the first proper sports car the has produced since the days of the Supra and mid-engined MR2. a four-seat coupe in the classic (engine at the front, drive at the rear) and it’s just

Toyota GT 86

The engine’s start-up note particularly brutish and its looks, certainly pretty, are hardly stopping, but it is on the road where its becomes clear. Hit a corner and the nose comes round without much in the way of body and if you dare push down right foot, you’ll be with a beautiful flick of the It doesn’t have buckets of – its engine is just shy of 200bhp and need to keep it above to get the best of the engine – but there’s to having fun than mere

Don’t get me wrong, the GT86 is enough, but its development team to create a car for those who are bored cars that are too powerful, too much grip, cost too and don’t let the driver have any And the Japanese boffins certainly got it Take the GT86 for a Saturday-morning as Jason and I did and you’ll be able to it further than any supercar you afford.

There are plenty of performance out there; Aston Martin, for has just announced the all-new which has set the motoring pulses in the last few weeks. It is powered by a 6.0-litre V12 engine and will hit in just 4.1 seconds before out at 183mph. I’m sure it be fantastic and grace the bedroom of many young boys, but you need to be a millionaire with a or access to wide, open of southern Europe to justify one.

Whereas the GT86 costs under £25k and is made by so will be fairly inexpensive to At the same time, it rewards skill behind the wheel and when throwing it at corners and the rear end to follow. It is a car for people who driving.

Jason got married year and has just bought a little cottage so it’s not the practical of cars for him – the rear are nothing more than a joke. They suggest you be able to fit someone in there but come away with strain and a bad back if you actually try to yourself (there’s certainly no for a child seat). He’d do with something like a Focus ST or Vauxhall Astra VXR hot Both are just as fun and very but boast such luxuries as rear seats and a decent-sized for practical things like the shop, DIY supplies and a buggy.

I can tell he’d rather the GT86, though, and so would I.
