Toyota is introducing a new upgrade kit for its popular 86 sports car which is essentially the same parts used on the limited edition model. The new package is now available for any 86 customers and consists of three elements: larger Brembo brakes, Sachs dampers and anthracite-coloured 10-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels.
"We've chosen two renowned performance suppliers - brands that are used in Formula 1 - to expand the 86 coupe's credentials as a true driver's car," said Tony Cramb, Toyota Australia’s director of sales and marketing.
"These performance components will add to driver involvement and enjoyment, whether it is on the road or the track.”
Despite the use of quality parts, the kit is surprisingly affordable, costing an additional $2200 for the GTS model and $2900 for the GT, to account for the extra alloy wheel size.
The upgrade arrives at the same time Toyota introduces another minor update for the coupe. Both the GT and GTS get a new infotainment system, while lower trim grades also gets navigation for the first time.
The latest update increases prices for the two models with the GT up $650 to $31,440 (plus on-road costs) and the GTS from $36,640, an extra $150.
