Subaru and Toyota know what you're planning for your new 86 or BRZ: drop the stock wheels in favour of something lighter and bigger, swap the bumpers out for a track-focused option, tear out the insides and get racing.

For Japanese buyers, that mission is now a little easier, with new Purist versions arriving with a lower price - and a lot less kit.

The exterior differences are clear: steel wheels will get the car from your house to the workshop, and in the case of the Toyota 86, there's unpainted bumpers, mirror caps and door handles. Likewise, there are no fog lights and no rear spoiler.

The brakes are all a basic 380mm disc package - still ventilated at the front, but solid at the rear - and the torsen diff has also been tossed to save weight.

Inside, you'll find these items missing: air conditioning (and its compressor), audio system and speakers, the knobs from the hand brake and gear shifter, the stainless-steel door sill plates, door lamps, floor mats, door lamps... and the leather from the steering wheel.

All of this makes the car 40kg lighter, but how much lighter the Purist will be on the hip pocket (or if it will even be an option in Australia) is unclear.
