Toyota slashes iconic 86 prices
Article by Rebeccah Elley
Toyota has announced price cuts on its top-selling 86 sports car this week, with $300 slashed off the price of the GT auto, $500 off the GTS manual and $800 of the GTS auto. The price for the entry level 86 also remains unchanged since the sports car was launched over two years ago at a competitive $29,990.
The GT manual now receives a 6.1-inch touch-screen reversing camera and touch-screen display audio system, worth at least $1,000 at no extra cost.
In a statement Toyota described the 86 as “Australia's best-selling sports car for the past two years with local sales topping 13,000 cars since June 2012 - the third-highest total in the world.”
“The dynamic abilities and fun-to-drive characteristics of the 86 provide a credible platform for motorsport, leading Toyota to announce recently the 86 will form the basis of a one-make race series.”
This will be dubbed the Toyota 86 Pro-Am to be raced exclusively at V8 Supercars events from next year.
The Toyota 86 is covered by Toyota Service Advantage with a capped price of $190 for each of up to four scheduled services in the first three years or 60,000km.
