The 2013 Toyota GT 86 Cup Edition is this year's safety car for the VLN Endurance Racing Championship.

Toyota unveiled this special edition in March when they announced only 86 cars will be produced and all of them are going to be sold in Germany. It sits on 18-inch OZ Ultraleggera wheels with Pirelli P Zero Corsa GT rubbers measuring 225/40 R18.

Priced at 2,860 EUR more than the stock model, the limited-run variant also comes with Racing Red, Dynamic White Pearl and Furious Black Mica colors on the hood, roof, trunk lid and exterior mirrors. The A-pillar, rear diffuser and front spoiler have received corresponding color accents.

For the pace car, Toyota Racing Development (TRD) upgraded the GT 86 Cup Edition with quad exhaust pipes, rear diffuser, side skirts, front/rear aprons, larger rear spoiler, along with a carbon fiber strut bar. It also has a stabilizer set and TRD's foil wrap for the exterior. Toyota says all these goodies can be ordered for the standard GT 86 as well.
