Want a better braking, sharper handling 86 in a limited-edition paint color that no one can miss?
Toyota constantly keeps the 86 fresh in Japan by regularly introducing new special editions, and now the market there is getting two more. Solar Orange Limited comes in an attention-grabbing Creamsicle color, and the High Performance Package is true to its name by making sports coupe a little sharper.
The High Performance Package adds a set of Brembo brakes with red calipers and installs Sachs shocks. In addition, 17-inch wheels with thin spokes come with the parts and give the coupe a purposeful look. The performance upgrades aren’t nearly as extensive as the hardcore, lighter version that Gazoo Racing Masters of Nürburgring (GRMN) offers for the 86, but the parts should still make the 86 a little more fun around Japan’s mountain roads.
The High Performance Package will go on sale February 7. Prices with tax for it in Japan are 3,394,440 yen ($30,680) with a six-speed manual or 3,461,400 yen ($31,300) with the automatic.
In addition to its eye-popping paint color, Toyota also gives the 86 Solar Orange Limited black mirror caps on the outside. Inside, the coupes feature a nicer interior with heated seats and a mix of leather and Alcantara upholstery. Orange stitching throughout the cabin brings some of the exterior's vibrant hue into the car.
The special model will only be available to order in Japan from January 31 to March 10, 2017, so they’ll likely be a rare sight on the road. The exclusive shade and extra equipment will sell for 3,251,880 yen ($29,420) with the manual and 3,318,840 yen ($30,025) for the automatic. For an extra 243,000 yen ($2,200) with either transmission, customers will also be able to order the goodies from the High Performance Package.
