Toyota has introduced the new 86 Blackline Edition in Australia.

Drawing inspiration from motorsport, the special edition has a White Liquid exterior with black stripes on the hood and roof.  The coupe has also been equipped with a TRD body kit that includes a front spoiler, revised side skirts, a three-piece rear spoiler, and a sportier rear bumper.  Buyers will also find HID headlights, LED daytime running lamps, and smart keyless entry system.

The two-tone styling theme continues in the cabin as there's black leather seats with red Alcantara inserts.  Other niceties include stainless steel door sill plates, a dual-zone climate control system, and a 6.1-inch infotainment system with GPS navigation and a standard rearview camera.

Despite the sporty styling, the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine continues to produce 197 bhp (147 kW) and 151 lb-ft (205 Nm) of torque.  It can be connected to either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic gearbox.

Production will be limited to 450 units and 250 of them will be equipped with manual transmissions.  The manual variant costs $37,990 AUD while the automatic version will retail for $40,490 AUD.
