Here is a promo video released by Toyota Europe which features the FT86 II drifting … how cool is that !! A car developed from the outset with drifting in mind … Nice one Toyota!!
Further technical details are a bit vague but we do know that it will be powered by a N/A 2.0 subaru derived boxer and it will be mated to a proper 6 speed manual gearbox with no flappy paddle crap! Toyota have also said “the mechanicals have been kept as low as possible in the car, as well as between the front and rear axles, to help maximise the car’s agility and sporty responses”
Production will start late this year – no indication of an Irish price has been released yet but we are looking at a sub £25k price for the uk market.
