Toyota has recently released a teaser shot of it’s new spiritual successor for the AE86, the FT-86 II which is due to be debuted at the Geneva Motorshow on the 3rd of March. This car will be an evolution of the original FT-86 concept which has been doing the rounds for the past couple of years and will hopefully be closer to a production ready car.
Rumour’s are that it will feature a 2.0 n/a Subaru Boxer engine (boo!) and a RWD layout (win!) … If they can recapture any of the magic that made the AE86 so special then they are onto a winner. By the looks of things all will be revealed soon…..
They say that good things come to those that wait and that certainly proved to be the case with AE86irl’s one and only meet of 2010. After trying to secure various venues and several false starts things weren’t looking good. But our determination paid off and with our newly appointed events team we managed to secure a date at a spot that is nothing short of a mecca for twincam owners! Just look at it …..

For Irish AE86 fans It’s hard to imagine a better scene than standing at the pit wall in Mondello Park watching a mix of our island’s finest hachi’s flat out to the backdrop of screaming 4age’s all in different states of tune. To put it quite simply it was a bit special….
The day was organised by AE86irl’s very own Nikki ‘resident waffler’ roku and the majority of the machinery out on track belonged to site members with only the odd inferior manufacturer car spoiling the harmony!
To cap things off the weather took a break from it’s usual pissy wet October self and the sun came out setting the scene for some 86 mayhem ! Continue reading →
