Got RM243,000 for a car? Well, that’s the indicative on-the-road price UMW Toyota Motor has set for the Toyota 86, twin to the Subaru BRZ, which we recently sampled. For an automatic transmission, you have to fork out an extra RM6,000, for a grand total of RM249,000. Yes, from what I can gather in the press release, the ‘GT’ is missing from the name.
Six colours will be available at launch – Satin White Pearl (RM800 premium), Crystal Black Silica, Sterling Silver Black, Lightning Red, Galaxy Blue Silica and Orange Metallic. No other official information on the specs of the car has been announced as yet.
No official launch date has been fixed yet either. But if you want to be the first to own one, Toyota has started taking orders.
