Toyota 86 Yellow Limited debuts – Japan-only special

Toyota 86_Yellow_Limited_10

Toyota has just released an exclusive Japan-only Yellow Limited version of the Toyota 86, and as you’ve guessed, it’s as bright as a sunflower on a summer morning. This latest version Hachi Roku has received mostly visual enhancements and slight handling improvements.

Externally, the refreshed 86 is painted in a radiant Sunrise Yellow colour scheme. The two-door now gets a custom front insert, side skirts and a high rear spoiler attached its boot. Inside, drivers will get a black interior with Alcantara leather and yellow contrast stitching.

To improve its handling, the 86 Yellow Limited wears matte-black, 18-inch forged aluminium rims from BBS, wrapped around Bridgestone Potenza S001 high-performance tyres. In addition, it sits low on Sachs shock absorbers for enhanced handling.

As mentioned earlier, the 86 receives only visual enhancements and aerodynamic tweaks, which means that the engine is untouched. It’s still the same naturally-aspirated 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine that makes 200 hp and 205 Nm of torque, paired to a six-speed manual transmission.

    Why Toyota/Subaru reluctant to install turbo in it? Why?

        86 is designed for further mod, not like your Waja, Iswara, Satria.

    • Lamborghini, Power of N.A.
      Pure feeling.

      despite good chasis and superb tuning for handling, N.A engine is what made Toyota 86 able to drift and drift non-stop, in control.

    These kind of cars are cheap sports cars in overseas.
    But in Malaysia, it is more expensive than a house.
    Most people are only stuck with cheap cars due to ridiculous car tax on Malaysian cars.
    Cars easily become second biggest investment in life, taking up to 9 years to pay off.

    • In any country cars are always the 2nd most expensive asset (its not an investment if it keeps depreciating, you know). Nowadays sports cars are a rare breed. So these kinda cars are NOT cheap anywhere, as compared to the golden age 80’s to 2000.

      If you need a 9 year loan to service, I would say the blame is on the buyer. He could have chosen a more sensible affordable car instead of keeping with the Kardashians.

        You did not catch my meaning.
        Cars are supposed to be cheap everyday use, so it is supposed to be cheap.
        But in Malaysia, you need to take 7-9 years loan to buy a car, and a Myvi at that.
        Today CEO of Perodua mentioned most of the people can’t even cough out RM3300 downpayment for a Axia.
        The ‘investment’ that I mention here is NOT ‘investment’ it is a burden.

          Bro. Your story is an old story in Paultan.
          We always migrate to other country to buy cheap car.
