Toyota is still churning out special-edition 86s as though its life depends on it. This is the latest—a black-and-gold-themed 86 called the Black Limited, of which it will sell precisely 86 cars in its native Japan.
Inspired by the Black Limited AE86 Sprinter Trueno of the late ’80s (see below), this 86 gets metallic black bodywork, gold 17-inch wheels, and a little spoiler. Inside, it’s all leather and alcantara, with a smattering of Black Limited badges so you don’t forget what car it is you’re driving.
Mechanically there are a couple of changes in the form of Brembo brakes with red-painted calipers (not gold, oddly enough) and Sachs dampers. Power comes from the same naturally aspirated 2.0-liter flat-four delivering 204hp and 209Nm.
Only 43 of the 86 cars will be fitted with the six-speed manual, while the others will the six-speed auto.
Sure it’s nice, but our heart belongs to last year’s British Racing Green Limited...
