Toyota has revealed a slightly updated GT 86 in Europe, featuring improved handling and rigidity.
While the changes are relatively limited, Toyota GT 86 chief engineer Tetsuya Tada said, “there is no reason that development should stop, only because the vehicle has gone on sale. [The] GT86 is all about driver involvement, and we are committed to keep enhancing this aspect of the car. The 2015 model year delivers the latest status of GT86’s continuous evolution.”
The minor upgrade includes a more rigid fixation of the front suspension and the rear shock absorbers to provide a more stable damping and improved friction control. Body-roll is also further reduced, and the steering feel is even crisper than before.
Apart from that, the updated GT 86 also benefits from a new carbon-fibre motif dashboard insert, for a more premium appearance.
On the exterior, a shark-fin antenna has been adopted to improve both looks and aerodynamics. A new pearl-white and a new silver paint finish complete the update.
