In 2012, the Toyota GT86 (now known as the GR86) and the Subaru BRZ were launched. 10 years ago. That’s why the two Japanese manufacturers are celebrating their connection with the 10th…anniversary of Limited. In Japan. The cheap sports cars with rear-wheel drive have now passed into the second generation and are offered in this special version with a manual or an automatic gearbox.
The GR86 in the JDM version 10thAnniversary Limited is painted Flame Orange as a nod to the original. The Japanese 2+2 coupe comes with a commemorative logo on the rear window, which was also placed on the top of the door cards. The interior is orange to match the body, as is the interior stitching.
Of course, the Subaru BRZ gets practically the same cosmetic upgrades inside and out. The main difference, however, is the use of the traditional Subaru color “WR Blue Pearl”. Both vehicles feature black side mirror caps, and in the case of the BRZ, the badge on the tailgate is also dark.
There are no changes under the hood. The affordable sports car duo is still powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine that delivers 235 hp and 250 Newton meters of torque. Power is sent to the rear axle via a six-speed manual or an automatic transmission with the same number of gears.
Both Toyota and Subaru are taking orders through September 30, with Subaru specifically stating that no more than 200 examples will be sold on a “first come, first served” basis. The GR86 costs with the do-it-yourself transmission 3,469,000 yen (approx. 25,000 euros according to the current exchange rate) and with the automatic transmission 3,632,000 yen (approx. 26,000 euros), while the GT is slightly cheaper than the Toyota at 3,388,000 yen and 3,553,000 yen respectively.
