About Toyota GR86

“GR86” is not just a model identifier but a representation of the car’s essence. The “G” refers to Gazoo Racing, Toyota’s racing development team, while “R” represents ‘Racing’. The “86” pays homage to the AE86, a series of sport compact cars produced by Toyota in the mid-80s, renowned for their balance of power and handling.

The GR86 carries forward this legacy, blending innovative technology with classic design elements to create a vehicle that embodies the past, present, and future of Toyota’s racing heritage.

Refining the finish on the new aftermarket hood and fender flares

The finish sure it’s disappointed but that’s typical from bodyshop. The following images will demonstrate our expertise in Paint Correction methods and their effectiveness. To provide context, paint correction procedures on these panels usually require two to five times the effort compared to standard paint correction processes. It would be unrealistic to anticipate that these areas would be addressed and yield similar results through standard paint correction services.

Cusco suspension Parts installed on this Toyota GR86

Once we elevate the vehicle using the lift, it becomes clear that this is not your typical car modification routine. The distinct Cusco blue, mirroring the exterior Neptune blue remarkably, seems as if it was originally designed to be a part of this vehicle straight off the assembly line.

Carzwerk Story

What’s the update from Toyota 86 to GR86?

Last generation Toyota 86 to a GR86 involves more than just a simple badge swap. The GR86 is a newer model with notable improvements and enhancements over the Toyota 86. While both cars share the same FT86 platform, the GR86 offers more power, a revamped interior, and updated styling. Features such as a rear spoiler, push-start ignition, and improved suspension could be added to a Toyota 86 as modifications, but these changes do not equate to a full upgrade to a GR86.
