    The wait is finally over now that Toyota just officially launched its new and much anticipated Toyota 86 sports coupe in Malaysia! The launch of this automotive legend at the Sepang International Circuit was accompanied by the launch of another Toyota icon, the new Toyota Camry.

    Also making a special appearance during this historical launch were the chief engineers for both of the vehicles themselves, Mr. Tetsuya Tada for the Toyota 86, and Mr. Michihiko Sato for the Toyota Camry. After a short presentation from both of the chief engineers about the updated versions of Toyota’s icons, the unveiling of the 86 and Camry took place down at the pits.

    Lining up the previous versions, the old 86 and Camry slowly drove in into the curtained pits,...

    ...and came out transformed into their modern incarnations. The star of the show was undoubtedly the new Toyota 86, which incorporates the soul of the iconic AE86 in its blood. Born and designed as a true sports car, it has an FR layout with a 2.0 litre boxer engine to provide a low centre of gravity in the search for better stability.

    “The Toyota 86 was not designed to compete in the muscle car wars or serve as a computer-controlled monster machine which is typical of many of today’s sports cars. Instead it was designed to place the driver in control and developed on the same ‘fun-to-drive’ approach that was taken in the original Toyota AE86, Toyota Sports 800 and Toyota 2000GT”, said the President of UMW Toyota Motor, Mr. Ismet Suki.

    A special TRD-tuned version of the 86 also made an appearance, and it sure received quite an extensive range of treatments from the Toyota-specialist tuners. A quick glance throughout the car showed changes everywhere; the exterior, interior, and even more in the engine bay.

    While the TRD version of the Toyota 86 is not scheduled for release in Malaysia for the time being, let’s focus on the 86 first.

    Priced at RM 243,000 for manual and 249,000 for automatic, the 86 comes with six colour options – Satin White Pearl, Crystal Black Silica, Sterling Silver Metallic, Lightning Red, Galaxy Blue Silica and Orange Metallic.

    A question,

    The autobox is an actual autobox or is it a dual clutch thingy?

    Does it have the flappy paddles like the ones we see in car reviews by foreign mags?

    It's under AUD35k in Australia, totally overpriced in Malaysia.

    Temujin,
    It's a 6 speed auto box that's likely to be pinched from the Toyota Mark X.

    for an auto box it's pretty sweet for a day to day commuter and when mucking around during the weekend.
    The paddle shift feels pretty solid in terms of engagement feel and design ergonomics (if only there's a proper DSG/ PDK) kind of gearbox option.
    Response from the autbox is not too bad as it does seem to hold in gear if u plan to bounce it on the rev limiter in sports mode and it does down shift when manually prompted when your rpm range is higher than normal compared to other auto box.

    However it probably can't compare to the manual simply down to its ratio and the auto will be always an auto, there's bound to be some slip due to the nature of an auto box.

    Overall sweet car. Just needs more freaking power for such a well honed chassis.

    Nice sports ride but should have at least had a Toyota engine...maybe something like the 1/2 JZ or even 3SGTE....but bear in mind that the weight is very low so...

    1JZ,2JZ 3SGTE.
    How to compare to this new boxer.
    The above Toyota engines are so many generations old compared to the new boxer engine.
    Especially in terms of emmissions it would likely fail in todays world.
    Even then those engines are gonna have a tough time being fitted into the tight engine bay of this car.
    And even if they wanted to fit the above engines it would definitely affect the handling balance of the car.

    However the Lexus ISF engine in this car would be nice hehe.

    at least toyota had a hand in developing the engine la hehe

    and the balance / handling of the ft86 is only possible with a boxer engine, which allows for a super low centre of gravity, lower than most sportcars
