Yesterday we told you that the highly anticipated Toyota FT-86 concept will be called the GT 86 when it debuts at the Tokyo Motor Show next week. Today we can tell you something else about the GT 86—it looks fantastic on the track.
Japanese car website lovecars.jp got their hands on the new GT 86 and took it out for some laps at the Fuji Speedway. We don't like the techno and we aren't sure what Manabu Kawaguchi's thought of the car due to an obvious language barrier, but it's great just getting a look at the GT 86 lapping the Speedway.
After what seems like an eternity of corporate press releases and glimpses at the car in disguise, seeing the car in an uncontrolled setting is amazing—even if that "uncontrolled setting" is a corporate press event. When the car finally makes it to US shores it will likely be a Scion powered by the same 2.0 liter boxer engine built by Subaru as the cars in this video.
We just can't wait to drive one.
