Toyota is celebrating its participation in the VLN Endurance Championship in Europe with the launch of an 86-units-only GT86 Cup Edition model. The coupe is designed to mimic the look of the GT 86 CS-V3 race car built by German tuning specialist, TMG. The GT 86 Cup Edition wears 18-inch Ultraleggera wheels from OZ Racing with 225/40 Pirelli P Zero Nero GT tyres.
