Toyota's new SportCar GT86 revealed in Europe

The Toyota/Subaru joint rear-drive sport coupe is finally becoming a reality after years of teasing and tantalizing development that has seen three separately badged concept and near-production cars — the FT-86, Scion FR-S, and Subaru BRZ — revealed, driven and otherwise paraded around in one form or another over the past six months. Now, we have yet another moniker, the GT 86, which is what the car will officially be called in Europe.

The main features of this Sports Beauty are :

2.0-liter boxer with D4-S injection (direct and port injected)
197 hp @ 7,000 rpm and 151 lb-ft (205 Nm) @6,600 rpm
6-speed manual or automatic transmissions
17-inch wheel/tire package standard
4,240mm (167 in.) long, 1285mm (50.6 in.) high, 2,570mm (101 in.) wide
53:47 front-to-rear weight distribution
475mm (18.7 in.) center of gravity
