Toyota to Release 86 Hakone Edition
April 30, 2019
Toyota is in the midst of an exciting year with a major overhaul to the Corolla, the reveal of the new Highlander at NYIAS and of course the return of the Supra. Now the Japanese brand has announced the 86 Hakone Edition.
The limited edition coupe pays homage to The Hakone Turnpike, which is a privately owned road a few hours outside of Tokyo that has been referred to as “Japan’s Nurburgring.” Each example sports Hokone green paint, 17” twisted spoke bronze wheels and a black spoiler while the interior features a tan and black color scheme with Alcantara seats. Buyers will also receive a pair of tan key gloves and folio cover with the 86 logo.
Beneath all the special colors and fabrics is an 86 in GT trim, available with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. The 2.0L H4 boxer engine sees no performance enhancements, still putting out 205 horsepower in the manual compared to 200 HP in the automatic — as if you needed another reason to save the manuals!
The Toyota 86 Hakone Edition goes on sale this Fall for the 2020 model year, but there is no word on pricing at the time of this writing.
