Toyota GT86 Blanco Edition (2015): range-topping model gets sporty decals

► Blanco edition tops the range at £28,500
► White paintwork with contrasting red and grey decals

Late in 2014 Toyota rejigged its list prices for the GT86 range, introducing an entry-level Primo model and pricier, more wild-looking GT86 Aero.

Now, a limited-run GT86 Blanco edition has been revealed. It will temporarily top the range at £28,500, a premium of around £1000 over the Aero.

What’s new then?

Chiefly, a set of stickers. The 2-litre boxer engine remains the same, and there are no changes to the GT86’s lively suspension setup. As the name suggests, each Blanco model will be finished in GT White Pearl (‘blanco’ is Spanish for ‘white’) with contrasting red and grey stripes running from the nose to the rear, and GT86 decals on the door sills. 

The Blanco edition will sit on 18in alloys (the same rims which feature on the Aero model, but in gloss black), finished in anthracite and embossed with the GT86 emblem. 

And the interior?

Inside, the new all-leather front sports seats will include heaters, and on the centre console, each car will feature a numbered plaque. It’s a similar deal to the GT86 Giallo edition introduced in winter 2014, which was limited to 86 units, each in yellow with black sill stripes.

Toyota says the new features will add ‘an extra dash of one-off style.’ No word on that power upgrade we’re all craving yet, though.
