Toyota FT86 (AE86 Trueno inspired)

It is speculated that the vehicle will boast a "2.0-liter flat-four producing 197 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 150 pound-feet of torque at 6,600 rpm" (Source: FT86Club)

Classic Toyota Trueno AE86; rear wheel drive, light curb weight, and 2 doors for great fun!

The main attraction of the vehicle will not be the power, but the handling; "power is nothing without control". Trust me on this, I have a 255bhp Toyota Altis no a 1.2xx kg chassis (roughly 2400 pounds) that can do 0-100km (0-62mph) in roughly 6 seconds, but the handling is terrible. I enjoy tackling the corners over blazing fast acceleration.

The FT86 will come in 2 trims, with the higher spec variant equipped with LSD in both automatic and manual, leather

 wrapped steering wheel, better sound system, cosmetic changes like sport pedal and gauges, and 17" rims,

while LSD will be available for the manual only for the lower spec and comes with 16" rims.
