Eight 86 You Have To See – Tokyo Auto Salon 2016

Builds from GRMN, BP Sports, Yashio Factory, and others.

Jan 18, 2016

At first glance, it may seem like the new Miata was the darling of this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon. Not so fast; the 86 movement isn’t quite ready to leave the limelight just yet. We scoured through the 11 halls of the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan, and narrowed down eight Toyota 86 that make us want to sell our kidneys just to cop them.

GAZOO RACING MEISTER OF NURBURGRING
Even if we sold our organs we probably couldn’t afford the GRMN 86. On paper it might sound impractical to buy a $55,000 car that doesn’t even break the 300hp barrier. However, it is fitted with wind tunnel tested aero, Recaro seats, big brakes, carbon fiber parts, and much more. Unfortunately, it’s only available in Japan and probably sold out of the 100 units they made. They don’t want you to have a GRMN 86.

UP GARAGE SUPER GT 86
Last year Team Up Garage partnered with Bando in the Super GT 300 class. Behind the wheel for the season was former F1 test driver Yuki Nakayama. It’s been equipped with a six-speed paddle shifted transmission and a 394hp naturally aspirated V8 motor.

YASHIO FACTORY 86
Normally you’d see Kazuyoshi Okamura of Yashio Factory building Nissans that clock in the 57-second range at Tsukuba, or D1GP war machines. For the most part, he paints his cars pink, probably to fool the competition. This year he took a stab at building an 86 with Blitz aero. We wonder what kind of power this thing is making.

JUN AUTO 86
While the Jun Auto booth lacked the Synergy V8 BRZ, it still had a cool 86 to back it up. It wasn’t surprising that it had plethora of Jun Auto bolt-ons, but it also rocked top-shelf parts such as Advan GT wheels and a swan neck rear wing.

DAMD 86
When the struggle is too real to get an Aston Martin, you can always get the Damd body kit. Famous for making a Lexus LFA kit for the 86, DAMD dreamed up exterior parts inspired by the Vantage. It comes with a front bumper designed with an Aston Martin-style grille, rear bumper, trunk spoiler, and new fender garnishes.

MAMA’S 86 BY PAPA
Okay, this is the second pink car on this list, but we can’t help it; the Varis kit looks so good, especially on Volk ZE40s. It’s not all show, either; it has a Trust turbo kit under the hood.

BN SPORTS 86
We think this will be a love-it-or-hate-it affair in the 86 community. It’s certainly aggressive, and a complete kit will run about $5,000. However, you might be pleased to know that they sell the parts individually.

BLITZ 86
Last year Blitz had a chromed out 86 that looked like it was ready to conquer the track. This year had a more tamed down street-looking 86 with Blitz’s own turbocharger.
