Great to see Top Gear using a 2017 Toyota GT86 for the Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car segment.

Its the first rear-wheel drive car to be featured in this particular slice of the show. The car being used has been modified by the addition of a roll cage and removal of carpets and the rear seats.

The Toyota GT86 is powered by a 205 horsepower 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder linked to a 6-speed manual transmission. Since the GT86 only weighs 2,760 pounds, stars of the show are able to sprint to 60 mph in approximately 6.4 seconds if they're handy with a manual. Adding to the excitement is a track mode where the GT86 traction control is modified to allow drivers to truly maximize the vehicle’s potential.

They're going to have so much fun!
