The 2023 Toyota 86 Special Edition is burning with solar shift paint

The 2023 Toyota 86 has got a new special edition variant for the new model year. Production will be limited to only 860 units.

Based on 86 premium trim levels, the defining feature of the special edition is the model-exclusive solar shift orange color. It gets a cat-back exhaust system and matte black 18-inch wheels.

No changes were made to the underside of the hood, so the special version used the same 2.4-liter Boxer-4 and 86 other models. The engine produces 228 hp and 184 pound-feet of torque and can be mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. Toyota quotes 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds with manual and automatically quotes 6.6 seconds.
