Video: Toyota GT 86 launches in UAE with burnout and drifting

Brett Davis 1

The highly anticipated Toyota GT 86 is slowly launching around the world, one region at a time, with the latest region being the United Arab Emirates. To coincide with the launch, Toyota has released a cracking new promo video.

The video showcases the GT 86’s drifting and general hooning ability, with a full-throttle burnout and some proper handbrake-style drifting. The video was shot in the hills of Fujairah.

In Australia, the GT 86 (simply the 86 in Australia and the UAE) is set to launch within a couple of weeks. It’ll come in two trim levels, powered by the Subaru-Toyota 2.0-litre boxer engine with 147kW. Pricing for the new model is still under tight wraps, however, it is very likely to enter the market at around the $38,000 mark.

Take a look at the latest video to see what all the fuss is about.

  1. Ugly body kit but great vid. Not that australia will ever be allowed to advertise something like that. At most we will get a vid of the car being stationary because anything else is hooning and not allowed on tv.
