The new Toyota GR 86, one of the world’s most keenly anticipated performance cars, will make its on-road debut this summer at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2021.
The coupe’s launch is set to create a new ‘Power of Three’ trio of global models developed with Toyota Gazoo Racing, benefiting from the same motorsports-inspired engineering and design prowess as the critically acclaimed GR Supra and GR Yaris.

GR 86’s appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2021, to be held in the grounds of Goodwood House in West Sussex from 8 to 11 July, is an early public preview prior to the car going on sale in the UK during 2022.
Running in the festival’s ‘First Glimpse’ showcase for upcoming exciting and exclusive road cars, it will demonstrate its handling and agility on Goodwood’s famous hill course, in the hands of an expert driver.
Festival goers will be able to see the car driven on the famous Goodwood Hill and get up close to it in the First Glance Paddock.
First revealed in an online presentation in April this year, GR 86 develops the qualities that made GT86 a multi-award-winning success as a car that delivered the purest joys of driving.
GR 86 follows the example of the Toyota GR Supra in making its world dynamic debut at the Festival of Speed, the two-seat coupe having been presented on-track at Goodwood in 2018.
The Toyota GT86 also made an early appearance at Goodwood as one of the star newcomers at the 2012 festival, ahead of its market launch later that year. GT86 went on to amass around 200,000 worldwide sales and featured in many different forms of motorsport, including GT racing, rallying and one-make series.
Toyota will announce details of further activities at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2021 in the coming weeks.
