Have you ever seen cars dance before? #GR86 #FOS

Stunt drivers Paul Swift & Gina Walker collaborated with Choreographer Colin Sangster and professional Strictly Dancers Karen Hauer & Kai Widdrington to produce an incredible dance routine to celebrate the first dynamic appearance of the all-new #GR86 at Goodwood.

The latest model to join the elite range of Toyota’s “GR” performance cars was seen in action in public for the first time on the famous hill climb course at Goodwood House in West Sussex. It took to the track to give a flavour of the speed and handling quality delivered by direct development input from Toyota Gazoo Racing, Toyota’s international motorsports operation.

The Toyota GR 86 will be a successor to the multi-award-winning GT86. Due to launch during 2022, it will build on the qualities that distinguished the GT86, retaining a classic front-engine/rear-wheel-drive set-up. It will benefit from a larger, more powerful 2.4-litre horizontally opposed “boxer” four-cylinder engine and, while its dimensions will be near identical, it will gain an almost 50 per cent increase in torsional rigidity, key to its sharper handling and steering.
