Added Appeal

Toyota has made this car an entry-level model for drivers who want to experience the thrill of high-speed racing. That means stripping out many of the features found in stock vehicles, producing one built for professional racing. The aim is to make it easy to maintain the Toyota GT86 CS-V3 Racecar without in-depth knowledge of racing technology.

The second thing that is likely to appear attractive for non-professionals is the low price for a car of this type. Its basic price is 38,500 Euros (just under $50,000) This makes the car accessible to many enthusiasts without breaking the bank.


The car looks sleek and streamlined, and is obviously a sports car. There is nothing particularly unique or impressive about the car’s physical appearance. It is not a car that will leave a lasting visual impression on people.

In fact, if it were not for the racecar style paintwork, this car looks very much like a standard coupe.
