Toyota GT86 CS-R3 Rally Car is Ready to Play in the Dirt

The Toyota GT86 -- along with its Scion and Subaru counterparts -- is already a familiar sight at track and autocross events, but now it’s ready to attack dirt and gravel rally stages. Under development since last summer, the Toyota GT86 CS-R3 should be ready to compete later this year and will meet FIA R3 regulations making it eligible for almost every rally event including the World Rally Championship.

Toyota Motorsports recently released final specs for the rear-drive GT86 CS-R3. For starters, the 2.0-liter boxer-four remains naturally aspirated, but now makes 235 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. Modifications include a retuned ECU and HJS racing exhaust and manifold. A Drenth six-speed sequential gearbox will ensure quick shifts, while a limited-slip rear differential should tighten up handling. Unlike the road-going GT86, the rally version foregoes electric steering for a hydraulic setup providing better feedback.

The suspension setup includes Reiger adjustable shock absorbers, MacPherson struts up front, and a multi-link system in the back.

Brake and wheel options differ depending on whether customers opt for the gravel or tarmac setup. The former, for example, gets 15-inch OZ wheels all around, while the tarmac-spec GT86 CS-R3 is fitted with 17s. Alcon four-piston calipers are used up front, though the tarmac version gets 330-mm brake discs compared to 300 mm for the gravel version. Out back, both versions get two-piston calipers and 295-mm brake discs. Both versions get an FIA-spec roll cage.

The kit is priced at 84,000 euros, though there’s a 5000-euro discount if customers order before April 24. Almost everything is included in the kit except seats, harnesses, fire extinguishers, battery, and other small items.
