Toyota Race & Rally Cars Tribute
The Toyota GT86 owes its attributes as an exceptional modern sports car – from its impressive handling to low-sling styling – to generations of classic performance Toyota’s. As a 50-year tribute, six GT86’s have been restyled with faithfully recreated vinyl wrap and decal liveries of their predecessors. Vintage styling elements have been included to transform the automaker’s current sports coupe into the classic look, which include stainless steel exhaust, retro-styled wheels and lowered springs.
Here they are, the originals alongside their remakes:
Yatabe Speed Trial Toyota 2000GT
The yellow and green one harkens back to the Yatabe Speed Trial 2000GT from 1966.
Shelby Toyota 2000GT

Ove Andersson’s Toyota Celica 1600GT
