Toyota's sporty 86, the Supra's baby brother, had a bit of a refresh in August 2018 and received motorsport-inspired tweaks as well as a revised range. 

The current local line-up consists of a single derivative based on the high grade 6-speed manual package. And, the tailoring also included the addition of a GT86 badge and change of nomenclature to ‘GT86’.
