We like the Toyota GT86. We also like retro-racer inspired liveries. So a bundle of six GT86s finished in classic Toyota racing colour schemes sounds like a pretty good deal to us!
Celebrating some 50 years of Toyota motorsport heritage, the six models have been vinyl-wrapped, lowered by 40mm, had stainless steel exhausts fitted and Rota alloy wheels bolted on. They look pretty damn awesome, and it took us a while to pick a favourite. Naturally, for ESM, it was the orange Esso liveried one but the red and yellow striped #98 is a close second.
The cars will be on show at the Goodwood Festival of Speed Moving Motor Show on Thursday 25th June, where members of the public will be able to drive them. Up the hill climb course. At Goodwood. Yeah, we know! So pick your own personal winner, and get yourself along to Goodwood later this month. Although you might have to try to drag ESM from the Esso sponsored car; you have been warned.
In case you’re wondering just where the inspiration from the above came from, take a look below:
Given the proliferation of classically themed motorsport liveries going on, we can’t promise that next week’s Friday Photo Gallery won’t be similarly retro orientated. You can blame it on hipsters, maybe.
