TRD-Tuned Toyota GT86 Drifting in Thailand

Race-spec GT86 drifted around Phuket road circuit as Toyota introduces their latest sports coupe to Thailand.

This time they took a race-spec GT86, prepped by in-house tuning shop Toyota Racing Development (TRD), and a professional drift driver to a slippery road circuit in the southern province of Phuket.
Event-goers were then given the chance to ride shotgun in the two-door coupe as it was drifted to perfection.

Toyota says their new model was built "for the pure intrinsic of joy and drive." The Toyota GT86 carries an MSRP of $25,000 and features a 200hp 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual which sends power to the rear wheels.
