Video: Toyota GT 86 goes drifting

New video shows a pair of Toyota GT 86 sports cars make drifting look a piece of cake

We’ve been excited for the Toyota GT 86’s arrival since we first clapped eyes on 2009’s FT-86 concept. And this video shows us exactly why. The spirit of the unfeasibly agile Corolla AE-86 is well and truly alive as two precision-driven GT 86s dance around a tight, cone-lined car park in Japan.  It looks fantastic fun, though we do sense it looks a little too easy; tweaked suspension or altered tyre pressures, perhaps? Even so, it holds much promise for when the £24,995 GT 86 and its 197bhp rear-drive chassis arrives in the UK this summer.
