86RC Comes To New Zealand

Isn’t Australia supposed to be the ‘lucky country‘? So why is it we have been bypassed on the ‘build your own’ version of the ZN6 86, the ‘RC’? Japan has embraced the ‘bare-bones’  model with open arms as almost every tuning house in the land of the rising sun grabbed one and put every combination of aftermarket parts into it.

So now that New Zealand is doing the same AND offering a slew of customisable Gran-Turismo style custom upgrades, I’m left wondering what the hell Toyota Australia is doing snoozing on getting the RC to Australian shores?

If you’re one of our Kiwi readers, check out what you can all walk down to the dealership and get at the official website here. For everyone else here in Australia and over in the US, well just visit it and cry a little I suppose.

    because toyota australia dont think they have the market for this. and they are completely fucking wrong on that point given the amount of already mildly modded 86’s there are getting around already and its not even a full 12mths yet.
    they completely miss read their market base missed and perfect opportunity to gain more sales the customisable options.
    they also did the same fucking thing with the rukus given that Scion in the US was offering 11ty billion dealer tuner options, and toyota aus went “nup! our youth dont want that!” like fuck we dont! also charging near on 30k for what is basically a big arsed camry wagon also really didnt help their cause.
