We cannot deny the performance and handling of the new Toyota GT86 Turbo, but how does it compare when put up against the likes of the McLaren MP4-12C? Well, we have a video below that aims to answer that very question for you.
You can’t help but smile when you watch videos of the GT86 doing its thing around a track, because she is a dream when it comes to drifting around corners. However, there is no denying that it lacks in the horsepower department, and so this is why there is the tuned up turbo version.
While the video may show the Toyota GT86 turbo holding its own on the track against the McLaren MP4-12C, let’s remember that the former is a stripped down version with no creature comforts, so uncomfortable bucket seats and race-spec slick tires.
Compare this to the McLaren that is just as it left the factory and so you can still feel at home driving this on the track, just as you can on the road. You will notice the McLaren is faster in a straight line, but in the corners the New Toyota GT86 Turbo has the edge. Having said that, we have to point out the Toyota is being driving by a race driver.
Watch the video and let us know what you thing about the test drives.
