If you’re in the UK at the end of the month and fortunate enough to be at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, then you may want to book a little time in your schedule to see what Toyota has on offer.
The Japenese car giant has decked out six of its GT86 sports cars in classic liveries from the company’s racing history.
According to Toyota, each car is inspired by a different model.
They include two sporting versions of Toyota’s original sports car, the 2000GT, and Ove Andersson’s 1970s Celica 1600GT rally car — the machine that helped inspire Toyota to launch a full international motorsports programme.
In addition to the liveries, each car has also been given some slight styling tweaks to better reflect the cars they’re inspired by.
The IMSA GTU Celica that raced in North America in the 1980s, the World Rally Championship Celica GT-Four and the Esso Ultron Tiger Supra from the All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship are also celebrated.
Importantly, the cars won’t just be on static display either. Toyota says that they will also be available for public test drives on a course that includes Goodwood’s famous hillclimb.
